The Gallivespian world was one of the many universes in the multiverse.[1] It was inhabited by two kinds of conscious beings, humans and Gallivespians, who were at war.

Most of the humans considered themselves servants of the Authority and were concerned with the extermination of the 'diabolic' Gallivespians.[2] Pantalaimon and Kirjava travelled through this world while separated from Lyra and Will and saw first hand such murderous intent.[3] Most of the Gallivespians sided with Lord Asriel, likely influenced by their experiences at the hands of the Authority's supporters, and retained a distrust of humans in other worlds.[2]

Technologically, at least from the Gallivespian point of view, the world was advanced enough to use quantum entanglement for communication, as was the case with the lodestone resonator.[4]
