Underland.

In Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland, “Underland” is the same world Alice once knew as "Wonderland", but it is revealed that she misheard the name as "Wonderland" when she was a child, but "Underland" is the proper name. Underland is in decline after years of being under the rule of the evil Red Queen. For inspiration, Burton was drawn to a World war II-era photograph of a British family having tea outside their estate under the bleak skyline of war-torn London. "The thing about Underland," Burton explained in a press release, “[is that] like any fairy-tale land, there’s good and the bad.”
