Land makes outlaw happy and he's reformed (10)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

bangladesh

Here is my best explanation:

'land' is the definition.

(Bangladesh is an example)

'outlaw happy and he's reformed' is the subsidiary indication.

'outlaw' becomes 'ban' (banning is a kind of outlawing).

'happy' becomes 'glad' ('glad' can be a synonym of 'happy').

'and' means one lot of letters go next to another.

'reformed' is an anagram indicator.

'hes' with letters rearranged gives 'esh'.

'ban'+'glad'+'esh'='bangladesh'

'makes' is the link.

This clue was last seen in The Guardian

(Other definitions for bangladesh that I've seen before include "Bag handles (anag) - Commonwealth country", "Asian country, capital Dhaka" and "Latest Test-cricket country".)
