North Korean Reactors
#1
There are 2 reactors at the yongbyon site. A 5 MW gas-graphite reactor and a 20-30 MW Experimental Light Water Reactor (ELWR). If you can find it on google maps, you'll notice how remote it is. I wonder about staffing and what happens when something goes wrong.

This website has a great analysis of the ongoings of North Korea by use of satellite photos among other sources. They have very good coverage of reactors most likely being used for weapons grade material production. Oh and they might also generate electricity for the people someday...
