Mexico, officially the United Mexican States, is a federal constitutional republic in North America. It is bordered on the north by the United States of America; on the south and west by the Pacific ocean; on the southeast by Guatemala, Belize, and the Caribbean sea; and on the east by the Gulf of Mexico. Covering almost two million square kilometres (over 760,000 sq mi), Mexico is the fifth largest country in the americas by total area and the thirteenth largest independent nation in the world. With an estimated population of over 113 million, it is the world’s eleventh most populous country and the most populous spanish-speaking country. Mexico is a federation comprising thirty-one states and a federal district, the capital city.
In pre-Columbian Mexico many cultures matured into advanced civilizations such as the Olmec, the Toltec, the Teotihuacan, the Zapotec, the Maya and the Aztec before first contact with europeans. In 1521, Spain conquered and colonized the territory from its base in Mexico-Tenochtitlan, which was administered as the viceroyalty of new Spain.
Mexico has one of the world’s largest economies, and is considered both a regional power and middle power. In addition, Mexico was the first Latin American member of the organisation for economic co-operation and development OECD (since 1994), and considered an upper-middle income country by the world bank. Mexico is considered a newly industrialized country and an emerging power. It has the thirteenth largest nominal GDP and the eleventh largest gdp by purchasing power parity. The economy is strongly linked to those of its North American free trade agreement (nafta) partners, especially the United States. Mexico ranks sixth in the world and first in the Americas by number of UNESCO world heritage sites with 31 and in 2007 was the tenth most visited country in the world with 21.4 million international arrivals per year.
