"A global growth surge brings huge economic gains that primarily benefit the people at the bottom of the pyramid, improving the quality of life for billions. Healthcare and research is significantly improved worldwide.
Can humanity be stopped?"

— Plague Inc., Golden Age introduction paragraph.

Golden Age is a scenario.

What happens?

Many countries have a greater research and healthcare capability, and so it would be advisable to evolve Drug Resistance abilities. This new research capability comes in the form of there being an increased number of cure bottles. In a normal game, there are 340 bottles, but in this scenario, their numbers are increased to 446.
