A non-religious country, where you don't drink?

As the the headline tell I am looking for a combination of these no religion and no Alcohol.

My thesis is that almost all countries have some kind of religion, more or less, and in almost all countries people drink alcohol in some kind, more or less official.

So does this combination exist?

If it does I would like to visit that world.

Re: A non-religious country, where you dont drink?

There isn't any established "country" that has no "religion" (of some sort) and no alcohol or some type of intoxicant/mind altering substance. And I think pretty much all of the remote "tribes" (e.g.: the Yanomami which I studied when I was in college years ago) have become known although I wouldn't bet on it.

Wikipedia reference-linkYanomami

I think the best one could hope for is a secular country where each person respects every other person's religious beliefs (or one's lack of any religious belief). As to alcohol, I have never heard of any country or tribe which has no "drugs" of any kind.

Religion(s) of some type, drugs (be it alcohol and/or other substance(s)), and war are the three things humans have always had (at least going back 10,000+ years).

Maybe you're looking for a "Utopia" such as was portrayed in Wikipedia reference-linkLost_Horizon_(1937_film) - Tracey and I watched the restored version in the last 6 months or so. I remember watching it when I was young. Alas, no such place exists and I seriously doubt anything close has ever existed other than in some people's minds.

Re: A non-religious country, where you dont drink?

A similar provision exists in Western Australia:

Drinking in a public place
It is an offence in Western Australia for persons of any age to drink in public, such as on the street, park or beach.
PENALTY:
$200 infringement or maximum $2000 fine.

However, saying that Western Australia is devoid of alcohol, or that alcohol is unpopular / uncommon here would be quite far from the truth.

I agree with Marc that there's probably no country in the world where alcohol is absent, or even uncommon. I believe that if there's an exception it's only in countries where extreme religious law is applied brutally.
