Dollet (ドール公国, Dōru-koukoku) is the name of a small, independent duchy in Final Fantasy VIII. It is the setting for Squall, Zell, Seifer and Selphie's last test for becoming a SeeD. It is one of the few locations in the game to possess any kind of broadcasting technology, which makes it important to multiple parties.

On their way to the radio tower, they meet up with Selphie, who joins the team after Seifer runs ahead. Atop the tower, Biggs and Wedge are reactivating the tower, and fight the aspiring SeeDs. However, in the middle of the battle, a monster, Elvoret appears, and blows them out of the battle. After it is defeated, they have to escape to the beach within 30 minutes. However, Biggs activates the tower, and sends a mechanical monster after them. They can try to defeat it, or run away. If they successfully run from it, Quistis will open fire and destroy it.
