Paraguay, officially the Republic of Paraguay, is a landlocked country in South America. It is bordered by Argentina to the south and southwest, Brazil to the east and northeast, and Bolivia to the northwest. Paraguay lies on both banks of the Paraguay River, which runs through the center of the country from north to south. Due to its central location in South America, it is sometimes referred to as Corazon de America, or the "Heart of America."
As of 2009 the population was estimated at 6.3 million. The capital and largest city is Asuncion. The official languages are Spanish and Guarani, both being widely spoken in the country. Most of the population are mestizos.
Guarani have been living in Paraguay since prior to the arrival of Spaniards in the 16th century, when Paraguay became part of the Spanish colonial empire. Paraguay gained independence from Spain in 1811.
