Outlandish stereotypes are things that all foreigners have to deal with, and as a group, expats aren’t immune. We certainly don’t want to fuel any wild prejudices here. But in the event that you’re an expat interested in the best places in the world to occasionally indulge in beverages of the alcoholic variety, the World Health Organization has conveniently published a list of the drunkest nations in the world per capita.
And in a surprising twist, everyone’s favorite contender– Ireland– didn’t top the list. Though undoubtedly, they certainly came close.
Ireland only managed #4 in the world in alcoholic consumption, as an unexpected Uganda topped the world with a startling 19.47 litres consumed per capita. Luxembourg and the Czech Republic rounded out the top three. Germany, another odds on favorite, ranked #10.
Not surprisingly, Europe is easily the drunkest continent. It’s also the origin of most of the world’s expats. Hmm.
