Another possible reason why North Korea is not on the list could be the total absence of Internet even in government and military institutions. Also note the presence of (not set) territory on the list. I suspect these are spies and other security and forensics professionals hiding their true location.

Other countries where people don’t know about memory dumps are:

Nicaragua
Honduras
Senegal
Western Sahara
Guinea-Bissau
Mauritania
Sierra Leone
Liberia
Mali
Burkina Faso
Benin
Niger
Chad
Cameroon
Gabon
Congo - Brazzaville
Central African Republic
Zimbabwe
Mozambique
Malawi
Madagascar
Afghanistan
Turkmenistan
Tajikistan
Papua New Guinea

I’m thinking now about Memory Dump Awareness Index (MDAI) to assign to each country :-)
