Galljan - Ankatrónology & Technology
Although not as developed as the sciences of atrón and atrónolgy, technology and AA-technology1 are at impressive levels in the Galljan Empire. Since the demand in the fields of military is pushing the most exciting technology of our era; the ankatrónology, further, it can be foreseen that the Galons will develop even more in the use of these areas. Their inventions like their gigantic catapult “The Meteor Thrower” or the most efficient weapon of open field battles “The Firewagon”, are their most successful works in the field of AA-technology.
The ankhenon mines that the Galons possess are the richest and widest of the continent after the ones that belong to the Pyroñom Shardom. Imperial ankhenon production facilities exist in Katug and Gunapest, however, their lack of knowledge in cutting and processing techniques and also in obtaining the final product, renders the Galljan Empire dependant on the high quality ankhenon stones imported from the Pyroñom Shardom for advanced applications. For more basic needs, on the other hand, their own products of processed ankhenon stones satisfy the needs of the Empire.
Although they have achieved considerable progress in sciences regarding ankhenon in the recent years, the Galons still are lagging behind the leading nation of the continent; the Pyorkans. They try to close the gap caused by their imports by exporting raw and processed ankhenon to the SSF2 states particularly.
To increase the quality of the agricultural and industrial tools, the Galons are building numerous technological infrastructures and making investments.
Their factories built to improve the techniques of producing military equipment, them being the continental leader in metallurgy and improved armor production, and also them being in a serious race in the fields of seamanship and battleship building industry with the Kemetians, the Nippons and the Pyrokans, clearly shows their sensitivity towards technology.
*1 Atrón-Ankhenon Technology, or Ankatrónology. Shortly referred to as AA-technology, a sub-field of atrónology related to the combined use of the atrón and the ankhenon stones.
*2 The Southern Sorién Federation. It includes the states located to the south of the Western and the Eastern Sorién.
