I think Afghanistan and surrounding is a another close contender:

Factions that have ruled the region:
Achaemenid Empire
Macedonian Empire
Seleucid Empire
Bactrians
Scythians
Sakae
Parthian Empire
Kushan Empire
Sassanid Empire
Hepthalite
Kok Turuk
Caliphate
Saffarids
Bokhara
Ghaznavid Empire
Gurid Empire
Khwarezm-Shah Empire
Mongol Empire
Chagatai Khanate
Herat
Tamerlane's Empire
Safavid Empire
(various rulers) etc.

I generally agree with the statement that Mesopotamia/Iraq takes the title, but I'd like to mention Romania as well:

Dacians

Scythians

Greeks/Macedonians

Romans

Ostrogoths

Huns

Slavs

Avars

Bulgars

Magyars

Cumans

Petchenegs

Mongols

Vallachians/Moldavians

Turks

Poles

Russians

Austrians

Germans

Soviets (similar to Russia (I know, but there is a distinction)

And to add another important once ruler of Afghanistan: Great Seljuks. We should place them right before the Khwarezmshahs.

china and korea..... these lands have been conquered by so many different ethnic groups and also there were many civil wars that were fought in these lands......

 

i would say east asia (excluding japan) and europe were the places that have been conquered and reconquered.....

Hmm, yes Iran and Iraq seem to have been conquered quite many times...but of the European countries, Luxembourg has been conquered, or at least invaded, quite often. Because whenever there has been a war in Europe, Germany or France have allways invaded or conquered Luxembourg. And we are not talking of one or two invasions, but tens of them. I'm not that aware of Luxembourgish history, so I'm not really sure how many times this tiny country has been invaded, but as this is in the middle of "everything", it gets invaded by almost an accident

I haven't read the entire thread, but I'd put India up there (I'm lumping Pakistan with India for historical convienience) - that Khyber Pass was a natural conduit for invasion!

South America ?
Pal, Incan Peruvians are South Americans.
The Aztecs / Mexica are mesoamericans ( not Aztek ). And they were conquered only by the spaniards and their native allies. The empire lasted almost 100 years.
