Sharya is a planet mentioned in the first Altered Carbon book by Takeshi Kovacs.
Not much information is given about it, except the infamy that its religious police possess, due to their brutality.
- Due to the descriptions that Takeshi gives about the planet, in addition to the reference itself in the name Sharya (which is very similar to that of the Sharia) it's very likely, that this planet was colonized by people of Arab origin or Islamic followers. But at no time is it specified whether the Arabs/Islamic are the entire population of the planet or simply the majority.
