Executive power is exercised solely by the President. Legislative power is vested in the two chambers of the National Congress. The Judiciary power is vested on Tribunals and Courts of Civil Laws.
The history of Paraguay is poorly documented. The first Spaniards settled in the area in the 16th century. Following the Spanish colonization, a mixed (mestizo) population developed, which spoke the language of their indigenous ancestors' Spanish culture. Paraguay declared its independence from Spain in 1811. The country has had a history of dictatorial governments, from José Gaspar Rodríguez de Francia to Francisco Solano López, who nearly corrupted the country in warfare. Paraguay went to war again, this time with Bolivia. From 1932 to 1935, Paraguayans and Bolivians died in fighting over possession of the Chaco region. Paraguay was ruled by 44 different men, 24 of whom were forced from office.
