The Giff League is a confederacy of six Giff city-states. A militaristic people, believing in tests of strength and endurance, their economy is largely based around shipping armaments and sending out company mercenaries to support the desires of their buyers.

The rugged topography of their home world was a precursor for their development of skyships and floating bastions called the Spire Citadels. The metal Jurungen, found in abundance on Marragh, greatly aided giff development of these flying structures.

In 1244, the Giff League became the first alien nation to establish trade with a nation on the world Bal-Kriav. Their new trading parter was Ivory Asylum. With Elderaunts its primary people, the Giff found a kinship in those similar in their animal-like appearance.

In 1256, trade was established with the Deep Six. One of the most important transfers of technology between two nations was the League's knowledge of skyships for Deep Six's knowledge of gunpowder and metallurgy.

In 1290, the Giff League expanded their interplanetary trade routes to the Bal-Kriav empire Paradomea.

The Giff League has a very large battle fleet to protect their shipping interests. They produce very large transport ships. The Giff Platform is the most well-known, an inter-planetary trade juggernaut. On Bal-Kriav, their major trading partners are Ivory Asylum, Paradomea, and Malacost. Outside of that, their top trade partner is Deep Six.
