How Well Would Your Country/Area Fair In A Zombie Outbreak?

Sup Halo fans (and COD fans), 
 
As some of you might or might not know, a huge protest is going on in Egypt about revolutions and whatnot.  So it got me thinking with logic, what if those weren't protesters but rather undead?  Two million undead marching in the streets, we have now seen what that looks like.  It looks like some countries might not fair as well as others. 
 
So, I want to know, how well would your country or local area fair with the outbreak?  In this situation, the majority is overtaken by the virus.   
 
If you live in a large country, stick with area I guess.  For me it'd go like this: 
 
Tri-State-Area 

  • Times Square, Gone
  • Most of NYC, Gone
  • Jersey, Doomed
  • Jersey Shores, would be survivable depending on location.
  • Connecticut, depending on area it could be good or bad.
  • Philadelphia Region, fucked.  :|
 
At least up here in the East Coast we have a good percentage of people with guns, be it legal or illegal, and the foundations of American values would be tested to their limits as this area is the most diverse out of the entire world.  Would we stand together, or just say fuck it and everyman it.   Honestly, I think most people here would be fucked.   
 
What about where you live?

My area would be fucked. No one around here is smart enough to know what to do in that kind of situation. 
 
Also I don't even think there is a gun store around here anywhere.

I live up a side street that goes up into the woods.

Well, there aren't a lot of guns in Canada, but there is a lot of wilderness. Assuming you can get out of the city, I'd think it would be OK.

I can speed walk so I'm good.

In the Midwest everyone has a gun, so I don't expect the zombies to last more than a few hours.

28 Days Later, that's how my country would fair.

Canada? Pretty well. The southern areas might get fucked, but further up north it's so sparsely populated that a zombie outbreak would hardly have any effect.

@Hourai: ...you still have winters and chances are the power would go out.

Raleigh is pretty doomed because there are some idiots who live in this area. But, in general, I think us Americans have a bit larger chance of surviving because guns are pretty readily available.

I'm down the street from a major city, and most National Guard bases are up North. My state (Ohio) has tons of huge populated areas literally surrounding my town. Cincinnati is just south of me, North of me is Dayton, Columbus, and Cleveland. To the West is Chicago and Indianapolis. Most of my area's travel revolves around two major highways. Yeah, we would go down pretty quickly.
