Spy balloons... unidentified aircraft being shot down... the world is as crazy as ever and if you didn't know better, you would think that world is on its way to hell in a handbasket.

Is it really out of the question to think that a zombie apocalypse isn't out of the question?

Idaho is among the best for zombie survivors

So, it only seems fitting that someone would take the time in 2023 to determine which states in the US are the safest from zombies in the event of an outbreak.

In addition to around a thousand Google searches, the website insuranks.com reports that they surveyed "more than 1,000 Americans on zombies and what they might do in case of a zombie apocalypse."

It turns out that Idaho is among the best states for surviving a zombie apocalypse. The report says that Idaho is in the top 15, ranking 12th overall. What factors go into these rankings? Insuranks.com based the rankings on things like population, mountains in the state, and even if you could live off of the land.

Which state is the worst to try and survive a zombie apocalypse in?

Whether or not this is a surprise is up for debate but if you just have to know which state is the worst... that title belongs to none other than California.

However, California coming in at 50 for "best states to survive a zombie apocalypse" shouldn't surprise anyone. It's one of the most populated states in the country and I don't care what anyone says - I wouldn't want to be on Hollywood Blvd. during a zombie apocalypse.

But what if the zombie apocalypse took place in Boise? Where are the best and worst places to go? Let's take a look...
