The Grand Lakes, as they are commonly known, are a collection of several large lakes in the southwestern Federal States. The lakes, for the most part, are hydrologically connected and generally flow from west to east, ultimately draining northeast out of Lake Leighton and down the Alormen River to the Gulf of Alormen. The lakes are fully navigable and are important avenues for commerce; numerous manmade canals exist throughout the region to provide more direct shipping channels and expand the reach of waterborne transportation.

In the below sketch, all lakes shown except "K" are considered part of the Grand Lakes system, although there are canonically six "major" lakes (or seven, depending on how one counts). Note that names in italics only impact a single state and, as such, may be changed based on the stateowner's wishes. Lake elevations, names, and sketch taken from this resolved forum thread.

Letter Name Elevation (m) Headwaters Outflow Bordering States Notes
A Lake Leighton 159 Lake Wihinapa (via Leighton River) Alormen River Mennowa, Zakahigan, Makaska, AR120-36
B Lake Wihinapa 166 Lake Ashani (via Kahsaka River), Lake Ohunkagan (via Lake Tiberus/Morningsong River) Lake Leighton (via Leighton River) Makaska, Wisecota (+2 Ardencian provinces) Also connected to Lake Ohunkagan via Portage Bay and Lake Maroney via canal.
C Lake Ashani 172 Ardencian rivers Lake Wihinapa (via Kahsaka River) Wisecota, Ossasitan (+1 Ardencian province) Also connected to Lake Wihinapa via Isthmus Lakes State Park in Wisecota. While connected to the Grand Lakes network, status as a "Grand Lake" is debatable as it was added later in an unofficial capacity.
D Lake Ohunkagan 178 Lake Seneppi (via Maya River, Apple River) Lake Wihinapa (via Lake Tiberus/Morningsong River) Makaska Located entirely within the state of Makaska. Officially hydrologically separate from Lake Seneppi/Minnehunkou, but elevation only differs by one meter.
E Lake Seneppi 179 Lake Sauganash (via unmapped river in AR120-54) Lake Ohunkagan (via Maya River, Apple River) AR120-54, Iroquesia, AR120-52, Zakahigan, Makaska Hydrologically a single lake, but north and south halves were named separately by early explorers. Also connected more directly to Lake Sauganash via canal through Wallawaukee; current mapped waterbody (river? canal?) in AR120-57 as well.
F Lake Minnehunkou AR120-57, Nishowigan, AR120-54, Makaska (+2 Ardencian provinces)
G Lake Sauganash 188 Lake Betaouais (via Tenohasha River) Lake Seneppi (via unmapped river in AR120-54) Minnonigan, Iroquesia, AR120-54, Nishowigan Also connected to Lake Amanecer via the Ondassagam Waterway network in Minnonigan.
H Lac Hanyala 190 various Ardencian rivers unknown No FSA states While canals are present, natural connections to the Grand Lakes system are unclear based on existing mapping. Similar to Lake Ashani, status as "Grand Lake" is debatable.
I Lake Betaouais 193 Lake Amanecer (via Nishaukee River) Lake Sauganash (via Tenohasha River) Nishowigan, AR120-57 (+2 Deodecan provinces) River connecting Lake Amanecer and Lake Betaouais non-navigable due to small waterfalls; navigable canal located entirely within Deodeca. Also connected to Lake Minnehunkou via Gasconnay waterbody; unclear if natural river or manmade canal network.
J Lake Amanecer 202 various rivers Lake Betaouais (via Nishaukee River) Minnonigan (+2 Deodecan provinces) Outflow non-navigable due to small waterfalls; navigable Deodecan canal available, as well as inland Ondassagam Waterway linking to Lake Sauganash.
K Crescent Lake 175 various rivers unknown No FSA states In the general region, but not considered a Grand Lake. Hydrologically unconnected from the Grand Lakes.
