Venezuela's Geographic Challenge

Another video by Strafor.  This one on Venezuela. One thing that I took away from these videos is that it drastically alters my perception on what the nation actually looks like.  Most of Venezuela's population hugs the coast, the purple colored areas, and what infrastructure exists in the interior is mostly there to service the Orinoco Basin oil fields.  This means that of the southern portion of the country is a buffer zone, much like the United States. However, unlike the United States, which now has a substantial population living in its buffer regions, few Venezuelans live there. However, considering how sparsely populated the Amazon Basin is there is little risk for Venezuela's highlands for being taken or unduly influenced. Anyways, enjoy the video.
