Cuba is officially Communist. In reality, it is ruled by the Castro family, who leave everyone else impoverished while party members have a standard of living not much below that of industrialized nations. Cuba has never had a democracy, and all real socialist nations are democratic. Castro has never had a real election or competition for office.
