You Will Fail.
Many DLC for the tropic series paint you on a corner and asks you to get out of it, and that is a part of the charm of the content’s theme. Whether you are force to use military, science or gathering a mass of money, this time around you have to export your cheese and beat the competitor, but it is not your competitor that is the issue, it is your mandate.
You are in power as long as the throne allows it and you WILL run out of time. The game will provide mini missions with some choices on how to move forward but these choices can result in cutting your mandate in half or just provide some money to keep you up but these rewards and even if you use the “save, see what happens and reload” cheaty method of playing the game and always choose to extend you mandate you will STILL run out of time even at the very easiest difficulty!
This issue has been mentioned MANY times on many forums that talk about this game and it is Still not been addressed. Worst, Simmilar "You WILL LOOSE" issues can be found in other Tropico 5 DLC so Please BEWARE!
(Tropico 3 and 4 do not have these overlooked issues.)
