Welcome to the Zombie Research Institute!
☣ Based in Svalbard for Quarantine purposes. ☣

Whilst the World continually suffers through Zombie Apocalypses; strangely always coinciding with the Holy Day of All Hallows Eve, this region exists as an island of tranquility - A barricaded fortress of research into the dark and eldritch Sciences in those "grey areas" beyond the limits of reason, logic, and ethics - Pushing the boundaries of knowledge and wisdom to breaking point, into the unknown, and íղSaNe...

Eh? Err, sorry no thanks.
- Another time perhaps!

Throws crumbs, and a few bits of crust to the floor, and pulls out his tablet to peruse the news, his emails, and check on social media.

Catches this on CCTV, and barks over the public address system:

Do you guys usually drink during work hours?
I mean, you may be on a break, but we expect certain standards around here! This is a shared intergovernmental research facility! - We're not hosting some kind of international kegger here!

Besides, during your 'down time' I'd expect you to get some R&R at the Bar on the Corner of Every Region - Not here!

Heads back indoors.

Walks up and delivers some 'legal paperwork' to the diplomat, in a large, heavily padded, brown envelope.

You can't keep us cats indoors!

Protest marches against the lockdown - Using arguments for bodily liberty we'd normally be against.

Hi, with over 250 embassies, the process I have for delivering news has become too inefficient. I feel bad for doing this, but I'm going to streamline by closing our embassies. If you'd rather keep the embassy open, please let me know on The NewsStand RMB.

If you want to keep up with the news, you can always add The NewsStand to your dossier, and catch up whenever suits.

Thanks for having had the embassy with us. It has genuinely meant a lot to have had your support for so long.
