The Ticos, as they are often called, have been a democratic country for more than 100 years. It is one of the most solid democracies in America and during all these years they have maintained a pacifist spirit.
Another highlight is that since 1948 under the government of Jose Figueres Ferrer was decreed by law the abolition of the army and became the first country on the continent to apply this measure.
The abolition of the army brought great benefits to the Costa Rican society, although at first it was seen as a decision with political purposes, then it helped to have great and very important reaches in the Costa Rican society. The government budget that should be invested in an army was invested in areas such as education, health, and communications. This measure gave excellent results.
