If one wants to pursue the "geographic region" line of reasoning then
we have to note that Mexico, although located in North America, is a
member of LACNIC.

All these constructs are messy, though not overly so -- is the problem
ARIN v. LACNIC, or Latin America v. North America?

But it's still accurate that the five RIRs are defined as a collection
of specific nation-states (a few exceptions, mostly territories etc)
roughly within five geographic loci.
