A command economy is where the government chooses who produces goods, who they produce them for, and what items they produce.

The government has no control over what they do.

Cuba's Little White Lies
Cuba is considered a Communist and Unitary country. It has 15 provinces and one special municipality. They got their independence from Spain on December 10, 1898. It is uni cameral, which means consisting of only one house in the legislative branch. The meaning of this is that since Cuba is a dictatorship, they do not want anyone saying "no" to their laws and bills. In a federal government, there would be two houses in the legislative branch so that they could vote on laws and see if they are right for the country. In Cuba, there is only one political party, so that if you are a citizen and you vote, the only person you can vote for is the Communist Party of Cuba, or Raul Castro.
