What type of government did the Soviet Union have?

Communism. This is a great ideology type government where every people are equal. However, the government had a dictator called Joseph Stalin. He made millions die from famine, exhaustion from work because USSR was lacking behind for about 50 to 100 years from US, Germany and make himself look more superior (God) than the rest.

Communism was never that great either before or after Stalin. Communism is a slave labor system. That is why they need a wall to keep people in a communist country like East Germany for instance. They don't have the Bill of Rights in communist countries. They don't have freedom.

***Communism is not a type of government, it is an economic system. Stalin operated under a totalitarianism dictatorship, meaning that he had complete control over every aspect of the citizens lives. ***
