It would be incautious to characterize an epoch in any country as "modern" when so much else remains traditional and charismatic. A "modern ideology" does not guarantee modernity.

It has a gigantic, modern-equipped military and launches rockets...Yet in terms of political practice, it is a hereditary monarchy where senior officials are patriarchally designated "father", "uncle", "brother" and so forth.
