Beaksledge (formerly known as Rio Rojo) is a the largest city in Centro de Tropicalia, and the fourth largest city in Tropicalis. Beaksledge is located on the south-eastern quarter of Central Island in the Greater Tropicapolis Area, directly adjacent to the capital, and is also the second largest city in its metropolitan are. Beaksledge is positioned on the mouth of the River Rojo, and is known for it's hotels, countless diving spots and local coral reef system.
Founded in the year 1691, Beaksledge was once to be known as Phillipsvilla, named after its founder, Phillip Luis, who submitted a request to the country's government to have his own city founded. Since Phillip's founding of the city, it had expanded to include and incorporate all other local communities and villages in the surrounding region by the 1900s, by which the city had been renamed to its current name.
The city was founded towards the start of the Sphenisdean Empire's colonial age by Phillip Luis in 1691. Phillip, who would go on to become the city's first mayor united groups of small villages, unincorporated communities as well as the small trading port nearby to found the city. With approval from the government, the city was officially founded under the name of "Rio Rojo", a name used by the villagers and traders to describe the local area. Gradually, the small towns, villages and communities began to merge, expanding closer to the equally expanding city center. By the mid-1700s, the city had grown to 18,000 residents after over a decade of properly developing itself. The city's close proximity to the nation's capital, Tropicapolis and its connections to a vast number of cities via its seaports allowed for more expansions. Beaksledge's quiet neighbourhoods and clean coasts also attracted more visitors and residents from Tropicapolis, bringing the population up to around 35,000.
The city experienced another population explosion in the early 1940's, with many immigrants moving into Tropicalis. By 1953, the population had risen to about 200,000.

Beaksledge is the second largest city in the Greater Tropicapolis Area, behind the capital of the country and metropolitan area itself. Beaksledge is located north of the nation's capital, and is connected to the River Rojo that flows through and exits through the city's coast. Several lakes are also present across the city and its districts, many of which are used for sailing, boating or other activities. The Phillipsvilla district, the original site of Beaksledge and its founding, is located further up the River Rojo away from the coast, but since the city's growth, expanded to include the coastal areas and districts.
The local region is rather flat, save for the Artemia Hills region (which was named accordingly because of this exception).
- Turrim Luis - A famous icon of Beaksledge, featured in most depictions and photographs of the city.
Beaksledge is home to a population of 700,000 most of whom are penguins. This sizeable penguin population is comprised of Emperors, Adelies, Southern Kantas and Galapagos penguins. Beaksledge also has puffle and tern populations living in the city as well, as well as a small population of other miscellaneous categories of species. Most of the city's residents enjoy the comfort of the local weather and beaches, as well as its appealing landscape and scenery, and have lived in the capital for at least a few years before moving to the city.
This city receives a large amount of tourism, being one of the most visited cities in the mainland, with over millions of tourists every year from a variety of other countries, mostly from colder or more distant regions.
Rail-based transportation networks that serve as transportation run through much of the city, connecting several districts to each other. Almost all of these rail-based systems are managed by TramSport™ Corporation Limited, a Tropicalian company that specializes in mass rapid transit systems.
The city contains a light rail system, complete with a street-level tram system that runs through the central districts to the outer regions of the city, stretching from Downtown Beaksledge to Summertine. On average, over 200,000 local residents use the light rail every single day as a means of transportation. In service since the early 1930s, the light rail tram system has since upgraded to having all of their vehicles run electric, as part of the national "Project Green State" initiative that took place in the 1950s.
