Second World generally refers to countries that are under a Communist, Socialist (not socially-democratic), and/or Totalitarian regime. Most of these countries are considered "Eastern Countries" and are located in Eastern Asia, such as China. Many countries in Eastern Europe are also considered "Second World" along with Poland and Romania. According to nationsonline.org, many of the "Second World" counties were part of the Soviet Union or Yugoslavia

Alternatively, Second World can also refer to developing nations that are further technologically-advanced than "Third World Countries" but not as advanced as "First World Countries."
