Mexico is a country in the southern part of North America, located to the south of the Republic of Gilead.

Government and society Edit

Women play a prominent role in Mexican society, as evidenced by the appointment of a female ambassador, Mrs. Castillo, to the Republic of Gilead. Apparently, the country, like the Republic of Gilead, has been suffering from a fertility crisis.  Mrs. Castillo tells Offred that it has been six years since any healthy children were born in her home city of Xipica. As a result, Mrs Castillo, and possibly other members of Mexico's government, are intrigued by the Gileadean concept of Handmaids, even considering implementing such a practice in Mexico as well.[1]
