A long range of densely forested mountains forms the spine of the peninsula, spanning its entire length. The lowlands are a mix of intensive agriculture and heavily populated urban areas, with the largest agglomeration being Gobras City on the northern coast. Situated between 18 and 23 degrees north latitude, the climate of the peninsula is subtropical and suitable for a wide variety of crops including rice, sugar, citrus and other fruits. The weather tends to alternate between pleasantly mild winter months and hot, humid summers with frequent rainfall and punctuated by severe cyclonic storms from the southeast. The northern side of the peninsula tends to be slightly cooler and drier than the southern side.
