What happens if you break the law in North Korea?

There are several punishments you can receive if you break the law in North Korea, but the two main one are either a prison sentence or you go to the firing squad. It is worth noting that prison sentences in North Korea also include torture as a regular accoutrement.

Do not break the law in North Korea. The criminal justice system there is abhorrent and North Korea uses Western detainees as leverage in negotiations with Western powers, meaning that you may be detained longer, tortured more, or have any number of painful acts visited upon you in an attempt to extract concessions from a Western State. North Koreans who are imprisoned are often subject to hard labor with no advocate or means of self-defense (in both a physical and legal sense).
