Invasion, five (5) hours of fighting, ceasefire, a few days that could be called occupation I guess, after that alliance that allowed Japan to operate in Thailand and build railways among other things, but wasn't formally an occupation. Dunno, I'd still put it on the not-occupied list.

I would have thrown India in as a possible answer for the Buddha birth question (instead of, say Vietnam). It might have gotten a lot of votes.

It also would have been terribly confusing, because the area was in India then, but is in Nepal now.
