Its land mostly desert, even on the north polar continent of Maysun, Dar-es-Salaam was overlooked by several early colonial expeditions until it became the focus of a massed relocation of Moslem immigrants from Terra in the late twenty-fifth century, after their spiritual leaders finally approved the departure of followers into space. Because of its surface resemblance to the vast desert regions of the Middle East and Northern Africa, from which many of these settlers hailed, they chose this world as their new sanctuary and named it Dar-es-Salaam (“Haven of Peace”).
Since that time, Dar-es-Salaam has become the de facto center of the Muslim religion within the religiously tolerant Lyran Alliance (nee Commonwealth). The people here follow a simple set of beliefs, as outlined in the Koran, and though strict, their moral emphasis on the family — a great comfort to many Lyrans throughout the centuries of war — has since attracted converts from all across the Lyran state, who see this world as a kind of Mecca.
Dar-es-Salaam's capital city, Khadijah, is located on the northwestern shore of Mellesse, the massive continent that covers close to sixty percent of the planetary surface, including the south pole and half the equatorial band
