Is Scotland a country? Me and my father are having a big debate about this. I think Scotland isn’t a country. My father thinks it is.?



It is a constituent country that is part of the larger United Kingdom along with England, Wales, and Northern Ireland.


I am originally from Edinburgh, Scotland...We are a country.


It is a country in the United Kingdom. Look it up on Google.


I note that you subscribed to this site only a few minutes ago. Welcome. If you both did just the tiniest bit of research you would soon discover that Scotland is a country in its own right but is a member of the United Kingdom which is made up primarily of England, Northern Ireland, Wales and Scotland. All these are individual countries.

Father knows best. Scotland is a nation.


The United Kingdom (UK) or Great Britain (GB) is made up from 4 different, very separate countries. England, (capital London) Wales, (Cardiff) Scotland (Edinburgh) and Northern Ireland (Belfast).


Gov't is killing you with high frequency electricity.Theotokos Virgin Mary gave prayers to "Schema-nun Antonia" on how to save aborted babies from hell. If you pray these prayers diligently, aborted babies are released from hell. On each painted nail there are 40 demons. Smoking is censer to the devil.Using foul language calls upon Pagan deities (aka demons); Holy Spirit departs on 7 meters. People who use drugs see demons who cleverly disguise themselves as ghosts and aliens.America will be last country to switch to Euro (antichrist's world currency). Contraceptives = abortion;using contraceptives for 1 year = 5 aborted kids.Miscarriages happen because of high heels; cesarean because of tight pants (second generation cesarean will be infertile).Unbaptized aborted/miscarried/unborn babies burn in hell for until Final Judgement; if pregnant, keep the kid and deliver at home because kids are chipped using IVs and vaccines in hospitals. Dentists and doctors chip patients secretly. Ultrasound leads to mark of the beast; don't do ultrasound, please. Abortion leads to breast cancer; a demon is released from hell for each aborted kid. Dogs can become possessed; don't keep dogs inside your home [Pelageya of Ryazan]. Walmart has technology to administer mark of the beast to those who have cat bacteria in their stomachs; stay away from cats [Afanasiy Sidyachiy]. Next false flag is the Statue of Liberty. Above earth there is ice (hemisphere); when rockets go up they bring ice down from upper sky to lower sky; ice stuck in lower sky will fall on us during Apocalypse. Earth is flat; earth stands on 3 pillars (the Most Holy Trinity); pillars stand on water at zero Kelvin; underneath this ice there is a bubble; and then the abyss. Zodiac is planetary prison of demons; don't believe in horoscopes or you'll exhibit the traits of the trapped demons. Most thoughts and dreams are from demons; demons never do good. Sleep fully clothed; pray the Jesus prayer. Pray to your guardian angel to have normal sleep. Vyacheslav Krasheninnikov was the last prophet before Apostle John (who wrote the Book of Revelation), Enoch, Elijah, resurrected Seraphim of Sarov, and resurrected Sergius of Radonezh will preach against the antichrist. Humans were created about 7525 years ago. Birds participate in time creation. It's a sin to kill birds. Dinosaurs live under our level; they will get out through sinkholes and lakes; to kill them, go for their nerves. Save the birds; but kill the dinosaurs. First dinosaur will come out of Volga River in Russia. Scientists don't see dinosaurs under our level because of radiation. Sinkholes happen because people dig for resources underground and because earth is heating up. Demons grow human skin (from a sample taken during abduction) and put it on so as to look like us. Demons will invite people to be healed inside their UFOs; those who go will be like zombies after. Gov't provides demons with diamonds and allows demons to abduct people. If you're being abducted, slowly pray the Jesus prayer. Don't panic. Demons use diamonds and souls to power their UFO craft. The bigger the diamond, the more it lasts. Demons have 4 UFO bases: 1)moon 2)inside fake mountain Kailash in Tibet 3)in lake Baikal in Russia 4)in Atlantis which is underneath the Mariana Trench in Pacific Ocean. There are no aliens. Nobody lives on other planets. Airplanes that go down are hit by demons because they need the airspace to fight Jesus. Antichrist is pale with red eyes. He's possessed by Satan since he's 12 years old [Lavrentiy Chernigovskiy]. He flies super fast; deceived people will say: "Christ is here; Christ is there" when he's flying from one city to the next very fast. He wears gloves to hide long nails. He's surrounded by demons who appear as angels of light. Antichrist will trick people that he can do mountain moving and resurrection using holograms/hypnosis; fire from the sky is real because of pollution gases in the