  • The Federal Republic of Central America (1823-1841) is available to Mexico because Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua and Costa Rica were part of the first Mexican Empire (1821-1823) under the rule of Agustin de Iturbide, and then at the dissolution, they created their own federation.
  • Chiapas formed part of the Republic of Central America, but returned later to the Mexican federation.
  • While the Federal Republic was dissolved, the countries of the region formed a military coalition to defeat an invasion in 1856-1857 by William Walker, the leader of the other revolution option in the Commerce Age.
