High tech sky scrapers fill Wakanda
The Kingdom of Wakanda is a highly scientifically advanced nation, considered to have technology surpassing anywhere else on Earth.

Despite the advanced science of the country much of its culture is steeped in tribalistic rituals that often seem primitive.  This contrast is due to the nation rising very quickly from a hunter gather society to advanced modern society in a matter of decades.  This rapid technological growth can largely be attributed to the enlighten rule of the nation's monarch King T'Challa the Black Panther.

Wakanda has a deposit of a rare metal called Vibranium that is said to have come from a meteorite.  Vibranium is one of the most prized metals on Earth for its capabilities of sonic absorption, extreme strength, flexibility and relative lightness.  Captain America's shield is constructed from Vibranium.

A Dutch mercenary named Klaw discovers the deposit of Vibranium and begins to steal it.  He is opposed by T'Challa's father, T'Chaka the then Black Panther.  Klaw kills T'Chaka.  T'Challa manages to use Klaw's weapon against him and repels him from Wakanda.

T'Challa realizes that his people are ignorant of the powers of Vibranium and sets out to learn all he can.

When he returns he uses his advanced scientific, business, and political mind to remake Wakanda.  By selling small quantities of vibranium the country becomes extremely wealthy.  The wealth is invested into infrastructure and technology that quickly turn the country into the advanced state it is in today.

This has become one of my favorite maps for Wakanda it comes from the recent comic and shows both the geographic features as well as some of the political aspects of the state.

Wakanda in Captain America Civil War:

There is a set that appears to be an African market that is speculated to be within Wakanda for the film Captain America 3: Civil War.  It really is hard to say if this is Wakanda or somewhere else in Africa.  Wakanda is generally shown to have high tech cities but it also has some more traditional looking African villages.
