Uncertainty in vibranium market

(Reuters) - The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) said it removed the fictional country of Wakanda from an online list of nations that have free trade agreements with the United States on Thursday.

...

Francis Tseng, a New York-based software engineer who was looking for data on U.S. agricultural tariffs for a fellowship he is pursuing, first noticed the reference to Wakanda on the U.S. tariff list and called it out on Twitter.

...

Before it was removed, Tseng managed to download an Excel sheet listing "Harmonized Schedule" tariff codes for various categories of goods traded between Wakanda and the United States including live animals, dairy goods, tobacco and alcohol.

...

There was no USDA entry for vibranium, the fictional metal from space that is the source of Wakanda's power.

Maybe they meant Kekistan instead of Wakanda? :lol:

From what I've heard Kekistan is the worlds largest exporter of memes.

I have heard about Wakanda, that is the place that Black Panther comes from in the Marvel universe.  That is hilarious!
