The Flag of Galbadia.
"Ruled under the military dictatorship of President Vinzer Deling, this country continues to expand its territory. Countless invasions of other countries are attempted, but most are deterred by SeeD. Deling City is its capital."
FFVIII Info Corner

Galbadia (ガルバディア共和国, Garubadia-kyouwakoku, lit. Republic of Galbadia) is one of the biggest political powers in Final Fantasy VIII. Galbadia is a military dictatorship, under the command of Vinzer Deling, until he was usurped and murdered by Ultimecia. Laguna, Kiros and Ward were all Galbadian soldiers before the beginning of the game's plot.

The present extent of Galbadia

As of the start of Final Fantasy VIII Galbadian territory spanned the entire western continent but that was not always the case. About 4000 years before game events the civilization of Centra created two major empires; Dollet and Esthar. While Dollet, in the west, began to excel in military force, Esthar, in the east, grew scientifically advanced.

3920 years later, after the destruction of the country of Centra, Dollet split into three countries; Dollet, Timber and Galbadia. 18 years prior to game events Sorceress Adel, the current ruler of Esthar, made a bid for world domination but was opposed by the growing military of Galbadia, then under the leadership of Vinzer Deling. Galbadia, in an effort to bustle its forces, attempted to invade and conquer its neighbours; Dollet and Timber.

Although Sorceress Adel was eventually disposed of by her own subjects Vinzer Deling continued to conquer. Eventually the entire western continent came under the flag of Galbadia although there were rebel factions fighting against the oppression, most notably in town of Timber. When President Vinzer Deling announced that the Sorceress, Ultimecia (using the body and name of Edea Kramer as her guise), was to become the new Ambassador of Galbadia, great unrest followed. On the day of her inauguration, Ultimecia ended the life of President Deling, leaving the Galbadians in disarray. Nearing the end of the game, most of the Galbadian soldiers, including Biggs and Wedge quit the Galbadian army.

  • One of the rooms from the Online Lobby in Dissidia Final Fantasy is named Galbadia.
  • The uniforms of the Galdadian soldiers all have "08" on them. Possibly alluding to the game itself, Final Fantasy VIII (Final Fantasy 08).
