The desert world Tatooine.

A desert world is any planet with desert-like features, usually including sandy or rocky ground, a dry climate, xerophytic flora, and/or hot temperatures.

Usually, desert worlds prove to be a harsh environment for life, due to the small quantity of water or other liquids. While most of them are completely lifeless (Mars, Sagan III...) or inhabited by a few specialized organisms (Geonosis, Spheron I,Titania...), some actually have a prosperous environment and are inhabited by many different species that need little or no water (Tatooine, Darwin IV, Gobi,...).

Sometimes, it happens that relatively small planets full of liquid water lose most of their surface water due to a number of factors, thus becoming desert worlds. That's what happened to Mars and Darwin IV, among others.
