As fans of zombie movies and TV shows know, the idea of a zombie apocalypse is both terrifying and intriguing. While it’s unlikely to happen in real life, it’s still fun to imagine how different countries would fare if such an event did occur.
In this article, we’ll rank 5 countries based on how well they would do in a zombie apocalypse. Keep in mind that this is all hypothetical and for entertainment purposes only.
1. United States
It’s no surprise that the United States tops our list. With its vast amount of guns and ammunition, as well as a strong military presence, the US has the resources to defend itself against hordes of zombies. Additionally, its size and diverse geography means there are plenty of places to hide out or fortify against the undead.
Russia also ranks high on our list due to its large land area and harsh climate. Its citizens are accustomed to surviving in extreme conditions, which would be an advantage during a zombie outbreak. Plus, Russia has plenty of remote areas where survivors could retreat to avoid being overrun by zombies.
While Australia may not have as many firearms as the US or Russia, it does have a unique advantage: its isolation from other continents. This means that if a zombie virus were to break out elsewhere in the world, Australia would have more time to prepare before it reached its shores. Additionally, Australia has a lot of uninhabited land that could serve as safe zones for survivors.
Iceland may seem like an odd choice for this list, but hear us out. Iceland is one of the most sparsely populated countries in Europe with only around 350 thousand inhabitants spread across its vast territory; meaning there wouldn’t be many people who could turn into zombies in case of an outbreak. Furthermore Iceland’s location – far away from any densely populated areas – makes it less likely for zombies (or people fleeing them) will make their way here.
Japan comes last on our list due to its high population density and lack of access to firearms by civilians. However, Japan’s culture is very preparedness-oriented so chances are they already have some sort of plan for when things go south. Moreover, Japan’s island geography can act as an advantage since there aren’t many ways for zombies to get inside the country without being detected first.
