  • 2.  Venezuela's President Hugo Chavez has taken over from Fidel Castro the mantle of Latin America's leading opponent of the United States, which remains the largest customer for Venezuela's oil.  Mr. Chavez, a former colonel first elected in 1998 on a populist platform, has carried out a series of steps that he says are reshaping his country's economy to match his vision of "21st century socialism.“  The country's economy is dominated by the oil industry  Chavez has sought to counter American influence in the region, seizing control of the oil assets of American and European energy companies, and in other ways consolidating state control over the economy and nationalizing telephone and electricity companies.  Venezuela also refuses to cooperate with the United States to combat narcotics trafficking  Hugo Chavez and Barack Obama
  • 3.  Venezuela is governed under the constitution of 1999 and is a Federal republic  The president, who is both the head of state and the head of government, is popularly elected for a six-year term and may be elected to a second term  Members of the 167-seat unicameral National Assembly are elected for five-year terms.  Venezuela consists of 23 states, a federal district, of which Caracas is a part, and a federal dependency, which includes 11 island groups
  • 4.  Barinas stretches over vast cattle estates at the foothills of the Andes, Barinas is known for two things: as the bastion of the family of President Hugo Chávez and as the setting for a terrifying surge in abductions, making it a contender for Latin America’s most likely place to get kidnapped.  An intensifying nationwide crime wave over the past decade has pushed the kidnapping rate in Venezuela past Colombia’s and Mexico’s.  nowhere in Venezuela comes close in abductions to Barinas, with 7.2 kidnappings per 100,000 inhabitants, as armed gangs thrive off the disarray here while Mr. Chávez’s family tightens its grip on the state
