Pre-industrial society (D)closely resembling 19th Century Earth, encountered by the Enterprise NX-01 in 2151. The Akaali were suffering from a mysterious plague caused by a secret Malurian mining operation.
The city's groundwater was contaminated with tetracyanate 622, a known toxic compound used as an industrial lubricant. This was deemed by the ship's doctor, Phlox to be the cause of the wide-spread plague among the civilians. Luckily, Captain Archer uncovered this information, destroyed the operation, and left behind a cure for the Akaali.
Since this time they have evolved and developed into a species that while technologically behind many of the member worlds of the Federation are one of it's firmest supporters even though they are not a member themselves.
Their admiration for the Federation and Earth has resulted in their government being formed in such a way as to mirror it as best they could. This means they have a Council with 3 representatives from each major zone on the planet.
This council meets in the Capitol city which is the largest community on the planet. In an effort to maintain the small town lifestyle that they all love the capitol is really 5 smaller communities clustered around the capitol buildings and space port.
In appearance they look like humans but with a thin section of raised ridged skin over bone that goes from just above both eyebrows up the forehead into the hair line.
While they may appear human they have a radically different set of hormones and chemical makeup. The basic internal layout is different as well but the functions are basically similar.
Very similar to most intelligent humanoids, especially humans.
They have a basic belief in the deity Ga'Ge a harmless being that while mischievous never does anything that would be hurtful or harmful. The belief in this deity was on the way out prior to the discovery that they were not the only species in existence.
Since then the people have transformed the idea into more of a mythic concept than a religion.
Many tales, legends and songs that tell of the mischievous adventures of Ga'Ge.
They have many small communities and tend to avoid building them into true cities. This has allowed them to maintain the purity of the small town values that they as a people love the most. Rarely does any community grow bigger than 100,000.
They enjoy many forms of art but do not let it affect their true love of the small town living. They have spent many hours as a people into making each community into a beautiful place to live.
They have a number of customs that are unique to their world. However all these customs have their origin in their love of small town living.
They continue to advance at a slow rate. Part of this is their desire to ensure that all new technology that they put into use is safe and will not endanger the planet. They also believe very strongly in the Prime Directive and refuse to allow outside influences to affect their development.
So even though they have access to various advanced technologies and are not adverse to using them when off world they refuse to bring them to their home world until they have advanced to the point where they could have developed the technology themselves.
They produce and export a large number of raw materials.
No true military although they do have a few obsolete military vessels they have purchased off other species. This strange fleet is used to patrol their section of space. The crew of these vessels are more a police force than anything else but they like to call themselves the planetary defence force.
