First, should not the phrase at the end of your sentence be, "perhaps the world"?

If so, what is being talked about is the influence and/or control that his country had on the Caribbean, or perhaps the world.

"At one time, the British had colonies in areas located throughout the entire world. As their empire has diminished, they have lost their grip on many of the places with which they had formerly had influence and control."

Miller is correct. This question should have been placed in the "English" forum.
