"Sometimes democracy must be bathed in blood."
I have made good working condions, high wages, free accomodation and high profit enterprise from my island Tropico. All the people must have had military education and training to be prepared for hostile actions of foreign powers which want to exploit our great nation. Anyone who stands againts my will stands against all of us because I was the man of the people. Love Tropico or Leave it.
Be El Presidente, make your own paradise and doesn't matter if that should be paradise for capitalists, communists, intelectuals, religious, militarists, environmentalists, nationalists or loyalists (These are the factions), or a mix of them, or you can even try to satisfy every faction. The game starts few years after the second world war and you can befriend US or USSR (also you can try to be friend with both), or make trades with Europe, Middle East and China, if you do not want to take sides in cold war. You are a leader of small tropical island named Tropico and with your almost unlimited power you can do there whatever you want. You can give food, education and accommodation for free in the price of hard work and low wages of your citizens, or you can try to create utopia. If there are rebels who wants to take you down from your imaginary throne, you can cancel next elections and declare martial law.
