There are a number of people, including but not limited to Bohr, Einstein, Meitner(!), Strassman, Kahn and so forth that were integral to the discovery of the nucleus, the mathematical proof that it could be done, and the initial tests that affirmed this, also before Rutherford.

There is however no country, laboratory, university or corporation, outside of the United States that invented the safe method, the applications, harnessing the energy and so on. One country invented applied nuclear fission, whether for energy purposes or weapons, and a whole lot more that got access to said knowledge.
