China's "Communist" Status

Hello, I just joined this list yesterday in order to learn more about Karl
Marx, and possibly some of the teachings of Mao Tse Tung. Here are my
questions. I hope someone can comment.

In order to be considered a true "Communist" nation, there is a large
revolutionary process that goes on. Is China in that process? How far have
they come? And what are your thoughts on true and complete communism and how
well the nation would function both internally and internationally under
this system?

Just one more: If I am correct in assuming that Marx wished to turn eventual
control of the entire country to the proletariat, then how did he predict
this would work? (ie. elections etc...)

Your thoughts and comments would be appreciated! Thanks in advance.
