The monumental, neoclassical "Mansudae" Assembly Hall, decorated with marble, granite and mural paintings, houses the Supreme People's Assembly. While formally the main legislature, the 687 representatives rarely convene, leaving the higher-ranking Presidium with all legislative power. Although the late Kim Il-Sung's self-proclaimed "Juche" ideology posits that the Korean people are the self-reliant masters of their own development, the dictatorian reality is leading the country into total isolation.
