No country has absolute free speech.  Be more specific, there are many types of speech.   For example:

1) Freedom to communicate any political belief
2) Freedom to communicate any knowledge
3) Freedom to communicate any philosophical belief
4) Freedom to depict sexual material, and/or freedom to communicate sexuality in certain ways
5) Freedom to communicate threats and intentions to engage in crimes
6) Freedom to  communicate business fraud and/or other types of fraud
7.)Etc.

Most countries have 1 to 4
China does not have any.

Not true: Most Western democracies have criminalized speech on politics, philosophy, and knowledge they classify as "racist."
