North Korea is not a socialist (equalitarian) state, it is an extremist 

military dictatorship, it is no more socialist than Hitler's national socialism,
the nazi was ultra right, not on the left side.

Cuba has done some good job in science and education. What would it get to if 
there was not the blockade put in place by the US and continuously promoted 
by the Martini's Mafia?

USSR was no more a socialist state after Lenin's death. Stalin was more akin 
to Hitler than anything else. Saddam's Iraq was ruled on the Stalin model and 
no one called it socialist. Only with Gorbachev USSR came back to the 

socialist ideas, but it was short lived. The only true example of a near 
state has been given for 40 years by the Swedes. They have reached the highest 
per capita income and the best living standard.
