The abdication of the old presidente of St. Helena provided the perfect opportunity for your rise to power. Now as the head of state it is your job to lead this small island nation to a new age of prosperity.

St. Helena is a modest island with rich and fertile lands, which have attracted the attention of the American food conglomerate Fruitas LTD. You should make use of the gringos to secure the financial future of the island as well as your own Swiss Bank Account.

Objective

Your goal is to export at least 8000 units of agricultural Exports.

Jan 1950

Congratulations on your victory, Presidente. Allow me to provide you with this helpful advice. Begin the construction of farms to cultivate the lands. Farming will guarantee a steady stream of export revenue as well as feed the citizens. Coffee, sugar and tobacco are the most profitable crops, but they will not feed the island's population.

Martin Gomez, former president of St. Helena

California, USA

P.S. Take no stock in the rumors behind my abdication. I assure you that it was due to health reasons.

​Jan 1950

Presidente,

Your first action should be to build at least 2 new farms. The exports from these farms will secure additional profits.

- Open the build menu, switch to the "Farms & Mines" category and select Farm.

- Select the culture you wish to grow from the Info Panel.

- Place the farm near a fertile (green) area. Do not cover the green area or it will become unsuitable for farming.

Farms have an initial growth cycle. They will begin to produce goods up to three years after their construction.

Presidente,

Frutias LTD, the multinational food conglomerate, has offered to send some of its specialists to help in the construction of new homes for the people of St. Helena. This will effectively halve the construction costs of houses and tenements.

Presidente,

My friend, housing should be one of your first priorities, once you establish a basic economy. Housing is one of the key needs of your citizens.

Apr 1955

Presidente,

The price of fruit and other agricultural exports have risen around the world. However, due to our trade agreement with Fruitas LTD we won't benefit from this market growth.


Event 10 Text

Mar 1956

Presidente,

The farmers have begun a strike. All of our farms have ceased operation. The leader of the Capitalist Faction is the organizer of the strike, but we have reason to believe that he was instructed to do so by Wisconsin Coffee Co. The WCC is Fruitas' main competitor in the Caribbean.


Choice 1

Meet demands (minimum wage set to $10)

Choice 2

Give the workers a compensation (-$2000 Treasury)

Choice 3

Send the military to break the strike (people may die as a result).

Event 11 Text

(Bonus Objective) You will gain 20 score each year as long as the "Food for the People" edict is active.

Presidente,

Since the economy of St. Helena is based primarily on production of agricultural exports it could be a good idea to give your citizens bigger rations. This will lower the exports and thus the profit from corn and fruits, but it will increase the happiness of your people. If you have problems keeping your subjects happy it may be wise to issue the "Food for the People" edict.

Choice 2

Decline


Event 13 Text

Aug 1959

Presidente,

The trade agreement with Fruitas LTD is gravely hindering our economic development. The export prices of agricultural goods have increased throughout the Caribbean once again. But because of your deals we are now losing profits.

<name>, leader of the capitalist faction

Event 14 Text

Jan 1960

Presidente,

As the population of your island grows they will need more and more food. Corn, Banana, Papaya and Pineapple farms will feed your population, but their export will diminish as your population rises. You should build additional farms to compensate the drop in agricultural exports.

You should always keep the future of your economy in mind. Investing in the construction and development of the industry is a crucial once you secure enough funds in the Treasury.

Terrible news presidente! The CEO of Fruitas LTD has jumped from the top of the Empire State Building. Apparently the company was deep in debt and is currently under investigation by the US Government. The authorities have found documents implicating you in taking bribes and offering Fruitas preferential prices. As a result, our relations with the US have deteriorated.


Event 22 Swiss Bank Account >$10k Text

Mar 1965

Presidente,

Fruitas LTD has filed for bankruptcy and its rivals are getting ready to ransack its remains.

Buy Fruitas LTD as a state company (-$10000 Treasury)
