In plague, you must play to win. That means killing EVERYONE - not six and a half billion people, everyone. But where is the best place to start?
There are two schools of thought on this, I’ll provide you both.
1. An island nation
Usually this means, Greenland, Iceland or Madagascar because they can be notoriously difficult to infect. I’ll throw in New Zealand and the Caribbean as others that can seem immune from an inbound plague. Because these regions can be so difficult to infect one strategy is to start your plague in one of the regions. Personally, I have had the most success with Greenland and Madagascar.
2. A poor country with a seaport and airport.
For me this usually means India. Despite being described as a rural country, there are over a billion people to infect in India. They have a relatively modest medical research budget, which is nice to take out when you turn the heat up to kill everyone. With India you have the potential to spread your pathogen by air, land or sea. This will maximize your ability to infect as many countries as possible, as fast as possible.
So which is the best country to start your plague? INDIA
