If you can say one thing about humankind it's this: we like a drink.
1. In terms of alcohol consumed per person, Andorra, Hungary and Russia are leading the pack – while the UK is way down the list.
2. In terms of total booze consumption, we miss out on the top 10 but the UK is top of the binge drinking league.
3. Russia and Eastern Europe take the prize for the global regions with the biggest booze habit, with more than 12.5 litres of pure alcohol consumed per person.
4. The world's favourite tipple is sprits, followed by beer and then wine.
5. Almost half the entire world's adult population has never drunk alcohol.
6. British drinkers love beer – but wine has gone from being consumed by hardly anyone in the 1960s to 34% of the country's annual booze intake.
7. Meanwhile, the USA loves beer.
8. Whereas in places such as North Korea – where people drink 3.7 litres of alcohol a year – it's all about spirits.
9. There is a serious message in the report, however: booze is a huge problem for the developing world.
It says that booze accounts for 3.3 million deaths a year across the world – that's 5.9% of all deaths. More than 200 health conditions are linked to drinking.
And despite consumption being higher among rich countries, the WHO says this is a problem that "continues to be a factor that has to be addressed to ensure sustained social and economic development throughout the world".
The WHO is calling for a 10% reduction in harmful alcohol abuse by 2025 and calls for alcohol intervention to be a higher priority for governments.
