The Zombie Defense and Control (ZDC) is a government agency in Dead Rising 3.[1] The agency is described as a "Zombie FBI".[2]

Producer Josh Bridges explains: "At face value, all the government influence is actually built to help. It's not a dystopian world with obvious surveillance and people running underground. It's just a result of the zombie threat."[3]
