Paraguay is a landlocked country. Rivers make up most of its boundaries. The land consists mostly of large plains, plateaus, and hills. The climate is warm and humid. Most people live in the east. Paraguay's earliest-known people were Native Americans called the Guarani. The Guarani language is now one of the country's two official languages. Most of the people in Paraguay are mestizos of mixed Native American and European origin.
