A Spanish-speaking state in South America. The name simply means “Equator”. Originally part of the Spanish Viceroyalty of New Granada, it later became part of the Republic of Gran Colombia before breaking away to become an independent state. It then consequently lost half its territory to Peru. Fortunately, it was territory in the Amazon Jungle Basin, where nobody lives anyway, but Ecuadorians are still very bitter about this.
