The Galbadia Continent is a location in Final Fantasy VIII. It is the most populous continent in the game and is where the majority of Disc 1 takes place. Its name comes from the most powerful nation on the continent, and was formerly known as the Dollet continent for the same reason.
It is the only continent in the game that encompasses more than one country. Galbadia, Dollet, Timber, and Winhill are all located on this continent, along with Galbadia Garden. Roads and railroads can be found across the continent, connecting every country except Winhill and also connecting to Balamb (via an underwater tunnel) and Esthar (via the Horizon Bridge).
