Scenario financial meltdown

Sovereign Default is a scenario in which a failure to extend the debt ceiling in the USA triggers a major financial re-balancing. A few countries benefit, but most suffer catastrophic damage to their economics with impacts on healthcare and research capability. The Complete Sovereign Default achievement can be earned for winning this scenario with three biohazards.

What happens in this scenario?Edit

Most countries have a significantly reduced cure capability. For example, France, the UK and the USA  have 10 flasks on a normal game. However, with Sovereign Default, they have 5-6, making cure research funding lower than normal. In a normal game, there are 340 cure bottles, but in this scenario, there are only 282. Some countries do benefit, however, such as Saudi Arabia and China. They have increased research capability, and so, are considered Rich. This makes it highly imperative that Drug Resistance be bought soon after the start of the game to counter this effect, especially when starting in said country.

  • The countries that have average economies in the normal game of Plague Inc.: Russia, India, Brazil, South Africa, Argentina, Mexico, Corea and Indonesia,are poor countries in this scenario, and their research centers are reduced.
  • The countries of the European Union are no longer rich countries. Countries like the United Kingdom, France, Sweden, Finland and Italy, lose the characteristic of being rich countries in this scenario. The same thing also happens with Japan.
  • The only countries in Europe that are rich are Norway; because Norway is not part of the European Union; and Germany, because it is the European country with the most riches and great economic stability.
  • Saudi Arabia and China in this scenario become rich countries.
