Factory is the home world of the X101. The sentient machine race ruled and made by Mother Machine, inhabits a dry cold world in the Magnitude System. It is the only planet in the system and Factory has no natural moons, but two artificial moons called Bolt and Nut.

The planet is inhospitable to most NiOx breathers but all building interiors are provided with standard NiOx atmospheres, pressure and temperatures. There are no open bodies of water on the surface, but there are several large underground oceans and rivers. One of these rivers, Current 4 was used by the Special Ops team of Terra to infiltrate Mother Machine. There is only one city and it has no distinct name, it's called City of Factory now, but X101s have settled all over the planet in so called Community Clusters. 70% of the planet surface appears untouched, most Clusters are sub surface.
