      #5 is wrong. I take it this is based on an article on The Telegraph? If you do your research properly before including a widely exaggerated map that was published in a British newspaper you would include some sort of explanation for the map. In fact that article makes it clear that the map uses a very broad sense of “invaded”.  Being Costa Rican I can tell you it was never “invaded” in the common use of the word.
      In fact the article specifies:
      “So, many countries which once formed part of the Spanish empire and seem to have little historical connection with the UK, such as Costa Rica, Ecuador and El Salvador, make the list because of the repeated raids they suffered from state-sanctioned British sailors.” So since you fail to provide the citation and the citation, despite the fact that you should do your research and cite where you get your information here it is:
