** Housing problems are a bane in the latter Tropico games. This is due to Tropicans preferring to live near their workplace in spite of having a garage to allow trips, Tropicans not moving to better housing opportunities despite having the means to occupy said housing (you'll see well-off citizens living in shacks despite having empty condominiums), or Tropicans just being stubborn that you have to manually delete the shack to force them to live on a better house.

Added DiffLines:

* DefconFive: Averted in a mission on ''Tropico 4'' where certain quests will decrease or increase the worldwide DEFCON level. You want to keep it as high as possible, and if you screw up and hit DEFCON 1, the world goes to war and you fail the mission.

** Especially noticeable in ''4'' with the special edict giving you one hundred Chinese immigrants - who also look and sound identical to everyone else on the island, only able to be distinguished by their names.

Added DiffLines:

* InformedWrongness: Invoked and played for laughs when Socialism is researched.
-->'''Penultimo:''' ''(heavyhearted)'' Presidente, don't research that. Don't you know that if you do, you will then research Socialism. Which everyone knows is bad. We should stick to our current model of capitalist cronyism. I, my friends, and and all my relatives think is the best model for government

* {{Salaryman}}: One of the new Modern Times buildings is a business tower full of uneducated employees who generate income depending on how many other people are living in an area. Office workers are bottom-of-the-barrel white-collar workers, but it allows you to make money off of dense populations without needing to export anything.

Office workers are bottom-of-the-barrel white-collar workers, but it allows you to make money off of dense populations without needing to export anything. The education requirements are raised in ''5'', where they are defined as people willingly confined and denied a variety of freedoms as a reward for their devoted studying in college.


Added DiffLines:

** In ''5'', "red staplers are officially banned from office buildings, they set off fire detectors. Don't ask Milton to lend you his, [[Film/OfficeSpace it will not end well]]".
