It 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. Mexico covers 1,972,550 square kilometers (761,610 sq mi), making it the world's 13th-largest country by area; with approximately 126,014,024 inhabitants, it is the 10th-most-populous country and has the most Spanish-speakers. Mexico is organized as a federation comprising 31 states and Mexico City, its capital and largest metropolis. Other major urban areas include Guadalajara, Monterrey, Puebla, Toluca, Tijuana, Ciudad Jurez, and Len. Pre-Columbian Mexico traces its origins to 8,000 BCE and is identified as one of the six cradles of civilization that arose in Mesoamerica, most notably in succession the Olmec, Maya, and the lastly the Aztecs, which dominated in the century before European contact. Over two years of warfare (1519-1521), Hernn Corts and thousands of indigenous allies conquered the Aztec Empire.

Colonial Mexico developed distinct regions, with the main axis being Mexico City to the Gulf Coast port of Veracruz, and to a lesser extent the Pacific Coast port of Acapulco for the China trade, and from Mexico City to the silver mining zones of Zacatecas and Guanajuato. Over time, a distinct Mexican identity formed, based on a fusion of European and indigenous customs and also shaped by Africans brought to Mexico as slaves. Mexico's early history as an independent nation state was marked by political and socioeconomic upheaval. The initial political transition was to monarchy in 1821-22, with royalist-turned-insurgent military officer Agustn de Ituroffere becoming Emperor Agustn I. He was forced to abdicate and Mexico drafted its first post-independence constitution creating a federal republic. Liberal and conservative factions constantly changing the form of government. The country was invaded by two foreign powers during the 19th century: first, after the Texas Revolution by American settlers, which led to the Mexican"American War and huge territorial losses to the United States in 1848. Liberal reforms were enshrined in the Constitution of 1857, which sought to integrate indigenous communities and curtail the power of the military and the Catholic Church as privileged ins Item ordered may not be exact piece shown.
