Try Central and East Java (including Yogyakarta), Indonesia. Similar latitude and timezone-solar time offset, the times are similar!!!
Banyuwangi, Indonesia time is copycat of Recife's!!!

Even as it stands, Britain (and the EU) makes one big mistake, the clocks go forward at least a month too late. In late October when they go back the sun is well south of the equator, and days last about 10 hours here. The same situation arises in mid February, yet we don't move them forward till the end of March by which time the sun is rising before 6am.
February is the latest solar noons. So sunrise is still "lagging" while sunset is close to spring-like times

Doesn't have a signifcant affect in winter but in summer sunrise is quite a bit later than it would normally be at 55North. Almost 5am instead of 3am.

I think we have the same sunrise times as eastern america in the summer and the same sunset times as eastern america in the winter.
Yes. Winter Sunset in lubec maine can reach 3.47pm earlier than your 4.00pm
You should be on gmt-0.5

Some Date Line anomalies:

Due to the IDL bulge around Kiribati, it's possible to observe three different days around the world at the same moment.
And because of the hammer-like shape of that bulge you can travel west along the equator and need to substract one day at Kiribati's western border.
Conversely, if you travel from Russia (after 8 pm) to Alaska you are already on the same day.

Chatham islands NZ use a quarter timezone offset, but it's Off about 1/2 hours (1 1/2 in summer)
If they want quarter offset for accuracy to the solar time, the most accurate is UTC+12:15 (instead of UTC+12:45 and DST UTC+13:45 like now)
But I think they could use UTC+12 like the rest of NZ. It's more accurate to solar time compared to UTC+12:45

It maybe explain the good habit of early-rising there.

Maybe it's the reason for most Muslim countries not having DST, because their day are (most) governed by the prayer times, that comes from sunrise/set and twilight times.
They get up at dawn (before sunrise) to do the dawn prayer, so no waste because of summer early sunrises.
