Is there any country in the world that the UK/England hasn't been at war with??

Liberating countries from invasion doesn't count. So for example Belgium in WWI.

However if a country was part of an empire that Britain was at war with and has since become independent than that does count for example Korea in WWII.

Then Belgium does count. It has variously been part of the French and Spanish empires, with whom we have been at war while Belgium was part of their territory.

I think I found one. Central African Republic.

Unless the UK was involved in any of the peace keeping efforts since independence

... easy, Thailand. A buffer state of the colonial territories of the British Empire and French Indochina.

No, Vichy France was the Vichy France of South East Asia. French possessions in Indo-china were loyal to the Vichy regime.

Nope it was neutral in WW2 until it was invaded by Japan. Its declaration in 1942 won't count because it was under the regime of an invader.

Thailand was at War with Great Britain during WW2.
Like what I stated, it was invaded by Japan before it declared war on Britain. Like just because the Philippines had a government that was created by Japan and was anti American after the invasion, it does not mean the Philippines ceases to be an American ally. That is also true with Vichy France which cannot be said as a non ally of the British and the Americans.

Debatable to say the least.

Their was some initial resistance to the invasion but it quickly became collaboration and the Thai's willingly joined the Japanese to fight the British and French.
