* I pity the UK, then. With the sheer amount of economic cross-dependence necessary to keep the modern first world working, the complete collapse of every other nation would hit the place pretty hard. Expect third world country conditions, at best.

[[WMG: [[Series/{{Spaced}} Tyres]] wasn't a zombie.]]
[[AttentionDeficitOohShiny We all know that he tends to regard]] [[MundaneMadeAwesome random noises as music]]. [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} He just thought he was at a rave outside the Winchester]]. The zombies ignore the heroes as they imitate the zombies, so why not Tyres as well? Additionally, Tyres is the only one who notices Shaun and co. as we see him glance over at them, whereas the zombies just stare around blankly.

* That's actually perfectly reasonable. It's warm weather in the northern hemisphere when ''Shaun of the Dead'' takes place, and as far as I can recall, nobody else immediately iced their wounds. It's certainly reasonable that whatever causes zombification (a protozoan? A slime mold that breeds primarily in liquids that contain similar enzymes to those in saliva? A curse designed by the original inhabitants of Britain to combat the Romans, who would be [[WorldWarII too weak to survive the winter if they attempted to follow the northerly rearward advancement of their target populace]] but needed to be weakened and confused?) dies when it reaches temperatures of less than, say, sixty-eight degrees. Phillip running near-freezing water over the bite before the cause got too far from the surface killed some and weakened any possible survivors enough that his immune system could destroy them.

England survived the zombie apocalypse but America and the other countries fell. At the end, England is the last country standing.
* I pity England, then. With the sheer amount of economic cross-dependence necessary to keep the modern first world working, the complete collapse of every other nation would hit the place pretty hard. Expect third world country conditions, at best.
* In addition, ''ComicBook/VForVendetta'' takes place in the same universe. All of the world but England has collapsed, and England has become a dystopian place ruled by a dictator.

* Jossed, because at the end there are scenes from a japanese Zombie-Tv-GameShow. England is not the last country standing, the USA is the only country which falled. Everywhere else the people stayed at home and led the goverment successfull handle the crisis, but in the USA every idiot grabed his gun and went out looting, which was the real reason for the collapse of society.

** Green Flu in America was a mutated version of the plague in England. While the England plague focused on killing the person's cognitive functions while boosting resistance with a little to no incubation time, Green Flu focused on incubation and swapping out some of the energy dealt by the brain and using it for stamina and further mutation. Thus, England has a disease that kills lots in it's first incarnation but is easily dealt with otherwise, and America has an insidious disease that can take weeks to make you into an undead if you are unlucky and has mutated infected that can think. ''Shaun of the Dead'' would be very different if both diseases were the exact same.

[[WMG: SOTD takes place in the Walking Dead universe, and shows how a government and population would actually cope.]]
They manage to save the day and restore everything, using the zombies as manual labor. 'Keep Calm and Carry On' indeed.

[[WMG: Shaun of the dead takes place in the same universe as zombie land]]
Going by an above WMG that explains America was the only place that collapsed, let's look at zombie land it's basically become survival of the fittest.

*** Amplification works that way in the ''Literature/{{Newsflesh}}'' universe, with the patient's body size, general health, age, and activity level all influencing how fast the process goes.

[[WMG: No matter how many zombies there are, they can't kill something that moves faster than a jog.]]
* Shaun rushes, or more of jogs, through a crowd of zombies outside the Winchester, comes back without even a bite. [[spoiler: David? Simply flails and gets torn to bloody shreds. Literally.]] Dianne? Does pretty much the same as Shaun, and she comes out okay. Somehow.

We take Pete's car, we drive over to Mum's, we go in, take care of Philip, then we grab Mum, we go over to Liz's place, hole up, have a cup of tea and wait for this whole thing to blow over.

* This also can help to explain why the Zed infection did not spread as quickly as it did. More than a few people probably followed "motherly advice" and ran cold water over the wounds of zed infected bites or scratches to cleanse the area. So those that did so, found if not a cure, at least a way to stop and[=/=]or slow the infection and allowed scientists to come up with something more permanent. At least if they did... seems the zed are still around in the world after the apocalypse occurred.
