Tonfe (phonetic: tonf) is a large planet of hostile surface, which,
while inhabitable, is hot, arid, and the atmosphere harbors a
strange, odorous substance which permeates everything and is
generally difficult to get rid of.
Tonfe is also home to Byte, Inc., the largest manufacturer of computing components and information processing technology in the galaxy. All facilities are located underground because of the hostile surface and span most of the area therein.
As Byte controls the subterranean cities, they are kept
exceptionally clean to avoid polluting their delicate components.
Spaceports are generally located over a hundred miles away from
civilization to maintain the cleanliness and security of the
manufacturing centers. Employees are signed up for a three year
contract, during which they are not allowed to leave the planet, and
at the end of which their minds are partially wiped to prevent
industry secrets from getting out.
