How are Canada and the United States similar

They are similar because they are both very big countries, and have great air and nature, tourist attractions, beautiful scenery, lots of tourist attractions and landscape.

How are the United States and Mexico similar

First, the common traits. Mexico and the United States are both North American nations, neighboring each other. Both are also trade and business partners belonging to the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and have a pretty large and complex history including conflicts such as the Texas Revolution (1835-1836) or the Mexican-American War (1846-1848) as well as diplomatic and military cooperation including the diplomatic support provided by the United States to Mexico during the Second Franco-Mexican War (1861-1867) or the Escuadron 201 air squad provided by Mexico during World War 2 (1939-1945). The Southwestern population of the United States has more affinity to Mexico, as California, Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas used to belong to Mexico and many Mexican immigrants have arrived to these lands for the last 60 years.

Now, on the differences. Mexico is a Latin American nation with a large Spanish-speaking, Roman Catholic population (Roman Catholic: 88%, Protestant: 5.2%) while the US is an Anglo American country with a majority of English-speaking population and a dominance of Protestantism (Protestant: 52%, Roman Catholic 24%). The ethnic make up of Mexico is predominantly of mestizo (60%) and Amerindian people (30%) while Americans are predominantly European (52%) and on a lesser degree, African (13%), Asian (5%), and Hispanic people of many ethnicities (15%). Both the US and Mexico are federal presidential republics, but Mexico has 31 independent states and one federal district while America has 50 states and one such federal district. Finally, the United States has the largest economy of any nation in the world, while Mexico is an emerging market which ranks as the 11th largest economy.

Finally, some statistics:

  • Population (2012):
    • Mexico - 114,975,406
    • United States - 313,847,465
  • Land area:
    • Mexico - 1,964,375 sq km (758,449 sq mi)
    • United States - 9,826,675 sq km (3,794,101 sq mi)
  • Gross Domestic Product (2011):
    • Mexico - USD$1,135 billion
    • United States - USD$14,083 billion
  • GDP Per Capita (2011):
    • Mexico - USD$10,146
    • United States - USD$48,328
  • Median Age (2012):
    • Mexico - 28.5 years
    • United States - 37.1 years
