Paraguay is landlocked, but the Paraguay River is navigable to the sea. It joins the Paraná River, and then the Rio de la Plata, which empties into the Atlantic Ocean. The Paraguay River divides the country into the Chaco Plain and an eastern region.
The Paraguayan First Nations were mostly Guarani farmers and Guaycuru nomads. Spanish explorers made first contact in 1516 and established a colony in Asunción in 1537. Jesuit missionaries destroyed Indigenous societies until they were expelled in 1767. Paraguay became independent in 1811 by overthrowing the local Spanish government.
