Hearts of Iron 3: First day impressions.

This is going to be very quick.
 
WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON?! WHY CAN'T I JUST GO ROGUE NATION AND ATTACK DIFFERENT COUNTRIES?! WHY IS THE TUTORIAL NARRATED BY ADOLF HITLER?! 
 
Ok I can't say I wasn't warned that this game was worse than hearts of iron 2. Infact everything I've read has said that If I was going to get a hearts of iron game it had to be 2 because 3 was a broken mess. Then I heard that they released a paid patch for 3 in the form of the expansion pack semper fi. Since the steam sale was going on I figured I would get 3 and semper fi as a way to get into hearts of iron, since I still find the concept of the game intriguing (civilization, but in real time).
 
Now this may be odd, but the very first thing I did when I fired the game up was select mexico and try to develop a rogue nation that would go on a rampage attacking south america. Hell if they let you do that, why wouldn't you do that? Well apparently the developers of the game didn't appreciate the freedom they gave me to play the game since I can't do jack shit as mexico.
 
I tried to build up a fierce force to attack guatemala and make it a part of my mexican empire, but apparently I'm neutral. WHAT THE ****?! Don't tease me some sweet 4X poon-tang only to take it away from me at the moment I want to have fun! And since this game is considered by many hearts of iron fans to be terrible, I have no idea how to lower my neutrality with out opening a command console. 
 
So yeah, ultimately I have no idea what's going on in this game, and can't find anyone who has any idea on what's going on in this game. If you know any tips on how to help me out, please tell me. The tutorial was narrated by adolf hitler and I was so perplexed by the concept of one of the most evil men in history giving me a tutorial that I didn't pay attention to what he was telling me.
