Venezuela

'''Venezuela''' ( with an estimated population around 29,100,000. Venezuela is considered a state with extremely high biodiversity (Megadiverse countries), with habitats ranging from the Andes Mountains in the west to the Amazon Basin rainforest in the south, via extensive ''llanos (Los Llanos, Venezuela)'' plains and Caribbean coast in the center and the Orinoco River Delta (Orinoco Delta) in the east.

The territory currently known as Venezuela was colonized by Spain (Spanish colonization of the Americas) in 1522 amid resistance from indigenous peoples (Indigenous peoples in Venezuela). In 1811, it became one of the first Spanish-American colonies to declare independence (First Republic of Venezuela), which was not securely established until 1821, when Venezuela was a department of the federal republic of Gran Colombia. It gained full independence as a separate country in 1830. During the 19th century, Venezuela suffered political turmoil and autocracy, remaining dominated by regional ''caudillos'' (military strongmen) until the mid-20th century. Since 1958, the country has had a series of democratic governments. Economic shocks in the 1980s and 1990s led to several political crises, including the deadly Caracazo riots of 1989, two attempted coups in 1992 (1992 Venezuelan coup d'état attempts), and the impeachment of President Carlos Andrés Pérez for embezzlement of public funds in 1993. A collapse in confidence in the existing parties saw the 1998 election (Venezuelan presidential election, 1998) of former coup-involved career officer Hugo Chávez and the launch of the Bolivarian Revolution, beginning with a 1999 Constituent Assembly (1999 Constituent Assembly of Venezuela) to write a new Constitution of Venezuela.

Venezuela is a federal (federation) presidential republic consisting of 23 states (States of Venezuela), the Capital District (Venezuelan Capital District) (covering Caracas), and federal dependencies (Federal Dependencies of Venezuela) (covering Venezuela's offshore islands).
