    So… my focus is more on the implications of this.

    A dictator tells his people the women in his country need to have more kids.

    That could be really really really bad.

    Like,… hundreds of thousands of women strapped to machines bad.

      This is North Korea. Why would they turn women into cattle, the consequence of disobedience is death and/or labor camp for them and any family anyway. Also I’m sure a significant part of the population is indoctrinated enough to just comply.

        The population is not dumb, people are just trying to make the best out of the situation. Like when they had some reporters go to a village, where women were sewing some clothes:

        • Reporter: “Do you like the life in the country?”
        • Woman (in subtitles): “We do what we can”
        • Guide-translator: “We do the best for our nation!”

        If they could, they might revolt, but NK is really well structured to prevent that… and even if they run away to the South, they find themselves in a modern country with no hireable skills.
