The official language of Paraguay is Spanish. The food in Paraguay is greatly influenced by that of Uruguay and the Falkland Islands. It mainly consists of meat, vegetables, corn, and exotic fruits. It is typically cooked on a barbeque. 90% of the population is classified as Catholic in Paraguay. The most famous style of music is called Guarania, played by a guitar and a harp. Paraguay is the 8th biggest country in South America, with a land mass of 157,o46 square miles. The relative coordinates of Paraguay is latitude 23 degrees south and longitude 58 degrees west. The absolute coordinates of Asuncion, Paraguay is latitude 25 degrees south and longitude 57 degrees west. Paraguay was discovered in 1524 by a Brazilian adventurer. In 1617 its capital city, Asuncion was established. In 1806 when the British troops invaded Montevideo, Uruguay and Buenos Aires, Argentina, the Paraguayan troops took part of the war. During the first world war, Paraguay remained neutral therefore they were not impacted by the war. Paraguay grows mostly Corn, Soybeans, Tobacco, Cotton, Sugarcane, Peaches, Plums, Oranges, Pineapples, Mandarins, Guavas, Papayas, Avocados, and Mangoes. The rich soil and the subtropical climate in Paraguay makes it easier to grow citrus fruits. Most of the population in Paraguay is native, so some people as a living are obliged to farm.
