The United States and Japan have the highest value of net alcohol and cigarette imports in the world. The lowest (positive) values of net imports are for the Cook Islands, Comoros and Tuvalu.

Trade is the basis of our subsistence, underpinning the economic system with which most of the world population now engages. Trade maps demonstrate the contours of movement of goods and money around the globe. Trade links territories into relationships of supply and demand, of dependence and sometimes interdependence. The nature of these relationships affects the wealth and poverty of all involved.

“Myth: Alcohol is a good way to cope with cold weather. Fact: Alcohol makes blood vessels of the skin dilate and the skin feels warm.” Hans Olav Fekjaer, 1993

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