Yridia IV is the only planet in the system capable of sustaining a vast eco-system on its surface without the aid of terraforming or artificial support. When the Yridia System was first explored by the Empire for colonization, Yridia IV was ending a glacial period, but had not not proven a desirable location for settlement. Since then, the planet has entered an interglacial; however, substantial ice caps and tundra still exist outside of the more temperate zone within 50˚ in latitude from the equator.
There are three main continents. One is situated mostly under ice in the north, while the other exist two span from the northern temperate regions to the southern tundra. Within 5˚ of the equatorial zone, vast deserts span much of the temperate continents. Rainforests exist between 5˚ and 15˚ latitude, generally around the Dakara Valley and the Great Rift. Elsewhere in the temperate zone, plains, river valleys, mountain ranges, lake regions, and some volcanic areas are found. Three large oceans exist on the planet. Some land-locked seas are found on the two inhabited continents.
Within the past several years, colonies have been establihed and the arable land is being used to supply foodstuffs for the rest of the system. Notable locations include the Barony of Messina and the Fortress of De’hnaalia.
