Given the growing frequency with which zombies appear in movies, TV shows, and your worst nightmares, it’s inevitable the zombie apocalypse will soon be upon us. When it comes to surviving this inevitable showdown with the undead, location is everything. Do you live in a state populated with zealous zombie fighters capable of beating back hordes of brain-hungry walking dead? Estately answered this question with its Zombie Apocalypse Preparedness Rankings, which were determined using the 11 metrics below that measure fighting ability, knowledge of zombies, physical fitness, and access to weapons…
- Active Military Personnel: States with more soldiers per capita means states with more people who are physically fit, trained to fight, and have access to weapons.
- Military Veterans: Percentage of veterans per capita is a solid way of measuring fighting experience.
- Physically Active: States with residents who rarely get out of their Laz-E-Boy will not escape the zombie menace=.
- Martial Arts Enthusiasts: Hand-to-hand combat is an important skill when the ammo runs out (source—percentage of Facebook users who listed “martial arts” as an interest).
- People with Survival Skills: In the long run, knowing how to survive without modern conveniences in a collapsed society will be critical (source—percentage of Facebook users who listed “survival skills” as an interest).
- People with Knowledge of Zombies: To know your enemy you must know their ways (source—percentage of Facebook users who listed “zombies, Resident Evil, Zombieland, and The Walking Dead” as interests).
- Laser Tag Enthusiasts: Yes, laser tag. Few things prepare you for a zombie attack in enclosed space (source—percentage of Facebook users who listed “laser tag” as an interest).
- People with Guns: Shooting a zombie in the head is really the best way to defeat a zombie, and to do that you need a gun.
- Obesity: The obesity epidemic will yield to the zombie epidemic because the obese will struggle with running away from zombies. It’s really very simple.
- Paintball Enthusiasts: Those who can slink around the woods unnoticed while splattering their enemies with paint will find success shooting zombies in nature (source—percentage of Facebook users who listed “paintball” as an interest).
- Triathletes: When everything breaks down, running, swimming, and bicycling will be ideal ways to escape zombies (source—percentage of Facebook users who listed “Ironman triathlon” as an interest).
Below is a complete ranking of the 50 states based on zombie apocalypse preparedness. Those at the top are the most likely to survive and those at the bottom are the least likely to. Scores are per capital rankings for each category.
Word of the day: Prepare! And do it the old fashion way, like our fore-fathers did it and succeed long before us, because what lies ahead of us will require all the help we can get. Watch this video and learn the 3 skills that ensured our ancestors survival in hard times of famine and war.
From the rankings, we discovered these surprising truths…
- Delaware is an island of survivors in the zombie-strewn hellscape that will be the Mid-Atlantic.
- Florida, where the zombie apocalypse (like all serious problems) will no doubt begin, is oddly not in 51st place.
- Wisconsin can now make fun of Minnesota and Michigan about something other than the Green Bay Packers standing in the NFC North.
- New Jersey and Mississippi routinely end up on the bottom of lists. All lists.
- Rural states offer favorable survivability.
- Something’s wrong with Nebraska.
- Utah loves laser tag.
- The West Coast and the South will eventually agree on something—the delicious appeal of brains.
PROFILE OF THE 10 STATES MOST PREPARED TO SURVIVE ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE
In a state where residents run from bears and moose, they will not be scared of slow-moving corpses. Alaska is packed with military personnel and veterans, and they’re only a fraction of the well-armed Alaskans prepared to shoot zombies from a moving snowmobile.
No other state has a shared love of zombie movies and guns like Wyoming. While New Yorkers are having their brains eaten in cafes and elevators, the fine people of Wyoming will be sitting on the front porch with a shotgun enjoying a prolonged zombie hunting season.
Coloradans are well known to be among the most physically fit in the country so when zombies start crawling out of their graves, most of the state’s residents will be miles away, easily jogging up a 10,000-foot mountain.
If a horde of zombies stumbles into Lewiston, Idaho they’re going to have their hands full. Idahoans are physically active, heavily armed, and are hard to catch because they’re oddly really into parkour.
This state knows its zombie facts (from movies and TV shows), but it’s also full of triathletes and martial enthusiasts. Not only can residents escape from zombies by running, swimming, or biking, but they can also turn around and dole out some beat downs like the ninja assassins they are.
The state’s residents previously prepared to face the zombie apocalypse, but that was because pranksters hacked into a TV station’s EAS and broadcasted a message that the zombie apocalypse had begun. Had that not been a test, those zombies would have experienced the full wrath of Montana’s arsenal because that state is heavily armed.
Home to both the Department of Zombie Defense and the Arizona Zombie Defense Force. The state of Arizona trains for the zombie apocalypse with zombie walks, a Zombie Night at an Arizona Diamondbacks game, and much more.
Las Vegas is home to the Zombie Apocalypse Store, so it’ll be easy to buy supplies to fend off the walking dead. Cities around the state are already prepping with zombie pub crawls, a state run zombie prevention site, and more.
