This is the interior of a typical village residence in Huaxi
Village (华西村), of Jiangsu
Province. Under the leadership of CCP secretary Wu Renbao,
who passed away last week at the age of 85, the villagers
stick to a collective system of socialism originally introduced
by Chairman Mao through his revolutionary rural reform.

Huaxi Village which was built with the fund put together
by each village household.
The event of Mr Wu's death once again draws the world's
attention to an amazing story of success in getting rich
together in a Chinese village that is determed to keep its
commune system which is proven to be like a large fishing
trawler allowing the villagers to catch fish in the wild
river of the world market without the risk of being swallowed
Currently the annual income per capita in the village succeeds
120,000 RMB, and according to Wu Renbao, it is Chairman Mao's
socialist spirit and collective economy that makes Huaxi's
dazzling success possible.
"Huaxi Village's sky is the CCP's sky, Huaxi Village's
land is the socialist land, (华西村的天是共产党的天，华西村的地是社会主义的地)" which
are two lines in the village anthem that was composed by
him and broadcast daily by the village's broadcast station.
