according to: https://www.usnews.com/news/best-countries/power-rankings costa rica is #72

according to: https://militarywatchmagazine.com/forceapp/countries costa rica does not rank

according to: https://www.globalfirepower.com/countries-listing.asp costa rica also does not rank

https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/world/2018/01/05/costa-rica-celebrate-70-years-no-army/977107001/ and oh yeah, I forgot-Costa Rica hasn't had a standing military since 1948

The problem is, as it stands, some people can type all 196 countries in 3.5 minutes. I have to balance giving appropriate time with making the quiz more an intellectual challenge than a typing one.
