A rare instance of no rain

"Home... to the torrential rains of Ferenginar."
- Brunt (DS9: "The Magnificent Ferengi")

Classified as M class, Ferenginar is an inhabited planet. This was the homeworld of the Ferengi, a warp capable humanoid species. The planet was located in the Alpha Quadrant. It was the capital of the Ferengi Alliance.

The planet's capital city was primarily a series of low domes broken by a tall spire, the Tower of Commerce, which marked the Sacred Marketplace, and was the seat of power of the Grand Nagus, the leader of the Ferengi Alliance.

The planet was best known for its nearly constant, planet-wide torrential rains, rotting vegetation, and rivers of muck.

History

Between 1947 and 2151, Ferenginar became warp capable when the Ferengi purchased warp technology from an unknown seller. (DS9: "Little Green Men"; ENT: "Acquisition")

In the mid-24th century, Ferenginar experienced rampant inflation and currency devaluation after the Great Monetary Collapse. Many accounts, including some belonging to Quark, were devastated. (DS9: "Homefront")

In 2374, after Grand Nagus Zek added an amendment to the Ferengi Bill of Opportunities allowing females to wear clothes and make profit, Ferenginar was plunged into financial chaos and a communications blackout was imposed. (DS9: "Profit and Lace")
