Scotland is a nation in Western Europe. It is situated in Great Britain, and is located in the northern half of the island. It only borders the United Kingdom to the south. It's otherwise surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean, the North Sea, the North Channel and the Irish Sea. It is made up of more than 790 islands, including the Northern Isles and the Hebrides.
The Kingdom of Scotland emerged as an independent sovereign state in the Early Middle Ages and continued to exist until 1707. By inheritance in 1603, King James VI of Scotland became King of England and King of Ireland, thus forming a personal union of the three kingdoms. Scotland subsequently entered into a political union with England on 1 May 1707 to create the new Kingdom of Great Britain. The union also created a new Parliament of Great Britain, which succeeded both the Parliament of Scotland and the Parliament of England. The Treaty of Union was agreed in 1706 and enacted by the twin Acts of Union 1707 passed by the Parliaments of both countries, despite popular opposition and anti-union riots in Edinburgh, Glasgow, and elsewhere. Great Britain itself subsequently entered into a political union with Ireland on 1 January 1801 to create the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland.
Scotland's legal system has remained separate from those of England and Wales and Northern Ireland, and Scotland constitutes a distinct jurisdiction in public and private law. The continued existence of legal, educational and religious institutions distinct from those in the remainder of the UK have all contributed to the continuation of Scottish culture and national identity since the 1707 union. Following a referendum in 1997, a Scottish Parliament was re-established, this time as a devolved legislature with authority over many areas of home affairs. The Scottish National Party, which supports Scottish independence, won an overall majority in the 2011 general election. An independence referendum held on 18 September 2014 passed, allowing Scotland to emerge as independent once more.
All the History of Scotland has been shortened to the events of modern day Scotland. However, older events can still be found on the History of Scotland page.
Back in 2013, preparations were made for Scottish independence, like the Scottish Independence Referendum Act. The Scottish National Party would set things in motion for the referendum, and in 2014, the 18th of September, the vote was held. With a small majority, it was passed, and final things were set in motion for Scotland to become officially independent.
Beginning of 2015, Scotland would be added as a nation to records, Scotland applied for membership in the European Union and the United Nations as well. One of the current President's actions was to ask President of France François Hollande about the Auld Alliance. While they were interested in keeping their alliance in place, they weren't sure if they should continue to use the name Auld Alliance.
