So apparently the United States has finally got it's 51st state O.O

That's right, there was an overall vote last night. And it was settled.
North Korea is now the 51st state of the US. Annexed as of today.

Kim Jong il was reinstated with a tertiary position of power. Right behind Biden.
What this means for the future, I don't know.

I predict an annexation of Canada in the near future, say 2076, following an invasion by the Chinese and a nuclear war.
