* North Korea has been attempting to "cleanse" themselves of people with deformities, missing limbs, and other undesirable traits, though not by directly killing them out of fear of international repercussions. Instead, disabled people are castrated and left to fend for themselves. Two defectors have even mentioned that there's a village in a remote region of the country populated entirely by people with dwarfism.
