For the Foreign Power in Tropico 5, see USSR (Tropico 5).
Agent Sasha

Agent Sasha, the USSR representative.

The USSR (Union of Soviet Socialist Republics) is a superpower in Tropico 3 and Tropico 4.

The USSR was founded on the principles of Communism and is primarily concerned with the welfare of the Communist faction. Apart from that, the USSR mainly wants mined resources and a steady stream of Tropican alcohol.

The USSR operates an intelligence agency called the KGB (Komitet Gosudarstvennoy Bezopasnosti or Committee for State Security). If relations with the USSR fall too low, agents of the KGB may begin plotting against the island. It's possible for a presidente to have risen to power by being installed by the KGB, boosting their relationship with the Communists and the USSR and allowing the uneducated to become soldiers but giving Tropicans low hopes for liberty and democracy.

  • Although the USSR historically collapsed in 1991, this event isn't modeled in the Tropico games prior to Tropico 5 and the USSR will remain well after this date.
  • The flag used to represent the USSR in the in-game trade section of Tropico 4 is not actually the flag of the Soviet Union.
