New Mexico is located in the Mountain Region of the United States and is nicknamed the Land of Enchantment. It has a quite interesting motto: Crescit eundo, which means it grows as it goes. It is ranked 5th in the United States with a land area of 121,589 square miles. New Mexico was the 47th state to be admitted to the Union on January 6, 1912 and borders four states: Texas, Oklahoma, Arizona and Colorado. It also makes up one of the Four Corner States.
The capital of New Mexico is Santa Fe while its largest city and metropolitan area is Albuquerque. Out of all the United States, New Mexico has the highest Hispanic population at an estimated 46 percent as of the last United States Census count in 2010. This Hispanic population is made up largely of the descendants of Spanish colonists as well as immigrants from Latin American countries. There is also a large presence of Native Americans made up mostly of Navajo and Pueblo people. So obviously, the culture of New Mexico is strongly influenced by its Native American and Hispanic inhabitants.
There are no professional sports franchises in New Mexico, however, several minor league and several collegiate teams represent the state.
