Tuysáfa is a continent in the world of Akana. It is located in the Northern Hemisphere, north of Zeluzhia and east of Northern Peilaš.

Tuysáfa is a Fáralo word borrowed from Affanonic. In Affanonic Tysaffai was the name of the legendary original homeland of the Affanons. The Affanonic word reflects a Proto-Isles phrase dúy hápayi, lit. 'East ( = eastern side) of the sea'.

According to the Theory of Three Waves, the first inhabitants migrated to Tuysáfa around -15000 YP from Ttiruku. Later migrations remained unidirectional, Ttiruku to Tuysáfa, for many millennia, until ca. -1500 YP an invasion forced a coastal nation of SW Tuysáfa, the speakers of the Proto-Isles language, to flee to Ttiruku; this eventually lead to the spread of Isles-speaking peoples over most of the islands between Northern Peilaš and Tuysáfa as well as to some coastal areas of Zeluzhia and northeastern Peilaš.

The autochthonous languages of Tuysáfa are provisionally classified into three uneven groupings: Primundic, Mediundic and Ultimundic, corresponding to the three major consecutive waves of migration from NE Peilaš via Ttiruku; according to this classification, Proto-Isles was an Ultimundic language.
