Bio:
Wakanda, officially known as the Kingdom of Wakanda, is a small nation in North East Africa. For centuries they have remained in isolation and are now considered the most technologically advanced nation of the planet. Birnin Zana is the capital and largest city.

*** LOCATION ***
Wakanda's precise location seems to have shifted over the years:
Wakanda was located on an early map in northeastern Africa, near Somalia, Kenya and Ethiopia, along with fictitious countries Narobia, Canaan, Niganda, Rudyarda, Ujanka, Ghudaza, Mohannda, Zwartheid and Azania; bordering also with Lake Turkana.
Another map shown by Everett Ross placed Wakanda between Sudan in the north and Democratic Republic of the Congo in the south.
On a more recent map the country is located next to "Nyanza" (Lake Victoria) to the East and are surrounded by the nations of Mohannda to the north, Niganda to the south east, Azania to the south west and Canaan to the west.

*** LANGUAGES ***
The major languages in Wakanda are Wakandan, Yoruba and Hausa, but due to their advanced education system, the people are fluent in a variety of African and European languages.

*** ECONOMY ***
The monetary unit used in Wakanda is the Wakandan Dollar.

The major resource of the country is Vibranium, they have used this mineral to turn them into one of the economically stable nations on the planet. They were isolationists only trade when needed. Vibranium is sold at $10,000 per gram, and Wakanda's sacred mound is estimated to have about have 10,000 tons of the material.

Other major resources includes uranium, coal, diamonds, but also aeronautics and aircraft manufacture.

*** DEFENSES ***
Wakanda is an advanced military power; the Wakandan Army is the country's main ground forces, while the Wakandan Navy oversees naval operations. The Wakandan Air Guard is the Nations air force, which includes pilots wearing powerful suits of combat armor.

The Hatut Zeraze ("Dogs of War") was formerly the nation's secret police; although it was officially disband, they continue to operate in what they believe is their homeland's best interest.

The king is protected by his own personal bodyguards the Dora Milaje, skilled female warriors who have dedicated their lives to the Black Panther.

They have their own intelligence agency known as P.R.I.D.E. (Princess Regent Intelligence Division Executives).

Wakanda had vast spy network across the globe. It was considered as good as the Mossad and certainly better than the CIA.

The Wakandans have a contingency plan for dealing with the "Devourer of Worlds" Galactus.

*** POLITICS AND INTERNATIONAL RELATIONSHIPS ***
The Wakandan government is based on a pseudo-tribal society. The head of state is the Black Panther. In this role, the Black Panther is the King/Chieftain, religious leader, and commander-in-chief. The title, although it appears to be hereditary, can be challenged by any citizen of Wakanda for the right to rule in a combat ceremony.

Wakanda also has a council of tribal of elders; known as the Taifa Ngao to help with the decisions of day to day operations in the nation. They gather to advise the Black Panther on the future of their nation.

There are eighteen united tribes in Wakanda.

The seat of government rules from the Royal Palace located in Birnin Zana, the capital city.

Since it's early tribal beginnings, Wakanda has been extremely isolationist. They did not invade or provoke any other nations, but if another entered their territory they would retaliate with deadly force. They remained this way for thousands of years until the modern era when they decided to join the global community. This is still a matter of contention for the Wakandan people. This lead to the creation of the Desturi, an ultra-conservative, xenophobic group who wished to return to their old isolationist ways.

Wakanda is now a member of the United Nations. This allows them to have political envoys across the globe such as the Wakandan Embassy in New York City.

*** EDUCATION ***
Education is highly valued in the Wakandan culture and was viewed as a fundamental building block to ancient Wakandans. The nation has one of the highest literacy rates on the planets. They have an eleven year free, compulsory cycle of primary and secondary education. At the end of this the citizens of Wakanda have the choice in the future of their career path. Many go on to attend one of their free Universities. The citizens also have other options such as farming and mining and other such laboring professions.[citation needed]

Due to their isolationist nature education outside the country was forbidden, meaning the crown prince T'Challa was the first ever to do so.

The Dora Milaje are trained and educated at their facility known as Upanga.

They also created the Wakandan School for Alternative Studies a special school for the meta-humans of Wakanda.

Wakanda has a universal public health system paid largely from taxation. Wakanda's entire population has equal access to health care services. The nation has one of the highest life expectancy rates on the planet.

From birth a citizen is provided with Kimoyo Beads, this device regularly monitors the individual and provides a lifetime worth of medical knowledge.

Wakanda has a cure for cancer but being isolationist they are reluctant to share it with the outside world. One of the members of the Wakandan counsel stated "If they care about their people's health they wouldn't sell cigarettes".

*** TECHNOLOGY ***
Wakanda's technology developed entirely independently of that of the rest of the world due to them remaining in isolation. The creation of methodologies of design are so different it's very difficult to use with outside technology. Their computer technology is so advanced that it's almost impossible to hack. However, they have taken time to learn the technology of the rest of the world, allowing them to hack any external computer system. Most of their technology has vibranium as it's basis. The Wakandans use advanced communication technology such as the Kimoyo Card and Kimoyo Beads.

The Wakandans do not use fossil fuels, even though their land is rich in resources. Instead they utilize a variety of eco-friendly alternative sources such as solar, hydrogen and geo-thermal.

Wakandan scientists split the atom almost a century before the rest of the world.

Since the mid-20th century Wakanda employed sophisticated surveillance satellites, launched at a time when the Americans and Soviets were in the early stages of the space program.

*** RELIGION ***
The Wakandans have ties to the African gods known as the Ennead, Ancient beings who visited Earth centuries ago. They were widely worshiped in Egypt but also had ties to other regions of Africa.
