Afaik, there isnt any, it is hardcoded deriving from a random generator that however creates the same result each time.

Planetinfo.plist is the file you seek, but it is not there as default....
it needs to be added, The wiki offers exellent answers...

Very well, CH. I'm pleasently impressed!

Given my persona's intended reputation as a borderline psycho, the idea was to convey a feeling of imminent danger, the (un)subtle menace of sudden mutilation. The visual version of "nan da to?!"(1) or even an unspoken "mapputatsuni hiki sakuwayo, manuke!!!"(2), if you get my drift...
Maybe I should re-edit the image and include a bit more of the tsuka (hilt) to make it more recognisable, maybe even add an expressively glaring eye behind it.

Why did you thank for? If you hadn't, you'd have looked even better.

Notes:
(1) "What did you say?!" As in English, given the proper context and intonation it has the meaning of "I dare you to say that again!"
(2) "I'll tear you in half, you bufoon!!!" In Japanese this expression carries a lot more power than in English (where it is already quite strong a threat), and whomever gets to the point of actually saying it is probably an Yakuza and means to do it in a most literal way. Anyway, if you ever hear it, RUN!
You know those who, having been mugged and stabbed, fired, dog run over, house burned down, wife eloped with best friend, daughters becoming prostitutes and their countries invaded - still say that "all is well"?
I'm obviously not one of them.
