FTA: Costa Rica's mountainous terrain meant that it never developed large farms, as other countries in Central America did, so it was never dominated by a powerful landholding class. Costa Rica's small-property owners have elected presidents who have made education a priority, ensured clean water, instituted social security, and established free clinics in most villages

Amazing what can happen when we don't have selfish greedy assholes in charge!
