With a total landmass of almost two million square kilometers, Mexico is slightly less than three times the size of Texas and has a total population of over 106 million people. Its political organization is a federal republic with 31 states and a federal district. The president is elected by popular vote for a six-year term and cannot be reelected. The Mexican legal system is a mixture of U.S. constitutional theory and a civil law system with a judicial review of legislative acts.
Mexico has a free market economy that recently entered the trillion-dollar class. It contains a mixture of modern and outmoded industry and agriculture, increasingly dominated by the private sector. Recent administrations have expanded competition in seaports, railroads, telecommunications, electricity generation, natural gas distribution and airports.
