Research Facilities are a feature in the coding of Plague Inc. and Plague Inc: Evolved which mediate how much cure research money a certain country has.

They provide a major challenge for the player in the form of cure development. Each country has its own research facilities, and each facility invests $1,146.56 daily for the cure. There are a total of a total of 340 facilities in the normal Plague Inc. world, with each country (or group of countries) having 2-10 of its own. Listed below are countries by how many facilities they have each in Plague Inc. The amount of money can be increased by government actions such as a martial law declaration.

Countries by number of research facilities (total: 340)Edit

Note: During Sovereign default they have less total research facilities (282) and more in Golden age (375). And in Mirror Earth the numbers are inverted(Rich becomes poor, poor becomes rich, etc).
