On September 18th, voters in Scotland are scheduled to go to the polls and vote in a very straightforward referendum. Unlike the confusing referendum held in Puerto Rico in 2012 ,  the Scotland referendum poses a very simple question to voters.

The question on the ballot is simply “Should Scotland be an independent country?”. There are only two choices for the voter–Yes or No.

The question is simple, but the details are complicated. If Scotland were to leave the UK, many issues would have to be negotiated–the North Sea oil money, the UK national debt and Scotland’s part of it, the currency, citizenship, the status of UK military bases in Scotland.

What about NATO and the European Union?

Would an independent Scotland have a monarch?

As for what remains of the United Kingdom, would the UK have to change its official name again?
