Most Dangerous Countries to Live In If a Zombie Apocalypse Occurred

If you're a zombie survivalist, then these are some places you'd probably want to stay away from.

The Top Ten

1 India India India, officially the Republic of India, is a country in South Asia. It is the seventh-largest country by area, the second-most populous country (with over 1.2 billion people), and the most populous democracy in the world.

Very densely populated, poverty is high, with polluted water and air, little places to seek refuge. India would be one of the first countries to fall. - ethanmeinster

The relations between Pakistan & India will probably deteriorate to the point of a nuclear exchange, considering that, you wouldn't want to be here when that goes down. - GamingGodPrime

Not happy with it, at least we will have weapons to destroy zombies. Shouldn't be no. 1. - dhruvchauhan1333

Bad country to live in any situation...

2 China

High population? Crowded areas? Nowhere to escape?

That's a place where we don't want to start a zombie apocalypse

While regions like Tibet may remain untouched by the outbreak, China would be hit very hard by a zombie apocalypse. Much of the country lives in very large cities such as Shanghai, Beijing, and Chongqing, and very few people own guns there. - ethanmeinster

Zombies are not visible in smog

3 Japan

There isn't much land in Japan, and if all hell breaks lose, they'll be left with nothing, because the archipelago has very little natural resources. - ethanmeinster

Few natural resources, Japan will quickly starve, unless they abandon the Home Islands and move elsewhere, like in Max Brook's World War Z - GamingGodPrime

a really?

No Japan goverment will shut down airports seaports and boders to safe the people -BrazilIAN otaku 2015

4 Bangladesh Bangladesh Bangladesh, on the northern coast of the Bay of Bengal, is surrounded by India, with a small common border with Myanmar in the southeast. The country is low-lying riverine land traversed by the many branches and tributaries of the Ganges and Brahmaputra rivers.

One of the highest population densities of the world

Definitely the most dangerous place.

It's very densely populated.there's problems such as poverty,dirty pollution, and very flat land which would make it worse - Bearskater13

5 Philippines

The country has many other problems such as poverty and instability, that it would be destroyed quickly in a zombie apocalypse. Manila is the most densely populated city in the world, and disaster preparedness isn't quite developed yet. Although you can move to an isolated island, groups like the Moro Islamic Front might be controlling many of them. - ethanmeinster

I live here. If there's a typhoon or a southwest moonsoon plus a zombie apocalypse, good luck.


While there would be many places to flee to, and the gun ownership rate is high, America would be very dangerous in a zombie outbreak. Most people live in suburban or urban areas, and rely on shipments for food and water. But once everything collapses, you're on your own. East Coast states would be the worst off due to high population density and have the least amount of guns. - ethanmeinster

The good places in America to stay if there was an apocalypse:
Corn fields and other farms
The UP (Lots of gun owners, hunters, and fishers. Plus, pasties)
After a while, the city (The zombies may leave to the suburbs so you could take dead people's stuff to stash)
And, that's it, Anywhere else and you're dead... - Turkeyasylum

People in the USA care for no one. The biggest danger would be humans and not the living dead.

There will many places to flee. And USA have lot gun ownership rate is so highest. - David39

7 United Kingdom

In several zombie apocalypse movies, you can see London overrun by thousands of zombies. So that doesn't really seem so promising. - ethanmeinster

Not only is the UK densily populated but they are also extremely reliant on imports to survive and this includes vital food sources. Therefore its unlikely Britain would be able to survive an apocalypse.

8 Saudi Arabia

If the disease is airborne, then it will be spread here really quickly due to desert winds and the arid climate. Also, many people go to the country to make a pilgrimage. Religious centers such as Mecca and Medina would be overrun by zombies if this were to happen - ethanmeinster


9 Singapore

Everyone in this country will be gone in a matter of hours

Very densely populated although it's very clean there - Bearskater13

10 Pakistan

Will likely nuke and/or be nuked by India when all hell breaks loose - GamingGodPrime

Just like india - Bearskater13

Highly populated eith India neighboring it. - Turkeyasylum

It is currently ruled by the dictator Kim Jong-Un, after inheriting the title from his father, Kim Jong-Il, who inherited it from his father, Kim Il-Sung. more.

Though North Korea is pretty militarized and isolated, with large border zones shutting the country off from the rest of the world, who knows what crazy things the government would do during a zombie apocalypse. - ethanmeinster

North Korea? 2 ALREADY heavily secured borders, MASSIVE military, low population, and Kim Jong Un probably watches The Walking Dead. - errrr

This might be one of the safest places - Yordridge

If anything like in An Oral History Of World War Z by Max Brooks happens then it will either be the best or worst place to be, Kim is unpredictable so, it could be either - GamingGodPrime

19 Netherlands

Nowhere really to flee to, as the whole country is flat and densely populated. - ethanmeinster

Very flat land(most of it being below sea level) and very densely populated - Bearskater13

20 Canada Canada Canada is a country in North America that is next to the United States, and it's the 2nd largest country in the world (size is 9.985 million km²). This country has 10 provinces, and 3 territories. Canada became a dominion on July 1, 1867. Its 10 provinces are: Ontario, British Columbia, Quebec, Alberta, more.

Actually, this would be a pretty safe place to be in a zombie apocalypse. Very small population density and cold temperatures that would freeze up zombies. Just, stay out of Ontario, which would be infested with zombies in Ottawa and Toronto. - ethanmeinster

If we go to colder parts of Canada then we should be safe - Picklesthekitten45

Or you could freeze to death, unless you knew what you were doing, of course - GamingGodPrime

This would be pretty safe because low population density,and cold temperatures that could freeze up the zombies. Only southern Canada would be unsafe and swarmed by zombies - Bearskater13

Not in because, it will not! - PizzaGuy

27 Mali Mali
28 Chad Chad

It's A Hot Desert And Has Little Resources And Scorching Heat. To Get Water And Food You'd Need To Travel Far. To Travel Far You'd Need A Camel. If Your Camel Got Bit, There's No Going Anywhere. - Jerry_Bob

and has a lot of Radioactive Cities

38 Germany Germany Germany was formally united in 1871 under the initiative of Bismarck with King Wilhelm of Prussia as emperor. The previous 'Holy Roman Empire', basically a continuation of the empire of Charlemagne/Karl der Grosse was dissolved in 1806. more.

40 Ecuador Ecuador Ecuador, officially the Republic of Ecuador, is a representative democratic republic in northwestern South America, bordered by Colombia on the north, Peru on the east and south, and the Pacific Ocean to the west.

The andean mountain range would be our shelter as it is very high up and zombies are bad climbers. Also there are no hurricanes or tornadoes, and you'd be pretty safe from a tsunami.

41 France France France, officially the French Republic, is a sovereign state comprising territory in western Europe and several overseas regions and territories.
