    "It's the one fact about Mexico that you probably didn't know. The country's name is not really Mexico, at least not officially. After gaining independence from Spain in 1821, Mexico officially became the "Mexican United States....outgoing Mexican President Felipe Calderon on Thursday sent to the Mexican Congress a piece of legislation to change the country's name officially to simply Mexico."

    That's bullshit. The official name is "The United Mexican States."

    They are united and have been since at least 1821.

    Got a problem with that?

    Can you really blame them for not wanting anyone to mistakenly affiliate their fine, upstanding country with ours?
