History of TropicoEdit
Tropico consists of the Caribbean Islands of
Saint Marcos (The Largest) was discovered in 1623 by the Spanish. Not yet colonized, the island became a crime hotspot in the 1700s after the golden age of piracy swept through the Caribbean. In 1763 the British took control of Saint Marcos and nearby Saint Clara, renaming both as British Tropico. It served as a heavy weapon manufacturer and as a British naval base. In 1948 a military 'coup-d'état succesfully established the island as independent. The former British government was thrown out and replaced by Generallisimo Ryan Faulkner. The Islands of Saint Marcos and Saint Clara were united under the name "People's Republic of Tropico". Pinana Island was added to Tropican territory after bitter fighting with bordering nation between 1899 and 1966 Gwendola Republic. Pinana Island is the main Agriculture area.
From 1950 on, Tropico was a Communist Republic, it reformed and became a republic as of 1997 due to the collapse of the Soviet Union and because of international pressure.
