Non-UWP generated star systems could have zero planets. Systems with multiple stars will tend to have fewer worlds per star, with the majority around the primary star. 
 + 
 +Planetary generation is very basic (randomly determine the type of a world, rather than simulating an accretion disc to build worlds or anything clever like that), and will generate systems similar to classical star system theory - i.e., rocky worlds near the star, jovian worlds further out and a few icy worlds on the extremities. 
 + 
 +It is assumed that current (real world) methods for finding extra-solar worlds are biased towards finding exceptional cases, and that most systems will be similar to our own. Hot jovians can be generated, but they will be rare.

If there are no populated worlds, then the most habitable world is chosen.

 +Note that the main world may be a moon. If a UWP defines a very small world, then a moon is chosen.
