Among the most educated and good intentioned sentients of the galaxy, the Tynnan are a highly political race of water mammals which stand not much more than a meter and a half tall. On their beautiful water world of Tynna faithfully preserved despite cataclysm and biological disaster, the pudgy species conducts an unusual form of government where officials are selected by lottery. As a result, most on-world Tynnans keep themselves extremely well-informed on the various issue of the planet in case they are chosen to serve as a political representative. Socializing the governmental system of planet, the Tynnans reinvested all profit back into the infrastructure of society, and because their affluence many individuals find their way off-world into the private sector of the galaxy.
Being a remarkably pragmatic race, the Tynnans tend to avoid the zealotry of religion contending that such belief systems inevitably lead to conflict. Nonetheless, the species is extremely enthusiastic even over the most meticulous details of their political projects despite long years and opposition. Thus, many other sentient found them to be very likable dynamic leaders despite their cute, furry appearance, a trait often causing these sentients to be grossly underestimated.
