As of today, registration/renewal is 200,000 Guarani = $32.71 at interbank 

Foreign entities (but perhaps not individuals) can apply via a local 
representative or at least a local billing agent (such as on NIC_PY's ISP 
list) .  I have the impression (but am not sure) that names would actually 
be website.com.py (or .org.py for a nonprofit).  Names can be rejected for 
reasons like belonging to someone else.  A DNS (or DNSes) must be specified 
to indicate intention to use the name rather than just 'park' it.  A 
justification more specific than 'website' must be included and will be 
read and judged.

Inquiries can be sent to dnsadmin at nic.py .  I don't know how they would 
respond to the idea of punning .py.
