Xī Cháoxiǎn 西朝鲜

“The people of China and North Korea have great power.”

Pejorative term for China, literally “North Korea of the West.” Some netizens have complained about similarities between North Korea and China, such as repressive leaders, a lack of democracy, official corruption, and a fear of the West.

The following question—which has long since been deleted—on China's Quora-like Q&A service Zhihu provides an example:

请问如何在一个号称民主的国家,把世袭制玩的这么溜?请参考朝鲜和西朝鲜分析一下? [Chinese]
