A protectorate nation is a nation with a poor military and general unrest among the ethnic groups. To solve this, they sacrifice some political freedom to a more powerful country, usually a G7 / G8 nation which intervenes in their political affairs as a reward for keeping the population under control.
Most of Africa is former British protectorate.
