With the main member of the EA gone, the other nations in the organization follow suit rapidly. The only regime change that takes place because of these events is in North Korea.

After being contacted by US, South Korean, Japanese, Chinese and Russian agents, a group opposed to Kim stages an almost bloodless coup. The whole world heaves a huge sigh of relief and Kim is not mourned anywhere on the face of the Earth.

A four party Democratic Republic system is guaranteed in the North Korean Constitution and a 'Bill of Rights' very similar to the US version is included. When Constitutional Delegates are asked about this, the main answer is, "We saw how it worked in the US and we believe it can work here also."

Millions in humanitarian aid pour into the country followed by billions in investment capitol. Within six months the first general elections are held and in a closely contested race, the slightly 'Left-of-Center Four Winds Party' gains a 38 seat majority in the House and Senate. Their first order of business is to eradicate the DMZ and after clearing the minefields, thousands of Korean relatives are reunited.

One heartrending 'reunion' is captured by a CNN crew live onsite, as 4 generations of one Family spot each other, the North Korean Great-granddaughter Lin Lay Foh - who was destined to become the symbol of N. Korean Freedom- throws herself upon her Great-grandmother who she is seeing for the first time in her life, weeping with joy.

One interesting outgrowth of the 'Korean Revolution' was that the entire 'tunnel system' that had been dug to facilitate an invasion of the 'South', turned out to be the perfect breeding ground for the mushroom that would change the culinary world. The Korean 'Hot Caps', as they came to be known, spawned a Nine Billion Dollar a Year Growth Industry and the establishment of Korean Cooking Schools around the globe.

In an interview with CNN years later, former General Yong Son Park mused, "Who would ever have predicted this outcome when we were digging those Hell holes, they have now become major tourist attractions."
