I could be wrong but I don't think communist countries tend to have much in the way of slums, perhaps Cuba does to some extent.

Historically the communist world was characterised by utilitarian, functionary concrete tower and apartment blocks.

I don't doubt the rural poor in North Korea have very basic accommodation, but I would be surprised if Pyongyang had miles of adjoining shanty-town.
You will find some of the biggest slums in the world in the self-proclaimed 'Land of Milk and Honey', the good ol' US of A. Great place to be rich, terrible for the rest.
