Ecuador, officially called the Republic of Ecuador, is an American country located in the southern section of this continent. It limits to the north with Colombia, to the south and to the east with Peru and to the west with the Pacific Ocean, which separates it from the Galápagos Islands, located to 1000 kilometers, from the peninsula of Santa Elena to the island San Cristóbal. A volcanic section of the Andes mountain range divides the territory from north to south, leaving to its western flank the Gulf of Guayaquil and a wooded plain, and to the east, the Amazon.

It is the tenth most populous country in America, with just over 17 million inhabitants, the most densely populated in South America and the fifth on the continent. Ecuador is a recent energy power based on ecosustainable energies, and it is also the country with one of the highest concentrations of rivers per km2 in the world, one of the countries with the highest diversity per km2.

The first human settlements in the territory date back to 12,000 years a. C.

The Inca Empire partially conquered the region in the mid-15th century, and in 1543 the Spanish conquest began, after which it remained part of one of the viceroyalties of Spain for almost three hundred years. The independence era had its origins in 1809 and began the emancipation process from 1820 to 1822. After the definitive independence of Spanish rule, part of the territory quickly integrated into Gran Colombia, while the territory of the coast remained independent until the annexation manu militari by Simón Bolívar. In 1830 the Colombian territories of the south separated and the Ecuadorian nation was created. From the beginning of the republic there was political instability, which led to the origin of several revolutions throughout the nineteenth century and conflicts bordering Colombia. The twentieth century was marked by conflicts bordering Peru and the formation of military governments.

In 1979, the country returned to the democratic system, although political instability from 1996 to 2006 led to an economic, political and social crisis that led to the dollarization of its economy and the overthrow of three presidents before the end of its term.
