Israel

Country in western Asia

Israel is a country established by a United Nations (UN) resolution in 1948, in a partitioning of the Palestine territory previously occupied by the United Kingdom.

The Israeli government is a Parliamentary system, where people vote for parties, and parties receive seats based on what percent of the popular vote they receive. As of 2019, the cutoff for a party to receive seats in the government was 3.25%. After an election, the parties negotiate with each other to form a coalition of parties with a majority of the seats. Once a coalition is formed, the parties in the coalition choose a prime minister.

The 2019 population estimate is 9,025,000, and the GDP is $390.7 billion ($43,199 per capita).

The official language is Hebrew. English, Arabic, Russian, French, Amharic, and German are also each spoken by 100,000 or more people in the country.

By ethnicity, 74.5% of the population is Jewish and 20.9% is Arab.
