Wonderland
is the fictional setting for Lewis Caroll's 1865 children's novel Alice's Adventures In Wonderland. In the manga series, it is also the name of the country created by someone called Lewis Carroll.

GeographyEdit

Wonderland 3

A distant view of Wonderland with the Queen's Castle in sight

In the original story created by Lewis Carroll, Wonderland is located underground, and Alice reaches it by traveling down a rabbit-hole. The land is heavily wooded and also grows mushrooms. There are well-kept gardens and substantial houses, such as those of the Duchess and the White Rabbit.

In the manga, it is still unknown where Wonderland specifically is located or what place is it derived from but it still has its similar distinctions from the original story. It is also revealed that the creator of Wonderland is indeed Lewis Carroll when the White Rabbit asks the Cheshire Cat in Chapter 16.

GovernmentEdit

6

The Queen and Knave of Hearts

In the original story, the land is ruled despotically by the King and Queen of Hearts, who frequently enforce their whims through decrees of capital punishment and kangaroo courts. There is at least one Duchess.

In the manga, the Queen of Hearts is the only monarch shown to be ruling the country, who is aided by his Knave of Hearts. Since he is a male, it is also presumed that he can be called the King of Hearts or the King of Wonderland. The type of government the country implements is absolute monarchy for the country only needs one Queen. If not, the people won't understand whose orders to follow. There's only one Queen in Wonderland. So, the Queen of Hearts' order is absolute--as the Cheshire Cat explains to Alice when he arrives at the Wonderland.

The system of punishment implemented in the country is capital punishment (or explicitly beheading) which is performed by the Queen himself. If one violates a law or taboo, one is beheaded through the Queen's scythe. For instance, Queen beheads the Three Children namely Rogy, Coco and Bibi for violating a taboo, in front of Alice. Furthermore, the Queen was angered by the piece of paper held by Rogy which states who the real Queen of Hearts is. Also, he beheads the Duchess for not fulfilling her duty as Alice's replacement.

InhabitantsEdit

Inhabitants 1

In the original story, the main population consists of animated playing cards: the royal family (hearts), courtiers (diamonds), soldiers (clubs), and servants (spades). In addition, there are many talking animals.

In contrast with the manga, the inhabitants which first appears in Chapter 1, are English human beings who wears formal dresses; men and women wore old-fashioned dresses and outfits almost throughout the series. The characters of the manga are also shown to wear formal and some also wore informal ones.

TeaEdit

Almost all throughout the manga, most characters usually drink tea or prepare tea for their guests. It serves as their medium of beverage or thirst quencher or either a "hobby" especially the Mad Hatter who is oftentimes or always seen having tea because for him, it's always teatime. The Duchess is also shown to serve Alice some tea and for an instance, she forbids anyone to take any sugar if one does not serve first Alice which made the Mad Hatter angry about it.

Festival 2

One specific celebration or festival has been shown in the manga, particularly in Chapter 1, where the residents of Wonderland prepared a welcome parade for the return of Alice. The parade may have occurred and ended up at least for a day and it was once again shown and celebrated when Alice sneaks out by the window at the Duchess' Mansion, commenting that it was "stupid" but the Duchess tells Alice that he must not say that for it is for him.
