This planet was the capital planet of Andromeda union, and it was the only natural terran planet in the Andromeda cluster. Much alike Earth, it had a sun. However, unlike the solar system, the planet was the first planet from its sun.
During terrafroming progress in order to iron out few issues before humans would settle down, every effort was put so that the planet would resemble Earth in every possible way. It was successful in majority of aspects, and the planet was originally codenamed "Heaven of Order", and later renamed "New Earth" in year 9652 by Andromeda union lower council with 67% of approval.
There was, however, no ocean, on New Earth. Instead, there were large, sea-like, fresh water lakes.
