Well with Cuba under your belt this would be the logical next step.

I know. This or maybe Iran.

Nah, Iran isn't as hard, plus Hershelsdeals has already been, so that takes away from some of the novelty.

 I think those DPRK  organized tours are way easier then Iran, especially for someone frum etc..

Iran & DPRK have stable rule of law. Check out Algeria, Sudan, and etc.

North Korea anyone?http://www.businessinsider.com/what-is-it-like-in-north-korea-2015-10

They do treat you like heads of state. [Shut down the whole school to put on a performance for the couple]...

Though bowing down and placing flowers at the feet at the statue of the dictator may be a problem for us Jews.

I thought about this, but after watching a few dozen Youtube on DPRK Trip reports, the same attractions including hotels is like a broken record, would love to see a real TR of the DPRK in different towns and villages, now that would be a real TR.
I doubt it is possible. Dictatorships are not eager to let you roam around on your own. If they let you in, they allow you to see what they want you to see. Stalin's USSR had western visitors in the 1930s and all of them came back with glowing reports of life in the Soviet Union.
