A deep underground city spreading below Tokyo-3. Built using an pre-existing spherical cavity (most of which was filled with earth and sand), the ceiling portion was almost totally destroyed by the JSSDF's attack in episode 25' "Air", thus exposing the Geofront. NERV HQ is located in the centre of the Geofront, and is surrounded by forests and a subterranean lake. The many high-rise buildings that extend downward from the ceiling (Ceiling City = TENJOU TOUSHI) are the same buildings that stand in Tokyo-3, and are retracted underground during Angel attacks. The start of the Instrumentality Project revealed that this cavity is actually the egg of Lilith -- the "Black Moon".
