Mexico, also known as the United Mexican States and formerly known as New Spain, is a country in southern North America. It is bordered by the United States in the north and by Guatemala and Belize in the southeast.[1]


Until declaring its independence in 1821, Mexico was a colonial territory of Spain, and was officially known by the name New Spain.[2] At the height of Spanish imperial power, New Spain occupied most of the North American continent south of Canada, including what later became the part of the United States west of the Mississippi River and Central America (with the exception of Panama).[2]

The Mexican National Quidditch team made it to the final of the Quidditch World Cup in 1809.[3] They were winning when Niko Nenad, a Beater for the opposing Romanian team, purposefully hit a Bludger into the nearby forest. The trees, which Nenad had jinxed earlier, sprang to life and attacked the stadium, causing several injuries and deaths.[3]
