Firstly, due to a lack of data, smaller tribal kingdoms in Africa or Asia may not be found in this quiz. There is no possibility to make such a quiz 100% accurate.
Secondly, there were multiple forms of government and sovereignty back then. In addition to the aforementioned colonies, protected states, protectorates and dominions, there were many more forms. The New Hebrides were a neutral territory, Bulgaria a de-facto independent vassal, Crete an autonomous state and the Philippines an unrecognized state to name a few. It's up to definition whether these countries can be considered sovereign or not.
Wikipedia has been used to determine answers. Both modern-day sovereign nations and formerly sovereign countries have been considered.
YouTube has mainly been used to determine shapes and borders. Especially EmperorTigerstar and OllieBye have been used as an inspiration.

History of China Every Year by Khey Pard
Canada *never* declared war on any of the Central Powers during World War I, yet hundreds of thousands of Canadians took part in the conflict. Canada didn't declare war because it couldn't—its parliament had not the power to do so. However, by the time World War II started in 1939, Canada did declare war on Germany because, by then, it was an independent country.
TL;DR — Canadian independence day = 1931 December 11
Please reply with the link if you can.
New Zealand became independent on 1947 November 25.
Australia… well… they enacted the act that made them independent on 1942 October 9 but they made their independence retroactive (whatever that even means) to 1939 October 3.
Also, as a few others have said a few of the smaller countries can be quite hard to spot, even with the colour change. But, I guess if you circle them it may be a complete give away.
