Tropico Wiki

Penultimo, the Loyalist representative.

The Loyalists are an internal faction in Absolute Power and Tropico 4.

Loyalists are personally enamored with Tropico's leader and want everyone to feel as they do. To this end, they push for anything to do with the hero worship of El Presidente.

Strangely, despite their fondness for the presidente, even the most die-hard loyalists can still vote against them, run against them in elections, or turn out to be crime bosses, spies, or other antagonists in the game's campaign.
