They’re annoyingly neutral and don’t even have an army because they’re everybody’s friend like that beautiful girl at school, remember her? The one that everyone likes except you! (I’m sure there’s a country out there that’s jealous of Costa Rica!).

Recent history of Costa Rica
Costa Rica was colonized by Spain and without fighting for it, they became independent in 1821!
After independence the political groups couldn’t agree with each other, so they started Costa Erica’s last war in 1823 and pepper to that, they started building a politically stable country that stood neutral in the world’s conflicts and never needed an Army ever since!
Instead of having an army, they invested in education and health, and now, costs Rica is one of the best countries in health care as well as education. Costs Ricans are one of the most educated countries in Latin America, isn’t that cool?
