Background: Venezuela was one of three countries that emerged from the collapse of Gran Colombia in 1830 (the others being Ecuador and New Granada , which became Colombia). For most of the first half of the 20th century , Venezuela was ruled by generally benevolent military strongmen , who promoted the oil industry and allowed for some social reforms. Democratically elected governments have held sway since 1959. Hugo CHAVEZ , president since 1999 , seeks to implement his "21st Century Socialism ," which purports to alleviate social ills while at the same time attacking globalization and undermining regional stability. Current concerns include: a weakening of democratic institutions , political polarization , a politicized military , drug-related violence along the Colombian border , increasing internal drug consumption , overdependence on the petroleum industry with its price fluctuations , and irresponsible mining operations that are endangering the rain forest and indigenous peoples.
