** Penúltimo's name is also meaningful: he's your second in command, and his name is Spanish for "second to last".

** In one scenario where you have the goal to get popular on social media, the island is named "Caralibro" (Facebook). Other meaningful names include "Isla Desconocida" (Unknown Island) on a mission where you have to make your island famous, "Isla de Hierro" (Iron Island) where you have to make money from mining, "Isla de la Esperanza" (Hope Island) on a mission that is your hope to regain lost power, and "Yermo Encarnado" (Wasteland Incarnate) where you have no resources, no tourism, and must make money from importing supplies and selling manufactured products.

Added an example from the Tropico Series of Games

** One major reason for this (and which quite a few players miss) is the Service Quality of buildings. It's set up in such a way that visitors by default will pick a structure with higher service quality that is far away rather than one with a lower rating nearby, since distance, strangely enough, [[ViolationOfCommonSense is not factored into the calculation.]]

* PoisonousFriend: El Presidente's everpresent adviser Penultimo, especially in the first four games. While he's not treacherous, except for in Tropico III, and his advice tends to be well-meaning and informative (though it gets less so with each new game), he also tends to suggest the player take the amoral and selfish approach to problems - like ignoring the people's problems if its inconvenient, using violence against strikers and spending a mint on the palace instead of the island. If you screw up and get booted off the island in the first game, he comes with you and he steals all of your money the moment you fall asleep.
