The Korean Peninsula lies in the middle of Northeast Asia, and since 1945 it has been divided into two distinct sovereign states: North Korea (officially the "Democratic People's Republic of Korea") and South Korea (officially the "Republic of Korea"). Bordered by China in the northwest and Russia to the northeast, it is separated from Japan to the east by the Korea Strait and the East Sea. The population is 76,497,881.

Koreans excel in innovation and discovery in science and technology. Their early inventions include soybean cultivation, the star chart and astronomical observation, movable type printing, water and rain gauges, the active greenhouse, and many other progressive inventions. More modern developments by Korean scientists include the MP3 portable player; the MP3 phone; the solar phone; EyeCan, an eye-tracking mouse for use by people with disabilities; the Smartwatch; Retina display and more.
