All Modern-Day Countries Ever Controlled by Chinese People

Chinese civilization is no doubt one of the oldest and most influential in the history of mankind. But how far have Chinese powers really stretched? Below is a map of modern-day countries that were fully or partially under their rule, can you name them all?

For this quiz, the definition of Chinese people will be Han Chinese and other minorities heavily under its influence. Nomadic empires that became sinicized (e.g. Jin) will be considered whereas those that didn't (e.g. Yuan) are excluded. Places with Chinese influence but were never controlled by Chinese people such as Malaysia and Singapore are also discarded
Tributaries are included
While this probably is not perfect, this map should be a rough representation of how far Chinese powers have reached

What about Malaysia, Brunei, Indonesia and Singapore? According to history, in the late 1770s some Cantonese expats sailed to Borneo and founded a "Lan Fang Republic” which was more like the British East India Company. The "Republic" was later seized by the Dutch when they gained full control of today's Indonesia. As for Singapore and Western Malaysia, the Chinese immigrants posed a profound influence on the local culture--they now use simplified Chinese characters.

Didn't know that was a thing. Thanks! Will be adding Lan Fang Republic to this in a future update. I have stated about Singapore and Malaysia in the second caveat.
