You, the newly installed dictator of an obscure Caribbean island, must create a life of prosperity and happiness for your people. Build farms to feed them, tenements to house them, pubs to lift their spirits, and churches to save their souls. Follow a socialist path of factories, mines, logging and fishing, or chase capitalist dollars by building resorts to lure Yanqui tourists. Success will bring the praise of your people along with a fat Swiss bank account. Failure? Well, there's always martial law. Increase your wealth and power in more than 35 scenarios (like Spring Breakdown and El Presidente For Life) packed full of yuppie tourists, tropical storms, rebel uprisings, and more!

This ultimate Fun in the Sun compilation includes the full versions of Tropico and Tropico: Paradise Island, along with over two hours of original, award-winning Latin music.
