Mexico is a country in North America, south of the US and north of Guatemala and Belize and west of Cuba. Various gangs, especially in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, have their origins from Mexico. Mexico is referenced in various games.
In Mexico, Grand Theft Auto games are not edited and are generally released in that country without controversy. Technically, the ESRB is recognised in the country, but their decisions are not legally enforced. Grand Theft Auto games in Mexico are usually released the same day as in the United States.
