Tell me something random about your country

Tell me something random about your country. It can be anything. As long as it is something related to your country, share what ever you want to talk about.
Culture, food, music, dance, folklore, attire, ethnicities, flora, fauna, natural scenery, cities, you get the idea.

Bonus points if it is something most people don't know about.

The official name of Mexico is "Estados Unidos Mexicanos (United Mexican States)".

Our country is divided in 32 "federal entities", 31 states and one Federal District (but since the 1990's a lot of power has been given back to the Federal District, especially after a new constitution for them took effect in 2016, so nowadays the Federal District is pretty much a state in all but name)
So, furthermore, we have a state literally called "México (Mexico)" but everybody calls it "Estado de México (State of Mexico)", and to make matters worse the "Federal District" is called "Ciudad de México" (Mexico City).

the Mayans were one of the few civilizations in the world that invented writing independently, the others were the Sumerians (cuneiform), the Chinese (logographic Chinese characters), and the Egyptians (Egyptian Hieroglyphics; although some historians say that they copied a lot from the Sumerians and therefore should be considered a semi-independent invention, similar to the Ge'ez script).

All scripts currently in use descent from either the Sumerian Cuneiform writing system or the Chinese logographic writing system or were influenced by them (like Hangeul or the Canadian Aboriginal syllabics)

I only mentioned those 3 (4) because most recent linguistic and anthropologic evidence suggest that the writing system used in the Indus Valley Civilization is a Proto-Writing system not fully developed (like the Aztec writing system or the Olmec one)

Yes, actually, Mexico, the state of Mexico, Mexico City and New Mexico are named after the "Mexicas" (nowadays commonly called "Aztecs")

There is an old law that is still valid today that stipulates that the seventh child of a family has the right to be sponsored by the president and have economic help from the government, This is because in the 1800s rural people used to sacrifice the 7th children because it was believed that these would become werewolves, so the government decided to protect those children.

According to Wikipedia, the Russians did this and when some of them immigrated to Argentina, asked the President to implement that law too.

Public indecency is illegal but an act of running naked from one place to another in a hasty manner is not.

We also have a nude marathon held during the summer.

2000 Australians colonized a small area of Paraguay in 1893 and tried what is the first known instance of a communist society. Unsurpringly, it failed after 2 years but the remnants of "nueva australia" still remain to this day.
