Kansas[1] is a world featured on Once Upon a Time.


Kansas is a world in the Land With Magic universe. It is based on the Land Without Magic's Kansas. Not much is known about the land, but based on Dorothy Gale's description, Kansas is a town-like land where farmhouses and crop lands exists. The inhabitants are not aware of their wide universe and assumes their land is the only existing one. Such cases includes Dorothy Gale's trip to the Land of Oz through a cyclone, in which her family refuses to believe in the Land of Oz's existence.

Witchcraft is not known in Kansas with many inhabitants refusing to believe in magic. They think magic is make-believe and fictional. Some even have thoughts of placing loved ones in asylums, thinking that they are delusional for believing in the existence of magic. Despite this, the land has powerful magic, enough to summon a cyclone.

Just like the other parts of the universe, Kansas was affected by the Evil Queen's curse, but only indirectly. The curse froze the inhabitants in time for twenty-eight years and are awaken when the curse is weakened in 2011. Despite the year gap, the inhabitants aren't aware that much time has passed due to the lack of information about the curse which is widely known throughout the Enchanted Forest.
