A map of Ecuador.

Ecuador is a Latin American country which includes the Galapagos where Charles Darwin did some of his research. Ecuador has a range of different geographical features including the Andes mountain range and tropical rainforest.

Ecuador is traditionally a farming nation but benefited from oil during the 20th Century. Today problems in the oil industry have caused severe economic problems in Ecuador. Ecuador is a democracy but the president has severely limited freedom of the press.

Despite limits on press freedom in Ecuador the country gave fugitive Julian Assange a refuge when the USA, UK and Sweden hounded him. The world doesn't know yet how this will turn out. [1] [2]
