Personally speaking,this sentence is a little bit rude.

The countries defeated easily are all small ones around, which get very close to the edge of the modern civilization. 吊打= defeated easily

well,there is not a subject for this sentence. so its potential means perhaps is ' it ' doesn't  dare  to fight with the really big power but bullys  surrounding small ones. 吊打 means doing something as easily as fighting with a man who is being bound in the air.

1:吊打:把人吊起来打,指 打人者打得对手毫无办法反抗,表示双方实力相差过于悬殊。

2:近代文明边缘:可以理解为边缘文明,最近1000年,主流文明和文化一直是欧美倡导的欧洲文明,如果某个国家之前和欧洲交往比较少,只是在近代被迫被动接受欧洲文明,那就是是边缘文明。

3:小国:一般指国土面积小的国家
