Third world is still in use.

More generally to describe conditions of poverty, rather than pinpointing a specific country as part of the Third World. I haven't heard First World or Second World used. But I get your point. Maybe "Nazi" is a better example than "Axis powers". People call other people Nazis all the time, but they don't actually think they are German National Socialists.
You're correct about the USSR.
