Punto de Christopher (pv:Kristophara Panto) is the largest city, and the capital of Tierajas-Verdes, holding legislative branches and economic centers for the south of Tierajas-Verdes. The city has a population of approximately 1.1 million as of 2015, whilst the metropolitan region it is capital of, Punto de Christopher TNC, has a population of approximately 1.9 million. It is the second most populous city in Tierajas-Verdes. The city lays on the banks of the Ocevei river at the mouth exiting into the Asperic Ocean.

History

Colony of Norte Baldoria

Punto de Christopher held importance as being the historical capital of the colony Norte Baldoria, colony of the Castellán Empire.

Originally named the Colonia de Bhyalenja (in:Bhyalenja Colony), the settlement was one of those amalgamated in 1451 with the assistance of the Castellán colony and southern neighbour Baldoria into a larger colony of Norte Baldoria. The capital of Norte Baldoria was moved from what is now known as Solosancho where the original Castellán settlers landed, to the larger populated settlement of Colonia de Bhyalenja. The original Puerto de Christopher was opened for trade with other colonial nations and Castellán located directly south of Colonia de Bhyalenja, growing the city further.

As the city grew out and further up the Ocevei river, the largely natural island of Tinati Ta'oyarsa was conceived over a span of 200 years, with the first fort being established circa 1470 to the south of the island, and the second being established circa 1650 to watch over the river coming down into the city, watching for invasions from the north.

At some point around 1888 when Tierajas-Verdes claimed independence from Castellán, the name of the city was changed from Colonia de Bhyalenja to Punto de Christopher, with the original Colonia de Bhyalenja changing name to the Pavparvati name of Bhyalenja Kaloni. The change from Puerto (in:Port) to (in:Point) is theorized to be from a misunderstanding of the Castellán language by Pavparvati speaking law-makers.

Grand Verdese War

Punto de Christopher is debated to be one of the flash-points of the start of the Grand Verdese War, as the military coup d'état that took place by General Nirav Kulkarni against the parliament of President Rameshwar Vives. From 1983 to 1987 when the guerrilla war turned into a conventional war, General Kulkarni demonstrated signs of a dictatorial leader by building a large tower in central Punto de Christopher popularly named La Hermana Alta (in:The High Sister) which became the new presidential residence, while plans for a smaller tower called La Hermana Baja (in:The Low Sister) were scrapped after 1987. The popular park in central Punto de Christopher, Parca Mhasalkar, located in front of La Hermana Alta, was also created during construction of La Hermana Alta.

After the Grand Verdese War, La Hermana Alta still stood, but did not hold the president's residences any more, now hosting a museum, business, and assorted government offices.

El Segundo Milenio

The Millennium and Reconstruction Bill passed in 2000, generally introduced to rebuild destroyed infrastructure after the Grand Verdese War, included plans to rebuild damaged sections of Punto de Christopher, although damage in the city was minimal compared to Pavparvati cities like Parirakbe. Plans to reconstruct Punto de Christopher for the new millennium wasn't as comprehensive as plans for Pavparvati nations as a result, and lead to the growth of population in Pavparvati cities like Parirakbe and Chaangee Said, bringing their populations closer to the population of Punto de Christopher.

Bimu and a new larger port now called Nuevo Puerto de Boca were the main focus on reconstruction of Punto de Christopher to allow the economy to grow again in the city, offering a economic, banking, and international trade center for the capital.

Hosting the Expomondiale was first visualized in 2002, as part of plans to introduce international trade and relations again after the Grand Verdese War, and the event was hosted finally in 2005/6 with Expomondiale '06 in land formerly used by a steel mill, and farms between Tiufsi'te and Mutibausai.
