The Religious are one of the political factions in Tropico 6. The Catholic Church has had time to establish itself in Tropico since colonial times, so it's no surprise that when the World Wars arrive they have managed to develop themselves into a proper faction with their own agenda.
Because Christianity is so ingrained in Tropican society they managed to remain relevant up to Modern Times. They promote peace, welfare, and tradition.
