Venezuela in PicturesBook - 2005
Venezuela is the wealthiest South American nation and the 7th largest producer of petroleum in the world. However, in spite of the boom their economy is getting from the oil industry, political unrest continues to cripple their resources. Another worry Venezuelans face is drug traffic. Venezuela is part of a "safe" route for drugs from Columbia to North America and Europe. In spite of these problems, Venezuela remains a country with a rich cultural heritage, producing renowned art, music and literature.
