Paraguay, a landlocked country, is located within South America. It is bordered by Argentina, Brazil, and Bolivia. There are ports located on both the Paraguay and Paraná rivers that exit through to the Atlantic Ocean. Paraguay is home to a population of over 7 million inhabitants, 3 million of which reside in the capital, and largest, city of Asunción. The total land area of the country is 406,796 square kilometers, or 157,065 square miles, making Paraguay the 59th largest country in the world. The government system is a representative democratic republic. The current president is Mario Abdo Benítez.
The Río Paraguay river splits Paraguay into two geographical regions – the eastern region of Región Oriental and the western region of Región Occidental, which is a part of the Gran Chaco. The terrain of Paraguay mainly consists of grassy plains and hills. The highest peak in Paraguay is located within southeastern Paraguay, and it is Mount San Rafael, standing at an altitude of 2,789 feet or 850 meters. Although the country is landlocked, there are a few beach areas surrounding lakes. The climate of the country is noted to be tropical or subtropical, with wet and dry periods. The absence of mountain ranges in the country causes high winds, sometimes as high as 161 km/h, or 100 mph.
