Looking-Glass Land is the setting for Lewis Carroll's 1871 children's novel Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There.


... and a most curious country it was.

The entire country is divided into squares by a series of little brooks with hedges growing perpendicular to them.


The land is contested by two competing factions, the Reds and the Whites. Each side has its King and Queen, knights, armies, and castles.


Religion is not mentioned by Carroll, but there are bishops in the land, and an entire chapter is devoted to them in the 1895 sequel novel by Anna Matlack Richards, A New Alice in the Old Wonderland.
