How do you prepare a climate for your own country? It wasn't too difficult for Montenera. Just look at the climate of the Azores. Montenera is located just north of this island group. The far north of Montenera is perhaps a little colder and wetter than the south, around the Azores. But in general Montenera has a fairly nice climate. So not wrong. Certainly better than the climate of the Netherlands!
On Wikipedia, for example, the following is stated about the Climate of Portugal: "The Azores have a constant climate throughout the year with few temperature differences. The temperature varies between 14.0 and 24.8 ° C, with August being the hottest month. The seawater varies in temperature between 16.0 and 22.0 ° C during the year, under the influence of the Gulf Stream.
The climate of Montenera is similar to that of the Azores. Because Montenera has a north-south orientation, the north is a little cooler than the south.
The mountains also influence the climate. The east of the country falls in the rain, so it is drier.
The west of the island is wetter due to the predominantly western winds.

Montenera was originally discovered by Columbus. When he sailed to the Azores, he soon discovered a large country north of it. The Portuguese settled in the south of the island, in a bay where they found the settlement of Novobão. This is therefore one of the oldest cities in Montenera. The area around Novobao was called Novibon by the Portuguese, after the Portuguese capital Lisbon.
When the Dutch arrived north of the island in the 17th century, the island had already been colonized by Portuguese and Spaniards. These, however, had no interest in colonizing what they called the "wild north." When the Dutch moved further south and established the port city of Blaeupoort (which they named after the well-known Dutch cartographer Blaeu), the Spaniards and Portuguese were still afraid that they would lose the island. This eventually led to negotiations whereby the Netherlands transferred part of Brazil (Recife) to Portugal.
Montenera was governed from 3 European countries until 1965: United Kingdom, the Netherlands and Portugal.
At the time of the decolonization, the Länder each became independent.
In 1968, two years after independence, the four Länder decided to continue under a country name: the Republic of Montenera (land of - volcanic - mountains).
The present-day Montenera is an independent republic, with different population groups. The capital Lassano is located in the federal district. Mondespera is mainly spoken there.

The English once introduced the Three-sided football in the English-speaking part of Montenera (Woths). Three teams play against each other. This naturally changes the rules of the game.
