The Mexican United States or just the state of Mexico in the north borders with the USA, in the southeast it has borders with Belize and Guatemala. In the west, the country is washed by the waters of the Gulf of California and the Pacific Ocean, and in the east by the waters of the Caribbean and the Gulf of Mexico.
The purposeful exploration and conquest of Mexico by Europeans began in 1517 when the Spaniards sent three expeditions to the shores of the Gulf of Mexico. In 1522, the Spanish emperor Charles V approved Hernan Cortes as captain-general and governor of the conquered lands, transferring to his possession lands with 100,000 Indians living on them.
Thus, from 1521 to 1821, Mexico was a colony of Spain. The economy of the country was based on the exploitation of Indians forced to work on the lands and mines taken from them. The economy of New Spain was subordinated to the interests of the mother country. The main industry in Mexico was the mining of precious metals.
