Costa Rica

The Republic of Costa Rica is a republic of Central America. Remarkably for the region, Costa Rica has stood as a bastion of stability and democracy since the minor civil war of the late 1940s that brought President José Figueres Ferrer to power. In fact, Costa Rica has no military, only a domestic police force (albeit a heavily armed one). The capital is San José.
