Can You Name All Five Communist Countries in the World Today?

Matt Rosenberg | ThoughtCo

During the reign of the Soviet Union, communist countries could be found in Eastern Europe, Asia, and Africa. Some of these nations, like the People’s Republic of China, were (and still are) global players in their own right.
