    • Thanks for playing, Intro. Answers to your question vary depending on how you define “existence as a nation” but I would answer, England, Thailand, Mongolia, and indeed several European countries such as Germany and France,. The last two were invaded and occupied during World War 2, but I think that is different from colonised. Any African countries?
