|Israel (Hebrew: מְדִינַת יִשְׂרָאֵל (help·info); Medinat Yisra'el; Arabic: دَوْلَةْ إِسْرَائِيل, Dawlat Isrā'īl), officially the State of Israel, is a country in Western Asia on the southeastern edge of the Mediterranean Sea. It is the Middle East's only parliamentary democracy and the nation state of the indigenous people of Eretz Yisrael (Hebrew: ארץ ישראל). As such, it is the world's only Jewish state, though its population includes citizens from many ethnic and religious backgrounds. (See also Israelis.)
Israel is bordered by Lebanon in the north, Syria and Jordan in the east, and Egypt in the south-west. It has a population of over seven million people, in an area of around 22,000 square kilometres (8500 square miles).
Israel has a technologically advanced economy and is ranked 23rd on the 2005 United Nations Human Development Index.
