Costa Rica is a nation in Central America, that can be released by the United States of Central America. It is the southernmost part of USCA bordering Nicaragua to the north and Colombia ( Panama) to the south. Costa Rica is by far the smallest of the USCA states with only 21.000 POPs, which makes it one of the smallest countries in the entire world. 100% of the population is however the primary culture Central American.
All the five nations share the same primary culture, Central American, so the first steps of the strategy would actually be to try to conquer the other states of the former USCA. At some point or another all of the nations of USCA will be sphered by the US, and thus making conquest in the local area impossible. Alternatively one can attack Colombia if they are without allies and Brazil has decimated their army. Promoting clergymen is key to improve the bad literacy of the country. It is however pretty easy to get to 4% clergymen because of the population.
Immediately after being released, Costa Rica can pass either a social reform or a political reform, as liberals control 47% of the upper house and there are some socialists as well. It will boost immigration to Costa Rica, and is generally a good decision to do so. As more than half of the voting population is reactionary it will however change after a year, and then one can choose to remove a reform, which will of course hurt immigration then.
Costa Rica produces fruit which is good for a winery. It does however lack coal to produce glass. It does also produce coffee, which doesn't help industry, but will give a good deal of cash.
Panama has more Central American POPs, so Colombia is a natural target of conquest.
