It is bordered to the north by the United States; to the south and west by the Pacific Ocean; to the southeast by Guatemala, Belize, and the Caribbean Sea; and to the east by the Gulf of Mexico. Mexico covers 1,972,550 square kilometers (761,610 sq mi), making it the world's 13th-largest country by area; with approximately 126,014,024 inhabitants, it is the 10th-most-populous country and has the most Spanish-speakers. Mexico is organized as a federation comprising 31 states and Mexico City, its capital and largest metropolis. Other major urban areas include Guadalajara, Monterrey, Puebla, Toluca, Tijuana, Ciudad Juárez, and León. Pre-Columbian Mexico traces its origins to 8,000 BCE and is identified as one of the six cradles of civilization that arose in Mesoamerica, most notably in succession the Olmec, Maya, and the lastly the Aztecs, which dominated in the century before European contact. Over two years of warfare (1519-1521), Hernán Cortés and thousands of indigenous allies conquered the Aztec Empire.

Cortés founded Mexico City on the ruins of the Aztec capital of Tenochtitlan, establishing the Kingdom of New Spain within the Spanish Empire. The Catholic Church under the patronage of the Spanish monarch embarked upon conversion of the indigenous populations to Christianity, in the "spiritual conquest of Mexico." The mid-1500s discoveries of large deposits of silver outside the zone of settled indigenous populations led to Spanish territorial expansion northward. More importantly, silver became the motor of not only the Mexican economy, but also Spain's, Europe's and the world's. The massive influx of wealth brought about a price revolution in Western Europe and also had an impact on China. Colonial Mexico developed distinct regions, with the main axis being Mexico City to the Gulf Coast port of Veracruz, and to a lesser extent the Pacific Coast port of Acapulco for the China trade, and from Mexico City to the silver mining zones of Zacatecas and Guanajuato.

A bond is a document of title for a loan. Bonds are issued, not only by businesses, but also by national, state or city governments, or other public bodies, or sometimes by individuals. Bonds are a loan to the company or other body. They are normally repayable within a stated period of time. Bonds earn interest at a fixed rate, which must usually be paid by the undertaking regardless of its financial results. A bondholder is a creditor of the undertaking.
