An independent Scotland must take up many things previously supplied by UK. Such as national defense, NATO. Even patent office. And many more government services.


Scotland has a population of 5.5 million people. It is more populous than Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Ireland, Slovakia, and Slovenia. And Scotland has about the same population as Denmark, Norway and Finland.

Finland, Ireland, Denmark, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Slovakia, Slovenia are EU countries.

Denmark, Norway, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Slovakia, Slovenia are NATO countries.
