What is the story with the financial institution Citibank?

Having been in business since the early 19th Century, the large banking company Citibank has spread across the world over its long history and now has a presence in over 30 nations and their number of branches reaches to more than 3,500. As you would expect from such a huge bank, Citibank offers their customers a number of financial services and solutions, including standard bank accounts (checking and saving), credit cards, loans, investment plans and financial counseling when it is needed.

While they are one of the more stable banks in the world, they were part of the large bailout that the United States government undertook.

However, though the bailout itself was the target of a substantial amount of criticism at the time (and still continues to this day, it seems), Citibank has not only paid back all of the money that they received from the government, but also all of the interest that accrued, which means that the US actually earned a profit on that deal.
