The super secretive state somehow made its secret internet public this week — and revealed that it apparently only has 28 websites.

Earlier this week, a list of websites registered to the domain “.kp” somehow showed up publicly for the rest of the web — likely by accident — and revealed a list of only 28 websites registered under .kp — in contrast to the millions registered under other country domains (such as “.uk,” for the United Kingdom) or the 140 million-plus registered under “.com.”
