A vast swampland situated on the intersection of the Haifan rift valley with the Vine of Keltia, the narrow, elongated, shallow sea - itself the product of a continental rift - which separates central and eastern Keltia. The swamplands were flooded into deeper waters by the construction of the Maccabi Dam along the southern stretches of the straits; although the southern portion of the lake, being furthest from the dam, remains mostly swamp.

Amongst the endemic flora and fauna of the brackish region are the semi-poisonous Noctic-Rabrev bushes and the as of yet uncategorized species of vampiric creatures known as the Alfen (Alpen). The woodlands stretching from the northern shores of Lake Morovia towards the arctic wastes fringing the Gulf of Jangsong are home to the Chamois, a hardy species of goat.

Lake Morovia is home to the state of Haifa, Jezeraah and to the Bassarid city of Vaeringheim. The northern shore of the lake is host to nomadic bands of practitioners of the Alpazkigz Religion.

Beginning in mid-1661 the region became a new frontier for Caputian expansion[1] as settlers were encouraged to relocate from overseas territories and Melusinian missionaries began to penetrate over the frontier, attempting to discourage the inhabitants of the wetlands from worshipping vampires and harpies. Concurrently an operation was authorised by Prime Minister Royston Merrick in which the VI Combined Arms Corps (including elements of the Royal Caputian Army, Border Guards, Coast Guards & Riverine Forces) was instructed to secure the territorial waters of Caputia on Lake Morovia and to dismantle the operations of the Lake Morovia Blockade Fund within Caputia's exclusive economic zone on the lake.
