"When was the last Costa Rican dictator? If I remember my history correctly, Costa Rica has been a democracy for over 100 years."

Its been a Democracy for most of the last 150 years, with the occasional break for a dictatorship or civil war (the last occurring in 1948). Relatively stable by south/central American standards. They must be doing something right because they have an elected Libertarian in the equivalent to Congress.

However, when replying to anything Galeno writes, I reserve the right to misrepresent and distort the facts, rant, and exaggerate, just as Galeno does.
