Bisected horizontally by the equator - from which its name derives - and
vertically by the young volcanic Andes mountains, at only 270,670 sq km
[104,208 square miles] it is only a smidgen larger than Great Britain, and
no bigger than the state of Nevada in the United States. But if you imagine
its mountainous, peak-and-trough topography as a crumpled handkerchief, and
then smoothed that handkerchief flat, you would see that the surface area
of the country is far, far greater than it appears on a map. Despite this,
Ecuadorians still cultivate a deep inferiority complex. Losing some half of
its territory [in the Amazon] to Peru in 1942 and the pervasive influence
of the United States over its economy and politics have resulted in
Ecuadorians belittling their great nation.
