The soldier is Lei Feng. After his death, Lei was characterised as a selfless and modest person who was devoted to the Communist Party, Chairman Mao Zedong, and the people of China. In the posthumous "Learn from Comrade Lei Feng" campaign, initiated by Mao in 1963, Lei became the symbol of nationwide propaganda; the youth of the country were encouraged to follow his example.
The school boy is Dong Boyu, an extraordinary student, who in the age of 14 was already a member of the Communist Party and has declared his wish to become the president of the People's Republic of China.
An Ideal World is a Chinese manhua, comic series.
