19th Century German Imperialism

What countries were subject to German imperialism pre-1900 (19th century to be specific)?
I'm wondering about which African countries in particular.

That'd be German East Africa, German South West Africa and German West Africa as for African colonies.

In the Pacific you had German New Guinea and German Samoa.

They also held smaller territories in China, them being Kiautschou Bay and Yantai.

They did get some odd bits - even tried to muscle in on Morocco. But 'German 'Imperialism' was more about the jostling for position among the European powers than conquest - Britain, Russia, France, Austria-Hungary.

All culminating in WWI of course.
