Pointwons (pronounced "point-woah-ns") is an area in Gutstone, East Kuboia. Named after Johnathon Pointwon, it was established in April 1987. Though also a residential area, it is perhaps best known for its complex of entertainment offerings.
After Kuboia became an independent country in 1987, there was pressure to include new residential areas within the country in order to attract tourists and potential rise in popularity. Pointwons was then established several weeks later. The name of the area was named after Johnathon Pointwon, a soldier who died in World War II.
