Fun Fact: Soviet Mongolia?

Flag of communist Mongolia

It is rare for a country to request to be annexed by a bigger nation, but Mongolia had done it several times to the Soviet Union. Mongolia was already a puppet state of the Soviets, and Russia had nothing to gain by annexing them. They kept Mongolia nominally independent to use them as a bargaining chip if they ever needed it with Communist China.
