Since the USSR was the one calling the shots for the most part, it tends to be the default CommieLand while EastGermany also gets a lot of portrayal for being a spy hotzone (and in media tends to avoid the error that Communism=Russians). The other "middle" Eastern Bloc countries may come about when trying to depict a pretty poor and depressing place for the protagonist to infiltrate (With varying accuracy considering that some of these non-major Eastern Bloc countries like Czechoslovakia and Hungary had a relatively high standard of living). Those in the mood for making a war film will use Vietnam, where CommieLand is ripe with militias waiting to ambush capitalist soldiers.

In Eastern Bloc portrayals during the UsefulNotes/ColdWar, Commie Lands will undoubtedly be portrayed as flawless considering that media workers in the nation could easily get in trouble for creating anything that resembled dissent. Post UsefulNotes/ColdWar, the ex Eastern Bloc countries will portray their former regimes as heartless dictatorships, or if WhyWeAreBummedCommunismFell is in effect, regimes that had a good idea but squandered to bring it into fruition. (Film/GoodByeLenin is a great example of this kind of portrayal.)

After TheGreatPoliticsMessUp, Commieland usually returns to its {{Ruritania}}n heritage, essentially mixing the worst aspects of the old and the new and becoming a place of rampant crime and predatory capitalism (see TheNewRussia).

* During the UsefulNotes/ColdWar, the [[SovietRussiaUkraineAndSoOn Soviet Union]] and its satellite states (e.g. UsefulNotes/{{Afghanistan}}, UsefulNotes/{{Albania}}, UsefulNotes/{{Angola}}, UsefulNotes/{{Benin}}, UsefulNotes/{{Bulgaria}}, UsefulNotes/{{Cambodia}}, Congo-Brazzaville, [[UsefulNotes/CzechRepublic Czecho]][[UsefulNotes/{{Slovakia}} slovakia]], UsefulNotes/EastGermany, UsefulNotes/{{Ethiopia}}, UsefulNotes/{{Eritrea}}, UsefulNotes/{{Gabon}}, Guinea, UsefulNotes/{{Hungary}}, UsefulNotes/{{Mongolia}}, UsefulNotes/{{Mozambique}}, UsefulNotes/{{Romania}}, UsefulNotes/{{Poland}}, UsefulNotes/{{Somalia}}, Tanzania, Togo, and [[UsefulNotes/{{Yemen}} South Yemen]]) were this. The degree of their "commieness" (read: repression and depression for capitalist audiences or adherence to Marxist theory for communist audiences) depends: Czechoslovakia was relatively liberal and developed; Romania and Albania were Orwellian-like. The USSR was very developed on the other hand, but not as politically liberal as other Eastern Bloc states.

These places are often pretty depressing, dominated by dilapidated concrete architecture, people wearing drab Commie clothing and probably even the weather cold and rainy (unless it's some place like Cuba, when this trope [[XMeetsY meets]] BananaRepublic). Basic utilities are substandard, there are [[BlackMarketProduce shortages of almost everything]] ([[PropagandaMachine but the news service is all too happy to inform you]] [[WorstNewsJudgmentEver that a local foundry has just cast its 500,000th ton of raw steel]]) and what little consumer goods are produced are absolute rubbish, [[TheAllegedCar especially the cars]]. However, a foreigner will be glad to find out his spare change [[RidiculousExchangeRates is quite a sum in local currency]]. Locals, besides the clothing, tend to be TheEeyore or ApatheticCitizens, with possibly the only exception being GallowsHumour (often of RussianReversal variety). Which means it's no wonder they tend to be very keen on [[DrowningMySorrows alcohol]]. There's no free speech, either. [[SarcasmMode On the up side]], there's always [[SecretPolice someone]] [[BigBrotherIsWatching caring for you]], and frequent [[MillionMookMarch public festivities]]. You can as well expect secret weapons facilities (especially in the biological field of WMD).
