Paraguay, formally known as the Republic of Paraguay, is a country situated in South America.

It is positioned on the banks of the Paraguay River, sharing its borders with Argentina towards the south and southwest, with Brazil towards the east and northeast and Bolivia towards the northwest. The name "Paraguay" comes from the Guarani term Paraguay which means "from a great river". The initial settlers in this region were the Europeans who came to this region during the sixteenth century. Paraguay gained independence in the year 1811, after overthrowing the Spanish authorities.
