How exactly should a dictator dress?

by: Nathaniel -
More On: Tropico 4
Have you ever longed to be the dictator of your own small island nation?  Really, who hasn't?  What would be the best part?  Would it be killing your enemies or feeding your people (or killing your people and feeding them to your enemies)?  I think the best part is that you could wear whatever you want.  

Velvet sweatpants?  Sure.
Dirty wifebeater?  You're the boss.
A fedora 24/7? Great.
Epic spray tan?  You'll look positively glowing.
Sandals with shorts and socks?  Okay, even a dictator has to draw the line somewhere.

Anyway, this video for the Tropico 4 Gold Edition gives you a brief glimpse into the cloths that make the dictator (and the hairstyles, genders, and ridiculous cigars).  

The Tropico 4 Gold Edition comes out on November 13 for the Xbox 360 and PC.  To learn more, follow the jump.
