No they are not communist countries but they do fall into the spectrum of liberalism. It could be argued that these countries are socialist (i like to think canada already is a social democracy.)
I suppose you could look at it like this.
America is far right
China is far left
Canada, Russia, France, Brazil, Germany, Australia, Sweden, Finland, and so on and so forth, are between them.
Im no sure how to make this easy so you don't miss the point. um.
You have capitalism, and you have communism, the countries I listed take a little bit from each extreme, resulting in a free market social program filled country.
Oh and before you throw your hands up and shout I didn't say that I said this...
Communists and Libertarians might both oppose "government corruption", but have very very very different ideas about what to do about it.
Everyone of those countries is doing better than the US, and everyone of them have both capitalistic, and social policies that mesh very well together. For instance the Canadian, French and German Govt's all pay less as a % of GDP on their universal health system, then the US does for it's free market health system. Just one example.
