"El distrito Federado de" means "The Federate District of" and in Mexico they use this term to identify the different parts of this country.
People from México D.F. don't even call themselves "Méxicanos,"
They also don't call México D.F, "la cuidad de México," or "el distrito Federal de México," but plain "De Efe." I know some "Chilangos,"
that's why I know this, lol.
