Which countries were communist in World War Two?
When the war began, only one country claimed to be Communist- the Soviet Union. (I say "claimed to be Communist" because they weren't really Communist in the sense that Marx described- they were actually brutal authoritarian dictatorships pretending to be Communist) As the war ended, the countries that were "liberated" by the Soviets were made into Communist dictatorships too. The Soviets would elevate Communist rebels and party leaders in those countries to be the new national leaders. These were mostly countries in Eastern Europe, such as Poland, Yugoslavia, Hungary and Romania.

What is the total number of Communist countries in the world today?
The countries which today are officially run by a Communist party today are: People's Republic of China, North Korea, Laos, Vietnam, Cuba, Nepal, Belarus, and Russia. So there are still 8 communist countries. Technically they are not communist because.... Communism is not where there's a leader/dictator. Communism is about ZERO government. The moment you add government, it's not longer communist. Countries such as North Korea are not even communistic. If you break down what they're doing piece by piece, they are NOT communist.

You do get free speech, way more than you would ever get in a capitalist society.
