I wonder about the brazilian timezone you call as "America/Sao_Paulo". In
Brazil, São Paulo is just a city (with a very large population indeed), but
as oficial time in Brazil we use the capital of Brazil, called "Brasília".

Why do you use the city of São Paulo as reference? Our legal local time is
Brasilia and not São Paulo. Can you please explain it better?

Thank you in advance. Best regards.
