State that lies between Texas and Arizona, largly unknown to most citizens of the United States except for residents, the government, the military, conspiracy theorists, and some artsy folks. Best known for its nukes, Roswell, Santa Fe, chile, its perpetually sunny weather, and desert environment and landscape.
Currently and historically, New Mexico is home to a lot of top secret scientific research. Because of this, New Mexico would have the third largest nuclear arsenal in the world if it split from the US. But realistically such a thing would never happen. New Mexico also has a huge hole in the ground called WIPP for storing nuclear waste.
The state has a large Hispanic population, most of whom don't know or refuse to speak Spanish. The state also has a large Native American population, most of whom belong to several Pueblo tribes. There are also many Caucasians, mostly of Germanic descent.
Although most Americans are ignorant about New Mexico, it has played an important role in history. It was the first region of what is now the US to be settled, it was the site of the first successful Indian Revolt, it kept the Civil War from spreading west by preventing Texas and the South from taking over Mexico and California, it was the site of the first nuclear weapons test, and, well, Roswell, if you believe anything happened there.
The ups to living in New Mexico are the constant sunshine, the relaxed mood, the low cost of living, and plenty of government money and employment. New Mexico is also pretty safe from earthquakes and tornadoes. The downs are the droughts, hoodlums-scavs-chavs-ghettodwellerwannabes, and an occasional wildfire if you are foolish and/or rich enough to build a house in or near a forest.
New Mexico: The Land Of Enchantment
There's no comparison between New Mexican chile and Texan chili. Chile kicks chili's ass and is way hotter.
New Mexico sucks.

Jul 24 Word of the Day
It’s an acronym standing for Can’t Remember A Fucking Thing. It’s usually used to describe embarrassment at being unable to remember someone (CRAFT moment); going onstage as the lead in the latest theatrical performance and your mind goes completely blank (CRAFT situation); the next morning after a night when you got pissed as a fart and woke up in bed cuddling a traffic cone and a string of fairy lights wound round your prick.
“Where did you go after we left the pub?”
Dunno, CRAFT.”

A Spanish radio station, one car traveling down the opposite end of the highway, one train, and a McDonald's in Lordsburg serving only Egg McMuffins at 3pm with a U.S. flag flying at half-mast.

A very beautiful state in the USA located north of Mexico, south of Colorado, east of Arizona, and west of Texas. It's capital is Santa Fe, and it's largest city is Albuquerque. New Mexico has a very rich history. The majority of people who live there are Spanish, Mexican, Native American, or white. Spanish is commonly spoke there. Also an attraction for hippies, artists, and rich people. New Mexico stands out with very distinct political and cultural ideals from the rest of the United States. New Mexico is also known for Los Alamos National Lab, which has caused a great amount of pollution and is not supported by most New Mexico residents.
New Mexico has a specific type of red and green chiles which do not grow anywhere else in the world. They are used in almost every restaurant in the state. If you order a dish you will most likely be asked "Would you like red or green chile on that?"
Red Chile is more earthy and robust, while green chile is more fruity and usually more spicy. You can also ask for 'Christmas' which means both.
New Mexico is a desert region.
