[3132] Thanks to the presence of an abnormally huge gas giant in the system's outermost orbit, Alya follows an
elongated revolutionary cycle around its sun and has created an equally peculiar orbital path for Xanadu, Alya's
single large moon. The effects of these eccentric orbits have created such unusual day/night and seasonal cycles
for Alya that travelers to this world are given complicated native calendars and urged to use these in place of the
galactic standard during their stay to minimize confusion.

The first colonists on Alya were drawn to the abundant mineral and fuel resources locked beneath the planet's
many parched badlands, particularly on the rocky northern hemispheric continent of Paroasis. Agriculture,
hampered by the extreme winter and summer cycles and a lack of freshwater sources, was restricted to
controlled hydroponic efforts that relied on imported water, and failed to do more than support the needs of the
planet. Despite the handicaps, however, Alya thrived, supported by its local industries, which primarily produced
plastics and refined fuels for all manner of internal combustion engines. Alya suffered few serious raids or
changing of hands during the Succession Wars, and even made it through the Word of Blake Jihad with minimal
damage, as there were always more strategically important worlds nearby for an enemy to attack. It is perhaps
for this reason that this world boasts some of the most pleasant vistas in Prefecture I.

The capital city and commercial center of Alya, LeSabrea, is located on Paroasis, on the western shores of the
landlocked Saline Sea, while the bulk of the planet's industrial might is headquartered five hundred kilometers
east, in Flerise City. The southern continents of Zenishli and Desije, by comparison, are sparsely populated,
covered mostly by unspoiled evergreen wilderness and a mix of rolling hills and abrupt mountain chains.

[3132] Alya was originally part of the Draconis Combine until the creation of The Republic. Alya became part of
Prefecture I under the control of The Republic. After the fall of the HPG Network Fortress Republic was created
and many of the worlds under its control were set free.
[3135] Alya was released from the control of The Republic.

After being released from The Republic, Alya fell under the influence of the Vega territory.
