You didn't give a list of options. The British had an empire which expanded across the globe, and the list would be a very long one of former British colonies. Ireland, Cyprus, Zimbabwe (nee Rhodesia), South Africa, Palestine, Jordan, Egypt, the Sudan, Singapore, Canada, the United States, a good portion of the Caribbean, Australia... those are just a few.
