Teldano is a wet world that consists mostly of shallow seas and a few flat landmasses.
The combination of high humidity and and broad, flat landmasses has made Teldano a prime planet for the growth of an algae that is used as a protein-base for the manufacture of foodstuffs. The world in under Imperial control and serves as a penal colony as well as an agricultural base.
The Imperial Penal Colony
The Imperial penal colony sits at the central hub of algae farms that radiate from it for thousands of kilometers. It is the only technologically-advanced area on the entire planet. The inmates serve as a labor force for the production of the protein-rich algae.
