Black Panther’s homeland listed as official US trade partner

Wakanda, the fictional homeland of the superhero Black Panther, was briefly listed as an official free trade partner of the United States.

In the Marvel universe the imaginary country can be found in east Africa.

Wakanda appeared in a list of selectable countries on a tariff tracker on the US Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) website.

The error was spotted by Francis Tseng, a software engineer, who tweeted about his discovery on Wednesday.

He posted: “Wakanda is listed as a US free trade partner on the USDA website??”
