Unlikely to be any.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daylight_saving_time_by_country lists 69
countries that observe clock changes and 175 that don't. You may argue with
their definition of "country" (I wouldn't consider Guernsey a separate
country) but it's clear that less than a third do.

If the EU's plans go ahead then at least 39 of those 69 will stop
observing it.
