Freecloud was an inhabited planet in the Alpha Doradus system. It contained a number of urban areas, including Stardust City, and hosted a diverse population. Spacecraft approaching Freecloud were subjected to aggressive, personalized holographic advertisements projected inside said craft. Dismissal of the advertisements required physical interaction with the holograms. Space traffic was handled by Freecloud Orbital Control.
Freecloud was a mecca for businesses of all kinds, due to its maximum-security commercial and information services, and minimal restrictions on personal liberties. Its welcome banner displayed the name prominently and included rolling dice. An interfacers guild was present on the planet, and Bjayzl's base of operations was also located there. The Fenris Rangers stored their funds on Freecloud, as well. (PIC: "Stardust City Rag")
