The Korean Peninsula extends southward from the northeast part of the Asian continent between the 33rd and 43rd North Latitude and 124th and 132nd East Longitude. The standard meridian of the peninsula is 135, 9 hours ahead of GMT. The Amnokkang and Tuman-gang Rivers border both China and Russia to the north, and Japan is just across the East Sea. Since 1945, as a by-product of the Cold War, the peninsula has been divided at 38 North Latitude into the capitalist Republic of Korea, or South Korea, and the communist Democratic People's Republic of Korea.
