First, please accept "USSR"; second, what are you defining as "countries"? Nauru wasn't independent until 1968. Portuguese Timor (or, now, East Timor) wasn't independent until 2002. If you're going to list those, then why not, say, Austria or Ukraine?

A surprise that Japan had an entire military in action (with some kamikaze pilots) and had two a-bombs dropped on them and still didnt make this list.

Why should Ukraine or Austria make this list? The link says Austria only had 5.8% of its population killed...

Yugoslavia should be on here. Per your source, it lost 6.67% of its population, while the Philippines lost 3.48-6.6%.

Nauru, Portuguese Timor, and Singapore should be dropped, none was an independent country until decades later and no one would ever guess them. Belarus would surely qualify under that rule (although no data for that at the wikipedia link.)

You could simply put an asterisk by the ones not independent at the time, and a note to explain that in the instructions.

You need to specify that the countries as they were called during WWII should be entered. Or else accept any answer of a modern country, say accept "Serbia" for "Yugoslavia". Overall there needs to be a lot more leeway. Latvia was part of the Soviet Union during WWII, I don't see why you would separate it out but not Ukraine, Georgia, etc. It's hard to say who Lithuania belonged to, both Germany and the USSR claimed Lithuania during the war.

I would be sceptical of the source...lies, damn lies and statistics!!!!
