Liberia was colonized by private companies in the USA who wanted to return former slaves to Africa, so you can't say "none" just because no European country ever set foot in it. Ethiopia, however, was never colonized, just occupied.

Liberia was colonized by African American men and women who decided to go back to Africa because of the dangers that were in America. I am giving "none" as an answer because they weren't a country but a group of emigrants who wanted to go back to Liberia. Ultimately the nation Liberia was formerly recognized by the US several years later, therefore making it -the first African country not colonized-. You can argue that it was colonized by those people, but that would be the same as saying that ISIS is and official country in the Middle East. Those people weren't like ISIS, of course, but the sought to make a country, yet they weren't one.
