Lying between the Pacific Ocean, the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean Sea, the Latin American nation borders the United States of America, Guatemala and Belize. Mexico is a representative democratic republic, with a President acting as both chief of government and head of government, alongside a bicameral Congress and an extensive federal system. Current severe human rights concerns include abuses committed by law enforcement personnel, criminal activities carried out by drug cartels and criminal gangs, discrimination against indigenous people, violence against women and girls, and widespread sexual and economic exploitation.
