Isn't that just the old name for Somalia?

 

Tibet.

 

No - the land distribution is different between the two territories, and Italian Somaliland was a part of the Italian Empire

 

Here's another: Alsace-Lorraine

hawaii

Very good guess, but the annexation of Hawaii was in 1898, more than 100 years ago.

 

Also, I didn't know that about Italian Somaliland, thanks for the info.

 

Western Sahara (before Morocco's annexing)

Well, the title Czar or Tsar was an unofficial name of the head of state of Russia until 1917. Nicholas II wasn't really a Czar - in 1721 they changed the official ruler's title to be the Imperator - so technically, in the 20th century there were no Czars. But I don't really care, you can have a point.

 

Here's another: Alawite

Sean hasn't been on for more than a day, so here's my count. Companion Cube lost a few on mandates that wern't independent states, but I don't think that would change the results. If you dispute my count, let me know.

So that makes me the winner.
