There are envoys and diplomats who are allowed, and then there are people who escape. The "deserters" are usually demanded back by North Korea, and their families punished. It's more common to meet Cubans who haven't escaped and have been allowed out on special circumstances in my experience.

The only ones I've heard leave are defectors.

I recall this being the case. Most people are not legally allowed to leave the county, not even on vacation. I heard Kim's own brother went to out of the country just to go to a theme park, and when he came back, he was immediately arrested.

Most North Koreans are also so poor that they couldn't afford to leave the country anyways. Most of the population depends on subsistence farming and government aid, which means they are basically starved.

I remember watching their last parade a few months ago, and looking at their "military". Every single one of them in the general ranks is thin as a rail, uniforms hanging off them. I'd bet most were coerced, or doing it for guaranteed meals.

I've seen North Koreans, but they were government staff or military. Toured the DMZ in... 2007 I think. Had to sign a waiver saying I understood that anything could happen, including being shot.

You know, I was going yo edit this to make a joke that all of the groups are nazis, but in trying to find the source of the picture, I ended up reading a whole bunch of transgender comics and found that the original picture was actually about colors.
