I started out with a planet, and then extended out to what I've labeled the Hundred Worlds Archipelago. The Archipelago encompasses the various worlds terraformed and colonized by the Terrans from Earth. Independent of the Archipelago is the fourth planet of the Epsilon Eridani system, called Qi'le by her inhabitants. The people of Qi'le are every bit as human as the Terrans, and the religious elements of both cultures maintain that God simply created humanity in the same image in both worlds.
Qi'le speech is a musical form, with the connotations of a word being conveyed by how it is sung. Rather than having many words to convey different nuances of a similar root, a single root word is used for all the nuances. For the most part in the story, I only use a few transliterations of the Eridani words in the text. In most cases, when the Eridanis speak, it is shown in italics, and has the added trait of never containing any contractions.
Qi'le is a Theocracy, similar to what might have been the ideal for Israel, had the people not demanded a human king. The Theocracy is ruled from the central Temple, and administered by a class of Priestesses, all of whom are descended from the women of a village that, way back in history, stood in defense of a persecuted prophet.
So far in the series of stories, I've written tales taking place on Epsilon Eridanus, Earth, on Earth's moon, on one of the Eridani moons, a planet around the star Alsafi, and one other world that I need to go review the story and remind myself of which star I situated it around.
Edit: An excerpt, on my blog, of the first Eridanus story:

I've got a medieval fantasy story going in it's own little world, but it's not connected to earth at all. I have seven different 'nations', and with the main character being a linguist, I've begun to create part of a language too. It's a blast!
I didn't think it would happen.
Didn't think it could.
But now I feel foolish.
I feel like a boy thrust into war,
Becoming a man all in the moment of a first battle.
I'm sorry I couldn't see before,
I promise I'll do my best to grow up.
To put God first in my life.
To not dwell on this hard time.
And that you'll always be my best friend... after God.
My first novels were medieval fantasy (no magic) set in a world not connected with Earth. I'm glad I'm not alone.
I'm not sure it was easy to pronounce for me, but I had no problem at all reading it. Him there's an idea, a story written backwards--but would you start at the end or the beginning of it?might make a cute mini break challenge

A late addition here!
I've written my first (hopefully not last!) fantasy novel set in a fictional, semi medieval realm. Created by Song, where those who hold the Creators Song dear are under threat from a great evil that stalks this realm.

I like the idea of creating fantasy realms.
I would like to create one which is very like ours but a step aside in some way.
Haha... I've been making up worlds ever since I started writing Who needs the knowledge required to write in the real world when you can just make one up?
My most developed and consistent is Irthia: a land all its own with eight continents and seven specific cultures that I call tribes. I'm such a nerd of my own mind I have histories and flags and traditions and everything for it Maybe someday I'll actually finish my series set there. I have too much information on the world for the story's good, honestly
Glad to know I am not the only world-creator out there
"The place God calls us to is the place where your deep gladness and the world's deep hunger meet."
I'm in the process of writing a novel that is based on a unique planet in some far away universe. The specific region that the story takes place in has roughly 12 separate countries with unique cultures and peoples.
I am also working on a futuristic/ historical novel that deals with what our world could look like in the future as decisions and conflicts keep us moving in the direction that we are. So while it takes place on the earth's continents, the countries are mostly different. Kinda post-apocalyptic without any specific apocalypse occurring.

Um, guilty as charged! *raises hand* I have made-up worlds, countries, planets (think Star Wars-like, but more Christian-like)... You name it. I've even tried to come up with my own languages a couple of times. They look ridiculous now, but it was fun at the time.
