The Community of Jewish Socialists of Chelm is a huge, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Simon with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 976 million Jewish Socialists of Chelmians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of West Jerusalem. The average income tax rate is 83.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Jewish Socialists of Chelmian economy, worth 99.3 trillion shekels a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 101,769 shekels, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A shocking number of estate planners are beneficiaries of their clients' wills, athletic teenagers are among the wealthiest members of society, the government recently relinquished its monopoly on the mail service, and moonshine has made a resurgence. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jewish Socialists of Chelm's national animal is the red heifer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Jewish Socialists of Chelm is ranked 22,380th in the world and 152nd in The Leftist Assembly for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 238.12 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
