Paraguay, officially the Republic of Paraguay, is a landlocked country in central South America, 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 Corazón de Sudamérica ("Heart of South America"). Paraguay is one of the two landlocked countries (the other is Bolivia) that lie outside Afro-Eurasia. Paraguay is the smallest landlocked country in the Americas.

The indigenous Guaraní had been living in Paraguay for at least a millennium before the Spanish conquered the territory in the 16th century. Spanish settlers and Jesuit missions introduced Christianity and Spanish culture to the region. Paraguay was a peripheral colony of the Spanish Empire, with few urban centers and settlers. Following independence from Spain in 1811, Paraguay was ruled by a series of dictators who generally implemented isolationist and protectionist policies.

Following the disastrous Paraguayan War (1864–1870), the country lost 60 to 70 percent of its population through war and disease, and about 140,000 square kilometers (54,054 sq mi), one quarter of its territory, to Argentina and Brazil.

Through the 20th century, Paraguay continued to endure a succession of authoritarian governments, culminating in the regime of Alfredo Stroessner, who led South America's longest-lived military dictatorship from 1954 to 1989. He was toppled in an internal military coup, and free multi-party elections were organized and held for the first time in 1993. A year later, Paraguay joined Argentina, Brazil and Uruguay to found Mercosur, a regional economic collaborative.

As of 2009, Paraguay's population was estimated to be at around 6.5 million, most of whom are concentrated in the southeast region of the country. The capital and largest city is Asunción, of which the metropolitan area is home to nearly a third of Paraguay's population. In contrast to most Latin American nations, Paraguay's indigenous language and culture, Guaraní, remains highly influential. In each census, residents predominantly identify as mestizo, reflecting years of intermarriage among the different ethnic groups. Guaraní is recognized as an official language alongside Spanish, and both languages are widely spoken in the country.

Alfredo Stroessner[]

Many South American countries suffered the rule of cruel, vain, corrupt dictators, but none for so long as Paraguay under Alfredo Stroessner. From 1954, when he seized power in a coup, to 1989, when his former right-hand man forced him into exile, Stroessner enforced his absolute power and cult of personality through bribery, fear, and torture. He made Paraguay a safe haven for evil, from smugglers to ex-dictators to Nazi war criminals. When Stroessner died, 17 years after his exile, Paraguay was still scarred by his reign.

Dawn of Man[]

"Alfredo Stroessner, the people welcome Paraguay's return to peace and stability! As one in a cycle of authoritarian dictatorships, you came to power in 1958 on the heels of yet another military coup. But yours would be a regime to last decades; bringing stability, economic expansion, and international recognition like the nation had never before seen. This would come at a cost, however; for your lasting legacy would be as one of the most brutal, violent, and totalitarian dictatorships in South American history, and one to be put down in the manner it began in 1989.

President eternal, Paraguay's enemies are all-around. Only those loyal to the Colorados can be trusted to wield the power of the state. Can you ensure your totalitarian control? Can you induce the compliance of your people? Can you build a civilization that can stand the test of time?"

Introduction: "I am Alfredo Stroessner, glorious president of Paraguay. If you are a friend, I welcome you with open arms. But if you are an ideologue, I welcome you with a different kind of arms."

Defeat: "You have committed boundless crimes against my people. Paraguay will never forgive you this."
