Divided, as its name indicates, by the equator, this country is the most densely populated in South America. This does not prevent it from also being the country with the greatest biodiversity in the world. In addition to Spanish, there are thirteen other indigenous official languages. Ecuador is a major oil exporter and the main producer of bananas.
