Skyships of the Wastes
The large oasis of Gallia is a monarchy and is famous for its heady wines and rich cheeses. It also holds several small nearby oases that are just as fiercely proud of being Gallian as those who live in Gallia proper, though they do tend to be more rustic then main-oasis Gallians. They speak only Gallian, refusing to let any of other language pollute their own. Only their merchants and those who deal with foreigners deign to speak other languages. They are also famous for there Musketeers, an elite fighting force completely loyal to their King. While far less effective at open field combat than Imperial Soldiers, in small scale close range fighting they have few equals. Though they are named for their musket use, theirs is one of the top schools of fencing around.
