The Battle of Santa Dominica was the Tropico Republics first engagement against the Zombie horde. Unlike the U.S who was unprepared for a zombie attack Tropico was better prepared for the zombie attack due to intelligence from India, and South Korea. The battle took place in the mountains of the Santa Dominica province, unlike Yonkers the battle was a total loss, the Tropico Army was pushed from to the foot of the mountain and the causalities were less than the US losses at Yonkers.
The first zombie outbreaks actually occurred in China, and quickly spread across the globe. The United States was caught off guard, due to political divisions, and a strong anti-military stance by the public weakened the US which accumulated in the battle of Yonkers. Tropico was better off, a strong military presence, they also had a strong medic care, malaria and other diseases have been virtually wiped out by this time.
Like the U.S, Tropico deployed the "Nine Foxes" elite special forces, which like the alpha teams contained the smaller zombie outbreaks, that occurred in rural areas and hospitals . However the Tropico put the full military on alert, a majority of the outbreaks occurred in mountains of the Santa Dominica province, a majority of immigrants mostly from Asia, and Africa lived and worked in the Iron mines. The initial outbreak came from a six year old Chinese girl named Lin she didn't turn but her mother got infected and turned after she came in contact with Lin's blood.
The Tropico army and the police force received specialized training by the "Nine Foxes" special ops. Also the Tropico army and police deployed soldiers in elevated positions and didn't use Cold war tactics.