New Yorkers fleeing a zombie apocalypse will drive up real estate prices when the move to the Granite State, the most prepared in the Northeast.
Should the zombies enter an office building in Wisconsin, they’ll face a large number of people prepared to shoot zombies in confined areas because Wisconsin is home to the most laser tag enthusiasts per capita in America. Wisconsin is awesome.
PROFILE OF 10 STATES THAT WILL DEFINITELY NOT SURVIVE A ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE
Despite being physically fit, residents of Massachusetts are almost completely lacking in knowledge of zombies. Ignorance is not bliss, it’s very costly in a zombie apocalypse.
The Tennessee Zombie Response Unit has its work cut out for it because the rest of state is ill prepared to battle the undead. Tennesseans should abandon their company softball teams and form paintball teams instead.
For Louisiana, the downside of letting the good times roll is it makes it very difficult outrun the living dead. Lack of physical fitness and limited knowledge of zombies dooms the great state of Louisiana… once it runs out of ammunition.
Here’s a plan—Alabama confronts its obesity by training for the Alabama Biathalon. It’s a variation of the winter sport, but instead of cross-country skiing you just run around the woods with a gun shooting at everything. It’s like hunting season, but you can’t bring a 24-pack of beer.
Residents of Connecticut should either begin playing laser tag or start seasoning themselves because if the zombie apocalypse started today they’d get eaten up as appetizers.
Even though The Walking Dead is set in Georgia, residents there have little interest in zombies. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, the undead will discover Georgia brains are as sweet as Georgia peaches.
If there were New York travel brochure for zombies it would tout the state’s lack of veterans, limited enthusiasm for survival skills, and scarcity of firearms.
49th—DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA
Our nation’s capital has almost no knowledge of zombies, martial arts, or firearm ownership. It’s going to be an all-you-can-eat brain buffet for the zombies.
M-I-S-S-I-S-S-I-P-P-Die. Everybody is going to die. From zombies.
51st—NEW JERSEY If the zombie apocalypse began today, and you live in New Jersey, the odds are 100% that you’ve already been bitten and have become a zombie, unless you took a course from New Jersey’s own Zombie Survival Course. It’s real, and it could definitely save your life… even though they criticized our article. Watch this video.

Interesting article. Great post.
Funny how the entire Southeast is labeled zombie land, yet Illinois will defeat the zombies. Total opposite regions when it comes to gun control. Not only that, the entire southeast quadrant of North Carolina is comprised of military and military families. North Carolina is full of ex-New Yorkers and is a melting pot of educated people from around the globe. I’d also say North Carolina is one of the most internet savvy bunch out of the South, it’s not a bunch of rednecks and you realize that once you live there for more than a year.
I can only imagine people from other states are looking at their own on this map and wondering how and what idiot came up with this formula
This guy has obviously never been to Nebraska.
BULL CRAP ! There are NO zombies !
Not yet… https://www.allselfsustained.com/are-we-mad-to-have-let-a-maverick-scientist-create-a-virus-that-could-wipe-out-400-million-people/
In 1968 was captured a list of states that would be the hardest to overcome or defeat, a list found on a KGB agent in Germany. The top three states, that would be the hardest to conquer because of military veterans, people with knowledge of weapons, number of hunters familiar with weapons, terrain, camoflage, etc, were; 1: Texas 2. Pennsylvania 3. Michigan – shows how much this “useful idiot” knows.
Sorry, I gotta argue with you on DC. The zombies will starve there, as there are no brains in DC.
This article is the classic case of a colossal waste of time and energy.
Hell, Idaho is still using their search engines to find wtf “parkour” means!
Developed in France, ”Parkour” is a training discipline using movement that developed from military obstacle course training.
Thank You. I knew, but had to have a jab at my State. Sorry for the double post. In the real world, most citizens of the U.S. are classified as “Zombies” by DHS & U.S. Military planners. Get down around Boise & with most of the people I’ve seen with cell phones glued to their heads or never looking up while texting & driving a vehicle, I can see why thaty classification has merit.

I’m calling BS! Most, if not all of your facts are based on Facebook… really, Facebook? Go back to the drawing board, and recheck your facts, minus the Facebook crap. It was pretty good for $hits and giggles though. I think if the zombies do really come, we’re all in a world of hurt.
It’s unfortunate that stats were compiled using FB as source. It’s my experience that the peeps most in tune with current events – including zombies – are smart enough to stay off of flippin’ FB. So, this data is woefully incomplete.
No such thing as zombies and there never will be…its all made up fiction. Same as godzilla is made up fiction. Taking time to list states on this garbage shows the author and the owner of this site are stupid. Post real news not fake crap
Colo? any state that legalizes drugs is already a zombie constituency. Family in Colo speak of a lot of folks stoned and dazed and very debilitated since its legalization of pot. Their days are limited. Plus it is the site of Denver Intl Airport and the HQ of the NWO in USA.
Colo is among the WORST places, and it has gotten the highest consistent rads from Fukushima outside of the west coast
