About Venezuela

Venezuela, officially, the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, is a country in northern South America, bordering the Caribbean Sea in north and the North Atlantic Ocean in east. Neighboring countries are Colombia in west and south west, Brazil in south and Guyana in east.
The country shares maritime borders with Dominica, the Dominican Republic, Guyana, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Trinidad and Tobago, Aruba (Netherlands), Curaçao (Netherlands), Montserrat (United Kingdom), Puerto Rico (United States), and the U.S. Virgin Islands (United States).

With an area of 912,000 km² Venezuela is slightly more than twice the size of Sweden or slightly more than twice the size of the U.S. state of California.

Venezuela has a population of 31.1 million inhabitants (in 2015) of whom 6 million live in the capital and largest city Caracas. The country's population is concentrated along the Caribbean coast, only 5% of all Venezuelans live south of the course of Orinoco river. Official language is Spanish.

Geography of Venezuela
The country has several distinctive geographic regions: in north west around Lake Maracaibo are the Maracaibo lowlands also called the Maracaibo Basin, which is bordered in east and west by a split extension of the eastern Andes mountain range (Cordillera Oriental), situated within the Cordillera de Mérida are, south east of the city of Mérida, Venezuela's highest mountains with Pico Bolívar (La Columna), the highest peak (4,981 m; 16,342 ft.) in the country.

Foothills of the Andes extend along Venezuela's Caribbean coast, known as the Northern Mountains, with the Segovia Highlands east of Lake Maracaibo and the Coastal and Interior Range in central north. In the center of the country is the Orinoco River basin known to the locals as Los llanos (llanos), a vast plain with flooded grasslands and savannas stretching from the Mérida range in west to the fan-shaped Orinoco delta in east, where the river flows into the Atlantic Ocean. South of the Orinoco's upper length sprawl the Guiana highlands with their famous table-top mountains (mesas), the highlands are part of the Guiana Shield, an old very stable geological formation which extends into west-central Guyana and in south into the Amazonas basin in parts of northern Brazil.
