As of 2009 the population was estimated at 6.3 million. The capital and largest city is Asunción. The official languages are Spanish and Guaraní (Paraguayan Guaraní), both being widely spoken in the country, with around 92% of the general population speaking Spanish and 98% speaking Guaraní. Most of the population are mestizos. Paraguay's population is distributed unevenly through the country. About 56% of Paraguayans live in urban areas. The vast majority of the people live in the eastern region near the capital and largest city, Asunción, accounting for 10% of the country's population. The Gran Chaco region, which includes the Alto Paraguay (Alto Paraguay Department), Boquerón (Boquerón Department) and Presidente Hayes Department, and accounts for about 60% of the territory, is home to less than 2% of the population. García's group discovered Iguazú Falls, crossed the Río Paraná and arrived at the site of Asunción, future capital of the country, thirteen years before it was founded. Next, they attempted to cross the Gran Chaco, eventually penetrating the outer defenses of the Inca Empire. After García's murder by his Indian allies news of the raid reached the Spanish explorers on the coast and attracted Sebastian Cabot (Sebastian Cabot (explorer)) to the Río Paraguay two years later. After Mendoza returned unexpectedly to Spain, two other members of the expedition--Juan de Salazar de Espinosa and Gonzalo de Mendoza--explored the Río Paraguay and met up with Irala.

Within 20 years, the settlement had a population of about 1,500. Transcontinental shipments of silver passed through Asunción on their way from Peru to Europe. Asunción subsequently became the nucleus of a Spanish province that encompassed a large portion of southern South America — so large, in fact, that it was dubbed "La Provincia Gigante de Indias". Asunción also was the base from which this part of South America was colonized. Spaniards moved northwestward across the Chaco to found Santa Cruz (Santa Cruz de la Sierra) in Bolivia; eastward to occupy the rest of present-day Paraguay; and southward along the river to refound Buenos Aires, which its defenders had abandoned in 1541 to move to Asunción. The Northern Upland, the Central Hill Belt, and the Central Lowland constitute the lower terrain lying between the escarpment and the Río Paraguay. The first of these eroded extensions stretching westward of the Paraná Plateau—the Northern Upland—occupies the portion northward from the Aquidabán River (''Río Aquidabán'') to the Apa River on the Brazilian border.
