The houses in Tropica are held up by stilts. The lumber for building the furniture, walls and floors is from the trees that grow naturally. The floors and walls are shiny and smooth wood. The roofs are pointed at the top. This is for when it rains. The rain just slides off instead of being held up on a flat roof. If this isn't done. the roof will slowly weaken until it collapses. The windows are big and you can only open a few since there are so many bugs and other critters that can find there
way into the house. There are two doors for safety against the big animals that come to your house for scavenging. There are likely to be many rooms in the house all with a lot of open space. All doors and windows have locks. Basements and attics are not permitted because the basements have a high chance of flooding since rainfall gets really high and attics allow a nice quiet space for critters to nest.
In Tropica the money will be made out of the gold that you can mine right under your feet. The gold coins will be made from mints, a machine that can make coins out of m platinum, uranium, gold, silver, and metal. Making paper money is illegal since you can cut down any tree around you and make that into a lot of pa per money easily.
These gold coins are called “Solidos” which means “Gold coins” in Latin. The symbol in the middle of the coin is a rose with an extra leaf stem next to it. All the coins are the same size but will have different numbers on them to determine how much they are. The coins will be either 5s, 10s, 20s, 40s, 50s, 100s, and 500s.
In Tropica the holidays and celebrations we have are Christmas, Halloween, Easter, Valentines Day, New Year’s Eve, and the Fourth of July. We have all the same months, days, and years, the amount of days in a year and a month is the same. We have a day of celebration in the year that worships and thanks all the animals and plants of Tropica that have and will be sacrificed for our benefit. Why? Because of what they have provided us to live on another planet. We have a celebration to the dead that have died on the new planet because it’s a belief that it is like a “New death” or a “New place to die”. During the funeral they will whisper and think up of a bunch of nice things to say about the person, and in their mind they send them off to a new heavenly place. Another celebration
we have is based off a story that happened when we first came to Tropica. We landed on the planet and were fine, but not for long. We were starving for food. So one day, a young women set off to cross the bridge that secured us of all the dangers on the other side of the island. She made it through the volcano, climbing over the mountains, finding her way in the great forests, and crossed another bridge to find another island. What did that island have on it? Animals! Tons and tons of animals flourished on this peaceful side of the island where there were orangutangs, elephants, peacocks, jaguars, leopards, pandas, tigers, toucans, macaws, frogs, arachnids, snakes, sloths, and snails. She brought back food and saved everyone! They made a celebration to show leadership, heart, and strength of all women and what they can do!

The animals in Tropica are very varied. There are orangutangs, elephants, peacocks, jaguars, leopards, pandas, tigers, toucans, macaws, frogs, arachnids, snakes, sloths, and snails. They all serve a purpose in the food chain. The environment is very dense. There are ponds in certain places. But there is one big lake in the middle of the island. Trees and plants are very close to each other. If you get to high land then you will find yourself climbing mountains that tower over the landscape. Most of the animals find caves or dens in the mountains. Some find holes in the ground or live up in the trees. Danger are-
as have big geisers, volcanic activity, and random holes and pits. Civilization has taken the other half of the island that is safe from danger. Animals are very curious and will often come into contact with the children at play or adults at work that are deep in the animal hot spots. The trees in Tropica can be used for paper and furniture. The high amount of gold in Tropica can be used for money. The gold will be turned into gold coins. The space that is cleared from cutting down trees will be turned into pastures to raise farm animals like cows, pigs, lamb, chickens, horses, and goats.
This is a chart that shows the monthly rainfall in Tropica all year long.
For transportation in Tropica we use horses for travel. The only pieces of machinery we have on Tropica are boats, construction machinery, and tractors. We do not use cars because the forest is so dense and the roads will have lots of potholes and loose gravel. Horses can easily get through forests and donâ€™t need roads to walk on. We sell varied horses but canâ€™t import them from earth, they are raised here. We sell Thoroughbreds, Warm bloods, Clydesdales, Shire horses, Arabians, Palominos, Friesians, Roans, Pin-
tos, Connemara's, and Greys. These horses are all strong and tall to get past all of the underbrush. It is also a sport to ride horses on Tropica, and we hold lots of fun and entertaining competitions for all ages. It is required to learn how to ride because it is your main transportation. Everyone gets their own horse, even children and it will be theirs to ride, train, and care for until the horseâ€™s death. You have to have your own horse and know the basics of riding and care for the horse by the age of 10.
