Indeed, pacifism is enshrined in the constitution. Seventy years ago Costa Rica abolished its army and today, as the most populous country on Earth without a standing military, it is home to the United Nations University for Peace and the Inter-American Court of Human Rights. Which further explains that lofty position in the Happy Planet Index.
