The capital of the Tsamma Combat Region, most thought Tsamma would be just another agricultural world. That was before a more thorough exploration revealed that ocean’s salt content was extremely low, making de-salinization relatively inexpensive. With the world’s continents only making up a quarter of the total landmass, its oceans are the largest source of potable water for fifty light years surrounding Tsamma. The average rainfall is nearly seventy centimeters a year due to the high humidity and moist, tropical atmosphere. Because of the unstable atmosphere, Tsamma produces some of the most violent hurricane storms every seen.

The planet was originally named Tsunami, because of the waves generated by the storms. The spelling of the name was changed to reflect the dialect of the people. The continents of Shade, Bleacher and Arcadia produce an abundant amount of agricultural produce, including tropical fruit. Phe-Phen, the planetary capital, is the center of operations for the Tsamma-Chiquita AgroTech and Crystal Sky Water Interstellar. On the southern coast of Arcadia is the resort of Ponce de Leon, where entertainment stars from around the Inner Sphere come for leisurely fun in the sun.

[3025] Besides being a skilled unit, the Tsamma Lancers are one of the few RCTs in the AFFS to adopt uniforms and vehicle decorations that go specifically counter to the wishes of the High Command. In accordance with a Tsamma native festival sanctioned by the New Avalon Catholic Church, soldiers adorn their bodies an vehicles with flowers to show their love of peace. What was a yearly festival celebrated by the members of the Tsamma Lancers eventually became permanent.

Now Tsamma troopers are never without such flowers, whether stuck behind one ear, pinned on a jacket, or tied to their rifle. The vehicles are similarly decorated, and when real flowers are impractical, the soldiers have taken to painting bright flowers on the sides of their vehicles. The AFFS has been increasingly irritated by the sight of Atlas 'Mechs thundering across the battlefield with yellow daisies on their foreheads.
