This is the first mission of the campaign. The mission's main objective is that the island shall declare its independence.

You are given a limited timeframe which can be extended by completing optional objectives indicated with both red and blue bubbles . (To check objectives hold the curse above the indicators and press cn_B). If you don't succeed to raise your overall happiness level to 50% and declare independence before the time-limit runs out you will lose.Creating a Constitution will increase support and get you closer to declaring independence, so it's good to invest in scientific development. You should build a Library at the very beginning.

General Strategy
My advice is to follow the optional objectives if you have time and resources to do so. It is all about get to b]50% so you are able to declare independence(In my play-through I won with 20k in debt). So raising your overall happiness is the most important objective. You don't have to do all the optional objectives but they can help sometimes.

Strategy for raising the overall happiness level
First off the list is that you need to get a idea of what ares your island needs to improve, this shall make it more easier to decide where you want to invest your money. To do this you check the Almanac. The Almanac is where all the statistics gnomes show their results. To display the Almanac press: cn_LT+cn_X

Raising the different types of happiness levels:

Crime Safety:
Build a police station, should be noted this is not real problem for this mission. This also arrives late so you probably wont get the chance to build it
Will recommend build taverns, they are cheap and small thou should be noted that children are not allowed to visit. But should be working hard for el Presidente's factories anyway. wink
You can raise level food by have many diffrent kinds of food. This will not be a problem on this mission as there other categories that need a bump. So spend your money elsewhere
You can raise this category, it comes later era. With clinics.
Tropicans get a lot happier when they have a nice house to live in. Otherwise they just tend build shack and shit in their own backyard. This makes them unhappy. It is always good investment to buy a lot of houses. You can check how many homeless you have in the Almanac(cn_LTcn_X) If you have extra cash you can build mansions and this bump the percentage a bit. Be a bit smart, buid extra house so your growing population doesn't have to revert to build cardboard box shacks.
First a job is better than no job. Once you got the tropicans to work you can raise the job quality by raise the budget on the building, this leads that this category gets a raise. In this mission is really worth to just bump them up as you really just need people to be happy and being rich is not important
This is how free the tropicans feel. If you build a Newspaper near where they live they feel more free(plus they like TP). They feel a bit less free if you put a guard tower in middle of their housing complexes.
All tropicans are a religious lot, when they don't have place to worship they become unhappy. Building mission building will give them place to worship. Recomends to build it near their home. As they like to worship a lot. Saves a bit walking time.
Bonus Achievement
Each time you get an option to extend your mandate by 12 months, I would advice to take it over the other options even if they tempt you with money. This will finally also lead to unlocking this achievement. So if you meet the requirements (50% overall happiness) for declaring independence hold off until this achievement pops.
