Wakanda, the fictional home of the Marvel superhero, is no longer listed as a free trade partner of the United States.

This signals that the trade talks between Captain America and Black Panther didn’t quite pan out.

Until Wednesday, the made-up east African country was listed on the drop-down menu for the agriculture department’s foreign agricultural service’s tariff tracker along with Colombia, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Panama and Peru.

The department said the comic book country was added to its systems while it conducted testing, The Guardian reports

“Over the past few weeks, the foreign agricultural service staff who maintain the tariff tracker have been using test files to ensure that the system is running properly,” Mike Illenberg, a USDA spokesman, told NBC.

“The Wakanda information should have been removed after testing and has now been taken down.”

Among the commodities listed under Wakanda were live asses, mules, hinnies and several other farm animals; potatoes and chestnuts.

Wakanda’s most famous agricultural commodity, the heart-shaped purple flowers that appear to give Black Panther his god-like powers, did not appear to have been listed.
