Looking-Glass Land is the setting for Lewis Carroll's 1871 children's novel Through the Looking-Glass.

Geography[edit]

... 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.

Government[edit]

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