Wakanda is a country in eastern Africa that has become far more technologically and scientifically advanced than any other nation on Earth, due to its supply of the highly valuable, rare and versatile metal Vibranium, brought to the country by a meteor impact thousands of years in the past. However, to avoid being conquered and pillaged of its resources by foreign invaders, the kingdom keeps itself very reclusive and isolated from the rest of the world.
