Essequibo, officially the Republic of Essequibo (Portuguese: República do Essequibo), is a republic located on the northern coast of South America. It is bordered by New Granada to the west, San Paulo to the south, San Martin to the southwest, Equatorian Confederation to the east, and the Caribbean Sea to the north.

Essequibo is considered a state with extremely high biodiversity, with habitats ranging from the Andes Mountains in the west to the Amazon Basin rain-forest in the south, via extensive llanos plains and Caribbean coast in the center and the Orinoco River Delta in the east. Is member of the Lusophone Union.

The country became a republic in 1934, after the Great Depression, which affected the country's economy and politics, as well. The King Pedro III suffered a coup d'etat and became exiled in Normandy, France. The first elected president was the civilian, José Carneiro.

During the Cold War, Essequibo became known worldwide by the oppositions against the United States and the Soviet Union, which also provocated a flop on their relations with San Paulo. This time, the country was tending by social-liberal politics, influenced by the counterculture of the 60's. A mass immigration came from San Paulo during that period. The Jonestown, established by the cult leader, Jim Jones, was founded in almost the same era.
