Daily Kos : The "Coalition of the Billing"
Kos has an excellent post that I am cribbing here, but feel free to click over to the story to participate in the dialog.
So here’s the best data on the status of Bush’s coalition of the billing:
1. United Kingdom: 12,000 (will decrease to 10,500 in near future)
- Italy: 3,169
- South Korea: 2,800 (will increase to 3,600)
- Poland: 2,400 (gradual complete pullout in 2005)
- Ukraine: 1,400 (complete pull out over next few months?)
- Netherlands: 1,345 (complete pullout by March 2005)
- Romania: 700
- Japan: 750
- Denmark: 496
- Bulgaria: 485 (pulling out 20 of those in near future)
- El Salvador: 380
- Hungary: 300 (complete pullout by March 2005)
- Australia: 920
- Mongolia: 180
- Georgia: 159 (850 by end of 2004)
- Azerbajian: 151
- Portugal: 128
- Latvia: 122
- Czech: 110 (down to 10 in near future)
- Lithuania: 105
- Slovakia: 105
- Albania: 71
- Estonia: 55
- Tonga: 45
- Kazakhstan: 29
- Macedonia: 28
- Moldova: 12

That makes for a total of 23,900 troops, over half from the Brits.
Countries who have already pulled out: Thailand, Spain, Honduras, Dominican Republic, Nicaragua, Philippines, Singapore, and New Zealand. Armenia was supposed to offer a 50-man contingent, but that is now up in the air. Fiji will send 130 troops to serve as security for the UN mission.
