In olam-ha-ba (the world to come) if righteous jews inherit the land of Israel and if the righteous gentiles shall rule with the righteous Yehudim in olam-ha-ba (the messianic age) do the righteous gentiles inherit their own respective land, i.e ... China, India, Japan, Africa, Europe ,etc...?

In olam-ha-ba (the messianic age) do righteous gentiles inhabit/ rule their respective land under Melech Hamashiach? For example will a righteous chinese man inhabitting china recieve his alloted inheritance in china in olam-ha-ba? Or would his inheritance be in the land of Y'srael among the Yehudim?

I feel like they're is confusion in this question between the distinct ideas of the messianic age, and the world to come after death. –  andrewmh20 Jul 29 '14 at 17:10
Well technically the messianic age is the world to come and it is not exactly improper to refer to it as such being the the messianic age is the final conclusion of this Earth. The messianic age is there fore the world to come being the eternal destiny of this current world. Gan Eden is more applicable to the life after death. –  eliyah Jul 29 '14 at 22:09
It's a dispute between Rambam and Ramban! –  havarka Jan 2 at 11:35
