World Health Organisation report: the heaviest drinkers are all in Europe.

United Kingdom and Ireland do not make the top ten. The report revealed that Britons over 15 years old drink 11.6 litres on average every year, making it joint 17th with Slovenia. Australia and Canada also failed to meet the top 10 but maintain high levels of drinking at 12.2 and 10.2 litres a year respectively. On average, the USA drinks 9.2 litres each year, Switzerland averages 10.7 liters alcohol per head per year.

The top ten countries, average consumed per adult head, in pure alcohol,

1st: Belarus - 17.5 litres
2nd: Moldova - 16.8 litres
3rd: Lithuania - 15.4 litres
4th: Russia - 15.1 litres
5th: Romania - 14.4 litres
6th: Ukraine - 13.9 litres
7th: Andorra - 13.8 litres
8th: Hungary - 13.3 litres
9th: Czech Republic - 13 litres
9th: Slovakia - 13 litres
10th: Portugal - 12.9 litres

More or less confirms the old TRANSLATION of the USSR, as being the Union of Serious Stuff-drinking Republics
