Some concerns about this, depending on the definition of 'participated'. Spain, Sweden and Ireland were, I thought, allegedly neutral. Belarus and Ukraine were surely part of 'Russia' at that time, so should be included if the definition is of 'modern countries'. Alternatively, Croatia was surely part of 'Yugoslavia' at that time so shouldn't be there if you mean 'countries as they were in 1936-45'. And the Indian forces (probably drawn from what is now Pakistan, India and Bangladesh) would be very miffed to be excluded.

The Netherlands was occupied by Germany, so they should be included. Laos, Cambodia and Burma (or Myanmar if you're going by today's names) were all occupied by Japan. Abyssinia (Ethiopia today) was taken by Italy. There was also fighting in Libya and possibly other north African countries (I'm not sure which ones). I would also suggest using the historical names rather than modern names. At least for me, that's how I think of the names.

There are many countries missing here - what about the Netherlands, Luxembourg, Korea, Iraq, Ethiopia, ...

Typing "and" removes a space between Japan and New Zealand. Also, I agree with the above commenters; state whether you want the current or historical nations.

Yes, because I you have Russia, Belarus and Ukraine seperately, you should also have the Baltic countries on here.
