Countries of the World in 1900 (with Map!)

Name the countries that were independent on December 31, 1900
Not including the territory occupied by the Boxers
The source lists some Nigerian and Yemeni states as "independent". I didn't include it because they were also under British protectorate
Protectorates aren't included, but personal unions are

Great, let‘s start the discussion! I had absolutely no idea about Canada, Australia and New Zealand, but I forgot to ask the community. So what do you think, dear Canadians, Australians and Kiwis?

OK, I‘ve read up a few things. In 1867, Canada simply became a dominion within the British Empire. From now on, they were semi-independent. According to what I‘ve read, Canada‘s independence resulted in Statute of Westminster in 1931. My fellow Canadians, feel free to argue with me.

Australia, if you really got your independence on January 1, 1901, it‘s sadly too late to be part of the quiz because it demands independence on December 31, 1900

which leads me to the question, What's the difference between dominion and the relationship they have now as an 'independent nation'. Because they still share a monarch....

Dominion is simply a term adapted from the Bible by Canadian politicians. Canada became an independent self governing nation in 1867. The Statue of Westminster formalized this independence into a Commonwealth of Nations under one monarch.

Canada became independent in 1867, though it shared the head of the state with the UK, it should be considered a country, since the same happens today with Canada, Australia, New Zealand.....

I agree, it was only after 1900 this happened, in turn starting WWI over the Archduke's assassination.
