Neighborhood Veronaville

The Monty family is a controlling group. Their name is a reference to the Montague family in Romeo and Juliet, as is much of Veronaville. They are involved in a feud with the Capp family. Romeo Monty is currently in a secret relationship with the Capp heiress, Juliette. The Monty family lives in Monty Ranch. It appears that the Monty family has one of the longest pre-made lineages in the game, besides the Capp family. Most of the Montys are overweight, probably as a result of owning a restaurant.
