    • Abstract:
      Colombia is a republic in South America surrounded by Panama to the north, Venezuela and Brazil to the east, Ecuador and Peru to the south, and the Pacific Ocean and Caribbean Sea to the west and north. Colombia's long history of social unrest and drug-related violence is well documented. However, the country is one of the more stable democracies in South America, having experienced free elections for the last fifty years. Famous for its production of coffee, Colombia is the third-largest exporter of coffee in the world, the fourth-largest exporter of coal, and one of the Latin America’s largest producers of oil.
