No one knows. That's the mystery.
"His secret country of origin is one of the longest running gags on the show. In one episode, he revealed it was an island but was interrupted before he could say the name of the island. In another episode, he spoke a line (the "I said good day" catch phrase) in his native language. He once said he had "Latin pride," which led Red to believe he was Latino. Fez retorted "No, only my pride is, and I have a Swiss sense of frugality." He once said that he could speak Dutch in a job interview. "Mukatot" is his language's word for foot, as revealed in "The Pill".
Fez has also been shown to speak Spanish in an episode when he sang a Spanish love song, Besame Mucho, to Jackie; he also said it was the lyrics to his school song. Fez once claimed his country has never fought a war. In another episode, however, he alludes to the fact that his country "won the war" against Britain. He once said that his forefathers were not Mayan. He once stated that his country has "more lizards than people." In episode 110, Hot Dog, Fez remarked that his people "eat bugs." He has also referred to having a sister who lives in the jungle 10,000 miles from Wisconsin in "Surprise, Surprise". In one episode, when the gang was playing in his room (which looked like a room for a little kid) Jackie and Hyde were playing with a couple of large stuffed pandas, to which Fez responded that the black and white one was a present from his cousin who lives in Hong Kong. During a ski trip with friends, he marvels at the sight of snow, claiming he had never seen any before then. In another instance, a friend from his home country visits, and has a heavy English accent. Fez's explanation to this is that his friend is from the west side of the island. Another episode had Fez pointing out his island on a wall map. However, the audience's view was blocked by someone's head. After Eric offers him a chance to attend a Styx concert with him, Fez states that "Where I come from we have a saying, 'Ugh, Styx.'"
Fez stated in one episode that he is from the opposite side of the world. In the season 8 episode Leaving Home Ain't Easy, he said that his harsh words towards Jackie were the result of his "Jamaican fire," only to clarify to Hyde that "Jamaican Fire" was the cologne he was wearing. In episode 199, "Love of My Life," Fez states he is going back to Brazil, but then adds that he is only going there to take a plane to his country. At the end of that episode, Fez says that his country's origin "depended on whether you ask the British or the Dutch." The British hated them and would not answer such a question, and nobody could understand the Dutch's answer. Also in season 4 episode 7 he designs a new uniform as a Photohut employee however he wrote Photo in Dutch (Foto)".
