The Cold War is in full swing and through means devious and dubious you have seized power of the Caribbean island of Tropico, where you now rule as the all powerful "El Presidente". No matter whether you turn Tropico into a vacation paradise or a modern industrial nation, you will always have to defend your actions before your people! Wander through Tropico and intimidate political opponents, hold populist speeches or just enjoy your country's own Caribbean flair. History takes its course with events such as the Cuba crisis, papal visits and other actual decisive historical events. The only question is whether or not you can play a role in that history!
