After the world heard of the new lead palace in Moscow they began to mass produce flame throwers to burn the pencils. Pencil factories were closed down immediately and were turned to flame thrower factories.
Only South Korea, with their genius, began to construct huge lead robots that stomped on the pencils. The boots had spikes so as to have more friction to grab the ground and to crush pencils. They also used giant flamethrowers to burn the pencils to ashes and boiling pools of lead. They also started mass production of incendiary bombs and B-2 stealth bombers.
