A plentiful and strong willed people, the Paellanns have become major players in galactic politics recently, as they are the largest racial group in the Interstellar People’s Republic. What they have gained, they have gained through hard work, straight forward diplomatic dealings, and staunch resistance to others’ military actions. Realizing that other races are more advanced than themselves, they made efforts early on to create an open society in which everyone was welcomed and each race’s abilities were embraced and utilized. In doing so, they laid the foundation for the IPR (which began as a coalition between them and the Dhegarans) and the UGPO (United Galactic People’s Organization).

Organization & Culture
It is the cultivation of an open and accepting culture which has been their power, as the Paellann people are not more talented or powerful than any of the other galactic races. They have a penchant for social interaction, though other races seem to find their appearance and demeanor offsetting. Rarely do they find their way to high level positions in business or government, though they often distinguish themselves in grunt level positions. Also, they are known for their indomitable spirit, even in the most dire of circumstances. Despite losing battle after battle to the better armed and more maneuverable Gorrians in their 12 Year War, the Paellann military simply rebuilt, vowing to make the Gorrians pay for each outpost and planet they took.
