The word "protectorate."

The word protectorate means a small alliance that is protected by a protector.

Do not use this word to mean the opposite: a large alliance that is protecting something. This is backwards.

Do not say "protectee." That's not a word, which is why Mozilla's spellcheck just underlined it on my screen.

Thank you for your cooperation. :)
