Historical background[edit]

Ecuador was part of the Gran Colombia during 1819 to 1831 and then later became independent. during the early days of Ecuador, things were pretty bad, leaving the country unstable for the most part. Throughout the years Ecuador has had many border changes such as losing its border with Brazil in the Early 20th Century.

Just like Colombia, Ecuador also had a Liberal era, which lasted from 1895-1925.

In 1941, The Ecuadorian-Peruvian War broke out, leading to Ecuador's modern borders.

Events[edit]

Ecuador has no unique events, it merely has generic events the majority of the world also have.

National focus[edit]

Ecuador, lacking a unique national focus tree, uses the generic national focus tree instead.

The generic focus tree has 5 main branches:

  • Aviation Effort gives air experience, builds air bases, and research bonuses to air research.
  • Naval Effort gives navy experience, builds naval dockyards, and research bonuses to navy research.
  • Industrial Effort builds civilian and military factories (usually even if building slots are already full)and grants extra research slots.
  • Political Effort gives the country choices on which political path they will take.
