Missions are game objectives related to the main campaign in Tropico 5. The main campaign is called "Changing the World". Odd numbered missions give you a choice between two islands to play the mission on, the next mission is played on the other island. After every even mission the technological era will increment (if you haven't triggered it already) and the layout/buildings on your island are saved from the previous missions.
