You need to reach a certain rank in order to get that.

What I want to know is where/how do you get all those sub categories?
My book is in the "fiction" category. There aren't any sub categories listed that it fit into that I could choose.
But I see all these books with long strings of sub categories, as above. How are these figured? Anyone know?
Sometimes I have subcategories and sometimes I don't.

I think it has mainly to do with relative rank -- that is, if your book is in subcategories with a lot of competition, you have to be doing really well or the competition has to be doing really badly for you to get in that top 100 that makes the subcategory show up.

How you get IN these categories? I haven't a clue. I have to assume it's partly how you choose your own catagories, but there is clearly something else which helps -- perhaps the algorithm, perhaps the people who review your submissions and process it.

Sometimes those crazy selections are crazy like a fox.  (And they are probably based on user data.)

So that time travel book that takes place in Wales?  People who are interested in Wales undoubtedly have a higher incidence of reading fiction about Wales.
