It covers an area of approximately 761,610 square miles (1.97 million km2) and is the third-largest country in Latin America after Brazil and Argentina. Mexico’s diverse landscape ranges from snow-capped mountains and deserts to tropical rainforests and white-sand beaches.

Blank Map of Mexico with States
The United Mexican States is a federal republic made up of 32 federal entities, which include 31 states and the national capital, Mexico City. Each state has its constitution and congress, which operate independently. This means that each state has the power to govern its own internal affairs within the limits set by the federal constitution.
The legislative branch of each state government is made up of a unicameral congress responsible for passing laws and regulations specific to each state. The executive branch is led by a governor, elected through universal suffrage, and serves as the head of the state government. The Superior Court of Justice represents the judicial branch, which is responsible for interpreting and enforcing state laws.
In the Congress of the Union, each state is represented by three senators. Two of these senators are elected by a relative majority, and one is assigned to the party with the most significant minority. In addition to these 96 senators, 32 additional senators are elected through proportional representation. The federal Deputies, on the other hand, represent citizens rather than states.
The above map includes the 32 states and the inner borders of the country. This map is great for memorizing the names and locations of every Mexican state and for other study purposes.
Blank Map of Mexico with Capitals

While it is not technically a state, it has its own government. It is considered a separate entity with the same level of autonomy as Mexico’s other 31 federal entities.

Where is Mexico on the World Map?

Mexico has four standard time zones that mirror the time zones in the United States. However, there are only three principal time zones that are used year-round. The fourth had to do with daylight savings time. Officially, in 2022, Mexico abolished the concept of Daylight savings time. This means that, in effect, they eliminated one time zone.
