The Baja Annexation was the 2044 annexation of the entire Baja peninsula and the Baja, Mexico state into the United States of America. It was admitted to the Union as the 53th state on May 5, 2044.

Baja, USA, formerly a state of Mexico, was purchased by the Sinclare MEGAcorp. The deal was planned and implemented in secrecy between the Sinclare Mc and Mexico . The United States government had no involvement until after dealings were finalized. The former state of Mexico could have remained a part of Mexico as the Corporate Expansion Act of 2033 has provisions that allow MEGAcorps to extend across international boundaries.

After being acquired by the Sinclare Mc, the population of Baja heavily favored becoming part of the United States due to the dire economics prevalent throughout Mexico at that time. US citizens and the United States government were not initially convinced it would be in the best interests of the nation.

After several years of debate and many unsuccessful attempts to pass a bill in the Congress and Senate, it was finally passed and signed by the President on May 1, 2044. The national governing body of Mexico and the state government of Baja accepted the offer within days. Baja formally joined the Union on May 5, 2044, the same day it was admitted.

It is without contention that scholars agree the annexation could not have taken place if not for the existence of MEGAcorps. The question about Carribia and Pacifica becoming states in the absence of MEGAcorps is still debated (please see main articles on Carribia and Pacifica for additional information on this subject).
