Almost two-thirds of Venezuela's land is protected, the most of any country. Of its burgeoning population, which has increased five-fold over the past 40 years, 6.6% of people are over 60 and 34% are under 15 - compared with 20.7% and 19.1% respectively in the UK. Venezuela is the world's second-largest beer consuming country, with 76.7 litres sold per person. The UK comes a piffling 23rd, with 31.7 litres, although the Brits remain second behind Ireland in overall alcohol consumption.
