Mexico was a country in North America before the Great War, located to the south of the United States. While it was never annexed as Canada was, the US, seeking to protect business interests and their oil supply, put a lot of pressure on Mexico in 2051 and finally invaded it, though it is unknown whether total annexation had occurred.

The Fallout: New Vegas companion Raul Tejada was born in Mexico, witnessed the Great War destroy Mexico City, and lived on ranch.[1] A small group of Mexicans also made their way into Zion Canyon in Utah, but were savagely murdered by the infected members of the Vault 22 expedition.

The country also had a major company named Petro-Chico, a petroleum corporation that was a subsidiary of Poseidon Energy, and had oil supplies all along the Rio Grande, and owned all of the oil flowing up to Las Vegas. Petro-Chico had administrative holdings in the states of Veracruz, Puebla, and Hidalgo.
