Linux After about a year of work, the ArchLinux distribution now offers a variant running on the FreeBSD kernel. Says the developer, "Why would I do this? If like me, you enjoy FreeBSD and love it, but also like the philosophy behind Arch Linux, which is a fast, lightweight, optimized distro, I figured why not combine the both. Even though you could just do it on FreeBSD using the ports, not everyone wants to compile." This now puts Arch in the same category as Debian with Debian GNU/KFreeBSD, which offers a Debian userland on top of a FreeBSD kernel.

Are you sure you're not talking about North Korea or Cold War-era Eastern bloc states?

ex-Cold War-era Eastern bloc state here: please don't compare us to NK. The political system may have been thoroughly f'ed up, but I assure you we didn't pull crazy shit like systematically starve our own people to death. Compared to NK, Cold War-era Eastern bloc countries were free market democracies.
