How come there's Communist countries but no predominantly Fascist ones?

Been wondering this for a while. In the present day, China, Cuba, NK, Vietnam are all officially Communist. Most of these have been for a while, yet there are no examples of modern day countries with Fascism as the primary party in a state. Is there? Why not?

One could argue that Russia is a fascist state, and there's a definite argument for Venezuela being one... unless you merely count Mr. Chavez as being a modern day example of caudillismo.

The Axis kind of ruined facism for everyone heh
As a practical matter, globalization has tended to wear away at the underpinnings of fascism, e.g. the concepts of genetic superiority, ultranationalism and economic isolation.

Fascism and the Axis powers were the last hurrah for traditional society. The Revolutionaries won out. World War 2, on a higher level, was the final clash in the west between the two predominant social orders. Globalism is entirely contingent on the industrial society, which is entirely reliant on oil. The market has failed to produce an alternative which does oils job. Should it prove true that we run out of the carbon wonder that is oil, it is likely that industrial society will fade out with our oil reserves. Globalism will fall with it. With the fall of globalism it is likely that ethno-nationalism will once again play a dominant role in society. Such is the way of the human.

An aside note: genetic superiority is about as an amusing concept as egalitarianism. A failed attempt by Europeans to rationalize their success as anything but access to a cheap and vastly efficient resource. Of course, egalitarianism is an outgrowth of the societies created by that resource.

There are plenty of dictatorships, they just hide in plain sight as democracies.

Yup. French Canada is one of the more dastardly Fascist Dictatorships, with those with a keen eye to see it.
