The lack of clients, the lack of life, the lack of the will to live.

Let me guess.
A "supermarket" in the care-fully-managed show city of Pyongyang, uploaded to the North Korean propaganda YouTube account, with some sneering commentary about "The West" in the description.
Right? Sure I'm right.

So is it the military or other higher-ups that get to "buy" this stuff, or is it all just a bunch of props for tourists?

Everything about North Korea seems like some sort of hell. This seems like a Chekhovian hell, but other things about the place seem like a Kafkaesque hell, or a quixotic hell, or of course an Orwellian hell. And all of this ridiculous foolishness to cover up that the place is really a Dante hell.
I wish the rest of the entire fucking planet would hurry up and force North Korea to conform already. At least the horrendous places in Africa and the Middle East don't try with every ounce of their being to deny the truth.
I'm kind of amazed North Korea hasn't become the world's largest sweatshop by now. I mean, if they're willing to do apparently pointless tasks for their Great Leader, surely some country would give the dictatorship a load of cash for a 24/7 workforce of disposable slaves.
Never underestimate the human ability to do things contrary to their best possible option.
North Korean government officials also utilized land that could have been used to grown food (in a country that has recurrent issues with famine) to grow opium poppies, thus ensuring the starvation of thousands.

That place looked like a thrift store to me.

A stillness is in the air. Some are keeping their heads down, pretending to shop for items. Others stand outside and watch with dead eyes.
A military zydaco band is setting up in the grass...

It must be nice to be one of the hundred or so families that can afford to shop there.
