Korea,[2] officially United Korea[3] and occasionally referred to by the former South Korean endonym, Hanguk (한국),[4] is a country on the Korean Peninsula of Asia on Earth.[2]


The Korean Peninsula was previously divided into two countries: North Korea and South Korea. A few hundred years prior to the Human-Covenant War, a long sought after treaty united the two. After the creation of the United Nations Space Command, many different bases—military and otherwise—were established in the country. These became sites of critical importance for the testing of ordnance and the training of officers, especially during and after the Covenant War.[2]



Economy and society[edit]

United Korea is known as a technological powerhouse. This came about largely due to its government's strong emphasis on education. The country is home to many many significant UNSC facilities that specialize in training, weapons testing, and MJOLNIR Powered Assault Armor development.[2]


  • The M6G Magnum has Korean Hangul symbols on its barrel and on the bottom of its magazine.
  • The now-cancelled Halo Online map Sky bridge was to have been set inside a skyscraper in Seongnam, Korea.
  • In Halo 5: Guardians, a location called New Gangwon is mentioned. It is also possible that "New Gangwon" represents a reconstitution of the historical Gangwon Province, which was divided into the southern Gangwon Province and the northern Kangwon Province during the twentieth-century partitioning of Korea. When Korea reunited, it is possible that these two provinces were again reunited under the name "New Gangwon". That New Gangwon might be located within Korea on Earth is made more plausible by the fact that New Gangwon is known to be home to weapons development facilities.
