These are the inner planets of the Revla System, located within the Norayis Sector
of the Alpha Quadrant in my AU Abramsverse New Start series.
This is the home system of the Nlians, members of the United Federation of Planets.
The Nlians are a humanoid species native to the planet Nlia.
They are a gentle race, whose culture emphasizes sharing, cooperation and love of the environment.
Nlians are members of the United Federation of Planets and becoming increasingly common in Starfleet.
"The desert is far from barren."
The Nlian homeworld is Nlia, an M-Class planet in the Norayis Sector of the Alpha Quadrant.
The planet has three main landmasses:
The Northern Land: A tiny island continent roughly the size of Turkey.
The Western Land: A large continent the size of Eurasia.
The Eastern Land: A large continent about the size of Asia.
Both the Western and Eastern continents are referred to collectively as the Southern Lands.
The Southern Lands are largely arid, comprised of endless deserts, towering mesas, deep canyons and arid savannahs.
In complete contrast, the Northern Land is temperate and covered with thick forests.
Much of the landscape of the Southern Lands is harsh and forbiddin
The Norayis Sector is in the Alpha Quadrant a little over 20 light years ‘south’ of Talos and 40 light years ‘east’
of Klingon space It is located within the territory of the United Federation of Planets
The Revla System is about 115 light years 'south west' of Earth.
It is in the northern part of the sector, south' of the Ziayfa System.
The system has one star, four planets and forty nine moons
Type: G type yellow star

Icar is the first planet from the sun.
Its a hot, arid world with several active volcanoes.
It's rich in ores and minerals, including dilithium.
It's the location of Nlia's largest mining facilities, refineries and shipyards and has many off world visitors.
The Nlians have always been as meticulous and careful about the environment of Icar as they have of their home planet
In the 400 years they've have mined Icar, they've used less than 0.4% of its resources.
Class: M (Earth-like)
Rotation: 26 hours
Orbit: 370 days

Nlia is the second planet from the sun and homeworld to the Nlians.
It's largely a desert world but home to a rice and vibrant civilization.

Tilva is rich in minerals and known for its unique geographical features.

Earth is definitely highly populated!
It wasn't always so, from the 1st century-1400 A.D. Earth's population was 300 million.
It was after that, and the development of the Industrial Age it started growing by leaps and bounds.
Most of Nlia is a harsh desert with limited resources and as a result, throughout their history Nlians have
had a low birth rate. They're only fertile at certain times and no Nlian has ever had more than three children.
Because they couldn't have children whenever they felt like it, when children did come they’re greatly valued
by everyone. Also when they lived in small nomadic tribes, the scarcity of resources led to careful management
and knowing that their numbers couldn’t be easily replaced, resulted in groups avoiding conflict with each other.
Even after they became more advanced and developed cities the population remained small.
They’re not the only planet with a small population in the Star Trek verse. I read somewere that Trill
only has about 600 million and Andoria has a population of 1 billion.
You’re right their population is much smaller than ours. It’s always a bit of a culture shock when a Nlian visits Earth!Most of their world is a harsh desert with limited resources. As a result, throughout their history Nlians have

was about 100 million
