    Most of Mexico isn't run from Mexico City. XD

    They do make the attempt, don't they? Are you saying that significant parts of Mexico are anarchist?

    No. I'm saying significant parts of Mexico are effectively out of control of the Mexican federal government, and in the control of Mexican drug cartels and local strongmen.

    I'm afraid that the same will be true for some of the southwestern US, in a few decades' time.

    Oh, I see. Well, that is pretty likely if we don't change directions in the war on drugs.

    I think he meant to say el Distrito Federal. Mexico City is just a city.

    No, I really think he meant that most of the country is not under the control of the federal government of Mexico.

    Exactly and el Distrito Federal is where the government is run from, kinda like Washington D.C.

    Mexico City is a city in the state of Mexico

    Wait, I thought Mexico City WAS the federal district and is not part of any state and serves as the seat of the federal government of the United Mexican States...

    El Distrito Federal is it's own city, the most populated city at that.

    Mexico City is in el Estado De Mexico, not the same place. Different license plates too on the cars.
