사회주의 문명국 건설 / Building of a civilized socialist nation / Sahoejuŭi munmyŏngguk kŏnsŏl
In a joint New Year editorial from 2012, Kim Jong-un proposed a social and cultural vision referred to as the "construction of a civilized socialist nation.” The term “civilized socialist nation” was one of the keywords that emerged during the Kim Jong-un era. In other words, this was a vision of "a country where socialist cultures are fully developed, a country where people have attained high levels of creativity and cultural, [where they] create and enjoy the best civilization at the highest level." The fields of focus include education, health, physical education, literature and art, socialist ethnic culture, moral discipline and cultural and sentimental life.
