In the Islamic Republic of Iran, alcohol is seized and destroyed

Can you guess the country being discussed from these quotes?

“There are three countries in the world which ban the discussion of alcohol: Iran, Afghanistan and ________.”

“Today in ________, the sight of a bottle of wine has become as offensive as a picture of war or pornography.”

“_________ may be home to some of the world’s finest wines but it could be about to join the tiny club of Muslim states that forbid their promotion on the internet.”

1. United Arab Emirates
2. Saudi Arabia
3. France
4. Pakistan

The correct answer is #3, France.
