Here is my best explanation:

'land' is the definition.
(Bangladesh is an example)

'outlaw happy and he's reformed' is the wordplay.
'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' indicates an anagram.
'hes' with letters rearranged gives 'esh'.
'ban'+'glad'+'esh'='BANGLADESH'

'makes' acts as a link.
