The 10 most decadent dictators, article.
1. Kim Jong-il, "Dear Leader" of North Korea since 1994. The son of the communist state's "Great Leader", Kim Jong-il has super-expensive tastes, with 17 palaces and collections of hundreds of cars and about 20,000 video tapes. On one state visit to Russia, he reportedly had live lobsters airlifted daily to his armoured private train. He is believed to spend around $650,000 a year on Hennessy VSOP cognac and maintains an entourage of young lovelies known as the "Pleasure Brigade"
I'd say this at least makes Dear Leader sound less dangerous to other countries. If he likes luxury, he is a little lazy too, and also he knows that any major instability would threaten his lifestyle. I would be much more worried about a man who's a hard ascetic.
