    ...follow the rules set by the Mexican government, even though they were not Mexican.

    The group of people who settled in the land called Texas agreed to follow the rules set by the Mexican government, even though they were not Mexican.

    Should there be a comma after "government"? If it is needed, could you let me know why.

    Thanks.

    The comma makes a natural pause.
    “Every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud, adopts as a last resource pride in the nation to which he belongs; he is ready and happy to defend all its faults and follies tooth and nail, thus reimbursing himself for his own inferiority.”

    — Arthur Schopenhauer
