The Equatorian Confederation (Dutch: Equatoriaanse Confederatie), is a presidential republic located in the northeastern South America. It is bordered by Bahia to the south, San Paulo to the west, Essequibo to the northwest, and the Atlantic Ocean to the north and east.
The country is very different of their neighbours, mainly due to the associated Dutch language and culture. The territory was previously owned by the portuguese, but with the Dutch invasion (mainly by Maurice of Nassau) and the Paulist War of Independence, Portugal gave part of the territory to the Dutch Empire, while they gave Essequibo to Portugal.
The Confederation declared independence with the religious leader Frater Kuiper and the politician Manuel de Carvalho, recognized by the recently independent Essequibo and also by Columbia and Portugal. With the fear of enter into war, the Netherlands was forced to cede the confederation.
