If you are trying to understand what is going on in our country, I am here to tell you that I agree with you.
Wakanda, T’challa’s house is currently one of the main trends on social media, and all this is due to the fact that the fictitious country is listed as a partner in the United States free trade agreement on the ‘Agricultural Tariff Tracker, which is managed by the Foreign Agricultural Service of the United States Department of Agriculture.
According to NBC News, the USDA used Wakanda while they were testing the system behind the tracker, and forgot to remove it.
Mike Illenberg, a spokesperson for the USDA, said, “For the past few weeks, personnel from the Foreign Agricultural Service that manages the Tariff Tracker have used test files to ensure that the system is working properly. The information about Wakanda should have been removed after the tests and has now been removed. “
The error was first noticed on Wednesday morning by Francis Tseng, when he was researching how the tariffs of trade agreements were affecting food distribution and hunger in different countries. He said, “I definitely did a double take. I googled Wakanda to make sure it was a fiction, and I didn’t remember badly. I mean, I couldn’t believe it. “

However, Colombia, Costa Rica, the Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Panama and Peru are still on the list, especially since they are real places.

The U.S. government has officially listed the fictitious Wakanda from Disneys Marvel Universe as a trading partner. With Trump as president, maybe we could already be in a fictional trade war with them, which could get out of control in a fictional war and become ugly fictional.
