The Crystal Boulevard is a street on Gallente Prime, in the city Caille, made entirely out of clear crystal - including the buildings, roads, lamps and all. All items on the boulevard are not made of the same material - some buildings are built out of glass or plastic polymers, while richer establishments are custom-grown crystal forms. What appears to be crystal cobblestones on the road are actually just decorative carvings on twenty-meter deep blocks of pure synthetic diamond. The foundation of the boulevard is five square hundred-meter blocks laid in a row, each twenty meters deep, made of diamond. For eighty meters below that, it's layers of plates of latticed crystal-carbonate nanofiber armor. This is in fact a protective screen for a set of security bunkers for the three main branches of government and federation military command.

When the Caldari admiral — Yakiya Tovil-Toba — deliberately crashed his ship onto Gallente Prime to buy his people time to evacuate Caldari Prime, it became clear that the ultra-nationalist idea for a super-fortified bunker might not be a bad idea. The bunker system and the protective shield was built, and the government opened up for civilians to rent space on the surface of the shield. The massive project paid for itself within 20 years.
