Formerly known as República de Venezuela, since 15 December 1999 the country has taken the name of República Bolivariana de Venezuela. In its territory the Andean region, that of the llanos of the Orinoco (vast alluvial lowland), a wide strip of the Guayana massif and the Caribbean region come into contact. Discovered by Christopher Columbus, who in 1498 during his third voyage to America reached the mouth of the Orinoco, Venezuela owes its name to the Portuguese Alfonso de Ojeda and Amerigo Vespucci: the two navigators, in 1499, exploring the Caribbean coast, they had entered the lake of Maracaibo and they had come across some indigenous villages on stilts, the sight of which reminded them of Venice; for this reason they called the area Venezuela, that is, “little Venice”. The country was for a long time a province of the vast Spanish dominions, but it never knew the glories of other areas of the Iberian colonial empire; indeed, until the beginning of the twentieth century Venezuela lived in general conditions of poverty and backwardness, subjugated by the heavy colonial inheritances, expressed in the absolute domination of the Creole aristocracy. To revolutionize the situation, starting from the 1920s, the discovery of oil and natural gas fields intervened. These discoveries have led to a moderate industrial development, but have proved insufficient to heal the dramatic economic and social disparities. According to COUNTRYAAH, Venezuela is a nation in South America, the capital city of which is Caracas. The latest population of Venezuela is 28,435,951.

CLIMATE
Given the country’s position (approx. 1º and 12º lat. N), the climate has equatorial characteristics: temperatures, at least in the lowest areas, are relatively uniform with low annual temperature variations: in Maracaibo the average temperatures of January and July they are respectively 26 and 29 ºC, in Barcelona 24 and 26 ºC, in Maturín 23 and 25 ºC. Significant variations naturally occur as a function of altitude: thus in Caracas, located at over 1000 m, temperatures are 12 and 21 ºC and in Mérida, at 1600 m, of 17.3 and 19.8 ºC. As for rainfall, however, only the vast southern section, Guaianense, falls within the typical equatorial climate, with rainfall exceeding 2000-2500 mm, regularly distributed throughout the year; the llanos, on the other hand, have a tropical climate, with two seasons (rainy in summer, dry in winter) and overall less abundant rainfall, around 1000 mm per year. Values ​​and characteristics are not very different in the coastal region, although here the quantity of precipitation – often considerably lower – depends substantially on the possible obstacle opposed by the reliefs, or in any case on the more or less happy exposure to the trade winds. NE (in Caracas 800 mm per year, in Maracaibo 400 mm), which is responsible for the fundamental contributions of humidity.
