No, it was only recognized by Mongolia and the USSR. Not much of a country to me, more like a puppet nation.

They did (as part of a ruling coalition), but San Marino remained a multi-party democracy - this quiz is asking for countries that have ever been run as a single-party Marxist state.

I think it would be reasonable for North Vietnam to not automatically fill in after typing "Vietnam". By the way, just an idea for anybody who fancies making a new quiz: the same thing, but using modern day borders would be pretty cool, so you'd have to type all of the countries that made up the USSR instead of just USSR.

It would be interesting to add a column listing the number of their own citizens that these worker's paradises had to kill to keep the ruling elite in power over the years. After a while, an observer can see a pattern of revolution -> societal failure -> oppression (usually mass murder) -> collapse or serious reform to keep elite in power. The only truly communist county would have only one person left after the dictator had to murder everyone else to keep them in line.

No, a true communist country would be run for the benefit of the people. But unfortunately there are always power-hungry people willing to exploit others for their own gain.

Has there ever been a communist country that was really beneficial to its people? Cuba? The economy stinks. USSR? It's economy tanked and the rich live grandly while the poor suffer. China? Maybe a better example but much of the gains have been as a result of capitalist reforms. Vietnam? Socialism has had more success but democracy is still the least worst.

It happens in a global sense, for instance, American companies exploiting Bengali workers for cheap labour. Capitalism is just as flawed as communism, (if taken to the same extreme).

hellodrew - with the partial exception of "keeping the underclass in their place," you're right. But expand that to the last 120 and then you've got the Belgian role in Congo to think about. That was about as awful as it gets.

North Korea is still communist. They call it Jushe but its the same thing. Its allot closer to real communism than what china and the others do today. They were also founded as communist in 1945 by the U.S.S.R not in 1948.

None of those countries are "truly" communist, i.e for the fact, that they are countries.
