Subj: Name a Communist political regime that didn't end up evil.

For extreme simplicity, I'll define an evil political regime as one that employs secret police.

I had to google a bit to find an unambiguous reference to something that sounds like secret police in Cuba, but here's an article:

And of course theocracies are also guilty of employing secret police, as is evident from this list, which includes both Communist and theocratic countries in today's world, as well as some other countries that don't fit in either category:

For fun, here's a list of countries that employed secret police throughout history, which of course will include Nazi Germany and Fascist Italy, as well as (disgustingly) the USA in the 50s, 60s, and 70s:

Can you name a Communist political regime that didn't employ secret police?

Do you agree that employing secret police is a valid litmus test for whether a political regime is evil?
