There are only 22 countries in the world today that have never been “invaded” by troops of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.
The count includes tiny city states such as the Vatican City, the Monaco Principality, Lichtenstein and Andorra that, for a variety of reasons, managed to preserve their territorial independence for centuries. One of the key factors is that their importance in the global geopolitical stage did not depend on their geographic location or natural resources and that they have remained friendly to the Government of Great Britain.
The count also includes remote, land-locked regions (often at a high altitude above sea level) like Mongolia, the Central African Republic, Belarus or Bolivia, whose geopolitical importance is key to bilateral relations of neighbouring countries but limited on the global scale.
The new cop in town
On the other hand, according to the official statistics of the US Department of Defense, the United States of America have currently troops in 150 countries around the world.
The USA still has not officially “invaded” as many as Britain managed throughout its history… but there’s still time.
Al Murrey proves it
And… to finish on a happy note, in the following video British comedian Al Murray proves that Britain has defeated every country in the world.
