Paraguay is one of the few countries in South America that have no direct access to the sea. The relatively poor country was ruled for many years by the dictator Don Alfredo Stroessner, who was of German descent. In South America today, the state is known mainly for its huge electricity-production operation at the Itaipu Dam on the border with Brazil.
