North Korea doesn’t share the same Internet with you. Little wonder you don’t see North-Korean related stuff on the net. North Korea’s Internet is only permitted with special authorization and primarily used for government purposes and by foreigners.

North-Korea is economically, politically and technology isolated. They have their own intra-net known as Kwangmyong which is routed through china.  It is an Internet controlled by the government, to ensure that foreign resources do not get into NK. 
The Internet does not let certain Western websites into North-Korea.
