Alcohol and cigarettes account for 0.9% of money spent on international trade. Western European territories alone profit from two thirds of the worldwide net exports. Regional exports from Western Europe are 72% of all regional exports. France and the Netherlands have the highest value of exports, and both these territories are in the top ten list of net exporters by population.

Although South American territories together are the second biggest net exporters of cigarettes and alcohol, only one South American territory, Chile, features in the top ten net exporters when earnings are divided by population.

"A custom loathsome to the eye, hateful to the nose, harmful to the brain, dangerous to the lungs, and the black stinking fume thereof ..." James Charles Stuart, 1604

Territory size shows the proportion of worldwide net exports of alcohol and cigarettes (in US$) that come from there. Net exports are exports minus imports. When imports are larger than exports the territory is not shown.
