These regions are generally congregated in the Bible Belt, where the thought of temperance still has a hold.

Afghanistan

There are a lot of spots authorized to offer beverages to foreigners while it's unlawful for local people to buy spirits in Afghanistan.

Bahrain

Liquor is just available in hotels and through private licenses to be purchased to non-Muslims just in Bahrain. Savoring liquor in public is still unlawful and being drunk can really get you tossed in a correctional facility.

Brunei

This oil-rich nation has some amazingly strict laws and really serious punishments like flogging in regards to liquor use. While it's unlawful for the ordinary individuals, the sultan of Brunei's family is known for facilitating extravagant gatherings that don't appear to be dry in the slightest.

Iran

While unlawful for Muslims and cruelly punished, the nation's Christian minorities are permitted to drink and regularly distil arak, moonshine produced using raisins.

Iraq
