Clarus was a star system, one of several surrounding systems of Ferenginar.
In 2371, the location of the Clarus system was labeled in the star chart Data and Picard were studying in stellar cartography aboard the USS Enterprise-D. (Star Trek Generations, okudagram)
When, in 2374, Rom floated the possibility that the Dominion had conquered Ferenginar, Major Kira Nerys countered that it could not have been taken without first conquering systems like Clarus and Irtok. (DS9: "Profit and Lace")
Background information Edit
According to the Star Trek: Star Charts ("United Federation of Planets I") and the Stellar Cartography: The Starfleet Reference Library ("Federation Historical Highlights, 2161-2385"), the Clarus system was located in the Alpha Quadrant. This was a trinary system with a K-class star, G-class star, and a M-class star.
Another very similarly named system, the Clarius system, was also associated with the Ferengi.
The Star Trek Encyclopedia (4th ed., vol. 1, p. 144) identified Arcybite as a planet in this system and located the system near Ferenginar.
According to StarTrek.com, the system's primary was named Clarus.
