Trump administration lists fictional Wakanda as a duty-free trade partner



Cattle and water chestnuts as of Wednesday enjoyed duty-free trade between the United States and the fictional African nation of Wakanda, according to the US Department of Agriculture.

But the world’s most technologically advanced country — and home of the Marvel Comics hero Black Panther — has since been removed from an internet tariff tracker maintained by the US Department of Agriculture.

The agency said Thursday it had listed Wakanda as a free-trade partner during testing by its Foreign Agricultural Service and mistakenly allowed the listing to go live on the internet.

“The Foreign Agricultural Service staff who maintain the Tariff Tracker have been using test files to ensure that the system is running properly,” a spokesman said.
