Jalisco and Nayarit decide to merge and become Nalisco

The Mexican states of Jalisco and Nayarit have announced their decision to merge and create a new entity called “Nalisco”. This groundbreaking move comes after months of negotiations and collaboration between the two states, aiming to strengthen their cultural, economic, and political ties.

The decision to unite these neighboring states has been met with both excitement and curiosity. Residents of Jalisco and Nayarit are looking forward to the potential benefits that may arise from this merger, including enhanced infrastructure, improved economic opportunities, and a more unified regional identity.


Jalisco, known for its vibrant traditions, historical landmarks, and tequila production, will now join forces with Nayarit, celebrated for its beautiful beaches, diverse ecosystems, and rich cultural heritage. Together, these states will create a powerhouse region that combines the best of both worlds.

The capital of Nalisco will be a newly developed city that will serve as a symbol of unity for the merged states. The discussion is on whether the new city will be called Guadalapic or Tepilajara, other options are Puerto Nayarit or Nuevo Vallarta. Plans for the city include state-of-the-art infrastructure, cultural centers, and a blend of architectural styles that represent the unique characteristics of Jalisco and Nayarit.

Better and diversified economy for Nalisco

Economically, the merger is anticipated to create a more robust and diversified economy for Nalisco. By combining their strengths, the states hope to attract more investments, boost tourism, and stimulate job growth. The newly formed state aims to be a model of collaboration and progress for other regions in Mexico.

While the announcement has taken many by surprise, both states assure their residents that the merger will be a seamless process, with minimal disruptions to daily life. Transition teams are already hard at work outlining plans for the integration of government services, education systems, and other essential functions.

As news of the merger spreads, social media has been abuzz with discussions about the potential impact on local traditions, cuisine, and festivals. Nalisco will celebrate a unique blend of cultural elements from both Jalisco and Nayarit, creating a fusion that reflects the diversity of the region.

According to Enrique Alfaro and Miguel Ángel Navarro, current state co-governors, the plan is to expand in the next years to create the Western Mexican Republic, including other states such as Sinaloa, Sonora and Baja California.

However, before you start updating your maps and travel plans, it’s important to note that this announcement is not what it seems. In the spirit of “Día de los Inocentes” (April Fools’ Day in Mexico), we must reveal that the creation of Nalisco is nothing more than a playful prank. While the idea of these two states merging may have sparked your imagination, rest assured that Jalisco and Nayarit remain distinct entities with their own rich histories and identities.

So, happy Día de los Inocentes, and don’t forget to share a laugh with your friends about the imaginary creation of Nalisco!
