    Costa Ricaball, officially Inverted Thailandball the Republic of Costa Ricaball is a countryball in Central America. It is bordered by Nicaragua-icon.png Nicaraguaball to the north, Panama-icon.png Panamaball to the southeast, the Pacific Ocean to the west, the Caribbean Sea to the east. The country is divided into 7 provinces, including its capital San Jose (Capital)-icon.png San Joséball, giving it a total area of 19,714 square miles (51,059 sq km), making it the 5th largest country in Central America, and 126th in the rest of the world. With a population of only 5.125 million as of 2021, Costa Rica ranks 122 in the most populous countries in the world.

    Having access to the Pacific Ocean, as well as being geographically in North America, gives it the ability to join OASball, as well as becoming a candidate for the Pacific Allianceball

    Unlike the other Central American countries, Costa Ricaball does not suffer from internal guerrillas and has a superior economic, social and diplomatic advance than the other Central American nations. Nowadays it makes fun of hidden by the difficulties that the rest of the Central Americans countryballs' past, sometimes even believing it does not belong to Central America. It has focused its life on its economy and ecosystems, which is mainly why it is richer than all the other countries in Central America except for Guatemala-icon.png Guatemalaball. It is a very peaceful country that has not had an army since December 1, 1948.

    History[edit | edit source]

    Early History[edit | edit source]

    Costa Ricaball was born as a 3-icon.png 3ball in 10,000 BC where is part of Isthmo-Colombian Area, and the Clovis culture that spreads from South American 3-icon.png 3 and 7-icon.png 7 balls. From here, the Kingdom of Nicoya-icon.png Kingdom of Nicoyaball was founded, and it was a very peaceful until the Spanish Empire-icon.png Spanish Empireball took all of the Central America.

    Spanish Colonization[edit | edit source]

    Accounts differ as to whether the name la costa rica (Spanish for "rich coast") was first applied by Christopher Columbus, who sailed to the eastern shores of Costa Rica during his final voyage in 1502, and reported the presence of vast quantities of gold jewelry among the natives (No 'murrica, we don't have oil). Or by the conqueror Gil González Dávila, who landed on the west coast in 1522, met with the natives, and appropriated some of their gold.

    Independence[edit | edit source]

    Like the rest of Central America, Costa Rica never fought for independence from Spain. On September 15, 1821, after the final Spanish defeat in the Mexican War of Independence (1810–21), the authorities in Guatemala-icon.png Guatemalaball declared the independence of all of Central America. That date is still celebrated as Independence Day in Costa Ricaball, even though, technically, under the Spanish Constitution of 1812 that had been readopted in 1820, Nicaragua and Costa Rica had become an autonomous province with its capital in León.

    Later History[edit | edit source]

    After Mexico's independence from Spain, Costa Ricaball became independent too, but it decided to join First Mexican Empire-icon.png First Mexican Empireball. In 1823, after the collapse of the First Mexican Empire, it became a province of the Federal Republic of Central America-icon.png Federal Republic of Central Americaball, along with Guatemala-icon.png Guatemalaball, El Salvador-icon.png El Salvadorball, Honduras-icon.png Hondurasball, and Nicaragua-icon.png Nicaraguaball until November 14, 1838. From there, it formally declared sovereignty in 1847. Since then, Costa Rica has remained among the most stable, prosperous, and progressive nations in Latin America. Following a brief but bloody civil war, it permanently abolished its army in 1949.
