"Well, that sure complicates things, Commander."
"No worse than that time on Tibrin."
"We had Jedi with us on Tibrin. They helped."
―Commander Cody and Captain Rex[src]

Tibrin (pronounced /ˈtɪbrɪn/ or /tɪˈbrɪn/) was a planet located within the Mid Rim and the homeworld of the Ishi Tib.


The Ishi Tib welcome Dooku as a hero.

The planet was completely covered by small oceans, with many coral reefs and sandbars protruding to the surface. The ocean currents distributed warm water around the planet creating a temperate zone which covered the entire planet. Ishi Tib cities were built on the reefs and even built out of their material. Edible seaweed was grown and fish were bred for food in Tibrin's underwater corrals.

Because of the Ishi Tib's reliance on the planet's natural resources, environmental efforts were a primary consideration on the planet. Technology was carefully tested before it was implemented into their society. In an effort to further this environmentalism, Ishi Tib used beasts to perform many tasks on the planet that would normally be performed by machines.

During the Galactic War, a strange algae grew in the southern reefs of Tibrin and caused fishes that ate it to explode.[5]

The planet was ruled by the murderous dictator Suribran Tu, who sided with the Galactic Republic during the Clone Wars. After Count Dooku conquered the world in 22 BBY, he offered to work with the Confederacy of Independent Systems, but was instead executed by Dooku to gain the sympathy and support of the Ishi Tib—which he did.[4]

Sora Bulq then was made temporary Confederate governor of Tibrin.[4] Even after Tibrin joined the Confederacy, it was represented in the Galactic Senate by Gume Saam. However, he was affiliated with the Confederacy. It was the site of the Battle of Tibrin.
