Belarus, a small landlocked country in Europe, consumed the greatest average number of liters of pure alcohol per capita. On average, its citizens consumed 14.4 liters each year, over 1.5 times more than Americans. While the Belarusian government was quick to deny the statistics published by WHO, national anti-alcohol programs were implemented in order to decrease the level of consumption.

Russia, known for its heavy consumption of vodka, drank an average of 11.5 liters of pure alcohol each year, less than the average of five other countries. While it still makes the top 10, the stereotype of Russians and vodka may be dwindling as Putin has been cracking down on illegal alcohol consumption in light of numerous deaths.

Ireland, Luxembourg, and Slovakia consumed slightly less, all drinking an average of 11.4 liters per capita. The U.S. claimed the 25th spot, drinking an average of 8.7 liters of pure alcohol per capita annually.
