Albalii II - more commonly known simply as Albalii - was the second planet in the Albalii system.[1]

Planetary History[edit]

Early History[edit]

The first colonists on Albalii were of Arabic descent, and they soon learned that the inland regions of the various continents were a poor prospect for agriculture. The first cities on the planet grew on the few beachfront areas that existed, as well as long the few readily accessible rivers; the inland regions were left largely to mineral exploitation.[1]

The Star League[edit]

The government of Albalii was looking to expand the amount of agriculture taking place on the planet, but were unwilling to pay the costs of importing fresh water from elsewhere, and instead embarked on a feat of planetary engineering; the government hired DropShips and over the course of the next ten years ferried huge quantities of water from the oceans into artificial lakes on the various continents. The water was then purified, and the coastlines of these artificial oceans became the sites for most of Albalii's cities, watching over the crops growing in the newly-created farmlands. Even in the Dark Age, the population would be justifiably proud of the accomplishments made by them and their ancestors, accomplishments which included increasing the amount of arable land cultivated more than a thousandfold.[1]
