The Paradise Islands is a semester-long simulation in which the students are faced with the challenges inherent with developing a third-world economy. The students are formed into several groups, each with a specific task and the authority to devise an appropriate solution. What the students do not know is that their different tasks are mutually exclusive so that the first solutions will not work for all participants. Subsequent negotiation is needed to develop a single plan which is then presented to a panel of outside experts.
