As the US's most complicated neighbor, Mexico
has a lot of factors working for it, and against

it.
With a strong national culture and positive
international relations marred by expanding

cartel violence, we wanted to know.
Just how powerful is Mexico?
Well, geographically, Mexico is fairly large.
At roughly 750 thousand square miles, or about
a quarter the size of the contiguous United

States, Mexico is the 14th largest country
in the world.

Mexico is also home to over 120 million residents,
making it the most populous Spanish speaking

country.
Mexico also has one of the world's top economies,
with a GDP of about 1 and a quarter trillion.

Although that's actually still a few hundred
billion dollars smaller than the GDP of Texas.

Mexico's high yield economy is largely the
product of their strong trade ties through

the North American Free Trade Agreement.
In fact, trade with the US and Canada accounts
for nearly half of all Mexican imports and

exports.
Additionally, as the world's top producers
of electronics, automobiles, silver, and oil,

Goldman Sachs has predicted that by 2050,
Mexico will be the world's fifth largest

economy.
However, in comparison, Mexico's military
is relatively unimpressive.

Stacked against the world's armies, Mexico
ranks 31st, about on par with South Africa.

This is partially due to the fact that Mexico
has historically only spent about half a percent

of their GDP on their armed forces.
By comparison, the US spends closer to four
percent.

And although Mexico isn't really in a position
to be invaded, their military and police forces

have been overwhelmed by the country's hyper-violent
drug war, during which over 60,000 have died,

and another 20,000 have gone missing.
On top of their drug problem, Mexico also
suffers from relatively high infant mortality,

and a comparatively low literacy rate.
Sources have pointed to the fact that roughly
half of Mexico's population lives below

the poverty line, a statistic that's been
unchanged for the past thirty years, despite

significant economic growth.
Overall, Mexico is an important manufacturing
ally with a rich history and strong economy.

However, a more realistic view of the country
would paint it as an impoverished war-zone

heavily reliant on it's very powerful neighbors.
So how powerful is Mexico?
The truth might lie somewhere in the middle.
