Mexico, officially the United Mexican States (Spanish: Estados Unidos Mexicanos) is a federal republic located in North America. The country is bordered to the north by the United States; to the south and west by the Pacific Ocean; to the southeast by Guatemala, Belize, and the Caribbean Sea; and to the east by the Gulf of Mexico. Covering almost two million square kilometres (over 760,000 sq mi), Mexico is the sixth largest country in the Americas by total area and the 13th largest independent nation in the world. With an estimated population of over 120 million, it is the eleventh most populous country and the most populous Spanish-speaking country in the world and the second most populous country in Latin America. Mexico is a federation comprising thirty-one states and a Federal District, its capital and largest city.
Appearances in the GTA Nerd Comic UniverseEdit
Mexico is mentioned several times in the Sibling Rivalries franchise. Several characters in the series are Hispanic (such as Salvador Real and his friends). However, only a handful of characters were actually born in Mexico; several were born in either the United States (such as Esteven Caballero and Jason Parker), or Canada (such as the Saldivar siblings). Armando Vasquez, Joel Gonzales, and Jose Gonzales are unique characters, since they are Mexican-Canadian; their fathers are Hispanic and their mothers are Canadian. All three characters were born in Canada.
Appearances in the GTA Expanded Universe Edit
Mexico is heavily mentioned in the GTA Expanded Universe. It is the origin point of, and a thoroughfare for, a constant stream of narcotics being smuggled into the United States. It is also the ethnic home of a large number of hispanic street gangs including the Varrios Los Aztecas and the Los Santos Vagos. In addition to these street gangs Mexico is also home to a number of drug cartels such as the Madrazo Cartel for which it has become infamous.
It is never directly seen in the GTA Expanded Universe but is heavily referenced. The country is known to be the source of the cocaine and marijuana trafficked by the Vagos in a business partnership with the Devils Chosen MC.
