9.GEOGRAPHY - Paraguay is a landlocked country surrounded by Argentina, Bolivia and Brazil, lying some 1440km (900
miles) up the River Paran?from the Atlantic. The River Paraguay, a tributary of the Paran? divides the country into two
sharply contrasting regions. The Oriental zone, which covers 159,800 sq km (61,700 sq miles), consists of undulating country
intersected by chains of hills rising to about 600m (2000ft), merging into the Mato Grosso Plateau in the north; the Paran?crosses the area in the east and south. East and southeast of Asunci? lie the oldest centres of settlement inhabited by the
greater part of the population. This area is bordered to the west by rolling pastures, and to the south by thick primeval forests.
The Occidental zone, or Paraguayan Chaco, covers 246,827 sq km (95,300 sq miles). It is a flat alluvial plain, composed
mainly of grey clay, which is marked by large areas of permanent swamp in the southern and eastern regions. Apart from a few
small settlements, it is sparsely populated.