atmosphere. Antichrist will have food only for 6 months; then he will feed his 666ed people flour from mashed up turtles (Tavrion Batozskiy), but this won't be enough because 666ed people are 10 times as angry and 7 times as hungry as normal people even though 666ed people became shorter (3-4 feet tall = 80 - 120 cm) because nanochips do function of organs (organs diminish) [Nilus Myrrhgusher]. If you have a lot of nanochips in your forearm, then you will not be able to make proper Orthodox sign of the cross (last mercy for you will be to cut your forearm off). Nanochips are sprayed by the gov't using chemtrails; they're also in gov't food and medicine; so, eat food from your own garden. In case garden is destroyed by ice from the sky, have chickens for eggs and goats for milk (Paisios). Lipstick contains cells of aborted fetuses, dog fat, and placenta; human flesh is in McDonalds, Pepsi, toothpaste, antiaging, anticancer, vaccines, perfume, etc.; that's why you should not be using anything that modern society has to offer. You're better off hiding within a 10-12 people group in order to escape Apocalypse. During Apocalypse, Chrtistians will eat dirt from under pussywillowtree as it's filled with tears of Theotokos Virgin Mary; this water will flee if a 666ed person tries to get it. Barcode is Druid black magic curse; QRcode is Mayan curse; when food is scanned, it becomes dead because laser is a substance from demons. Don't go into a UFO to be healed by demons. Green 666 is given by isotope rays on wrist or forehead when people stretch hands to receive small plastic grey card with no name on it (World Passport). It doesn't just have to be during this procedure (could be anything you sign up for or anywhere where there is a secret scanner); biometrics (fingerprints, eyes scan) or getting picture for passport are very dangerous because they could mark you secretly. Gabriel Urgebadze said that they do it on index finger when they scan your finger. Basically, try to avoid new documents at all cost. Police will microchip and isotope ray people on highways. Chipped people will be influenced by computers to take grey plastic card; but when they do, green mark by isotope rays is given on forehead/wrist. Food stores will isotope ray people too. Antichrist will also release prisoners to mark people. Reject 666 at all cost because it leads to permanent hell. If you're about to be marked, pray the Jesus prayer. Hide with Orthodox Christians to escape 666; leave all electronics behind so that antichrist's minions can't track you; burn documents because they're from Satan. The Most Holy Trinity gives you a name during baptism; devil gives an antiname during antibaptism (ex. Social Security Number). People who die with these Satanic documents go to concentration camp in hell to await Final Judgement; once the BEAST Computer is burned down, souls will be released for Final Judgement. That's why you should give back documents of your deceased relatives back to the gov't so that the gov't cancels these digital antichristian names given during antibaptism by the beast system; or just burn these documents because gov't could get upset and could send demons to mark you because of this outright act of defiance. Prophecy from half a millenium ago describes Final Judgement like this: Jesus was very upset with people who had little boards (plastic cards) in their hands because they wanted discount from the antichrist. Give to charity in the name of Archangel Michael; he rescues people from temporary hell twice a year [at midnight between September 18 and September 19 and similarly on November 20-21; pray at these times on your knees remembering the deceased by names (adding "and relatives by flesh up to Adam") so that they are rescued if they're in hell] (or brings them up a level, that is, to a level with less punishment; eventually, people are freed). Feed the pigeons; when pigeons bow down, people are saved from temporary hell. It's a big sin to remember the dead with wreaths (because demons put these wreaths on their necks if they're in hell with their hands tied up behind their back while hanging by their hands), meat, alcohol, sweets, and worldly music. Demons print icons of saints in newspapers so that you throw these newspapers in the trash blaspheming these saints. Crosses on soles of shoes and back of pants are blasphemy. Demons make carpets with crosses and put them on sidewalks so that people walk on crosses. Playing cards mock how Jesus suffered on the cross: clubs (cross on which Jesus was crucified), diamonds (four nails Jesus was crucified with), hearts (sponge with vinegar that Jesus was given to drink),spades (spear with which Jesus was pierced).Cremation is devil worship; only blasphemers such as Lenin should be burned; if Lenin is buried, earth will be polluted, and China will attack Russia because of this.After China attacks Russia, Ruski Orthodox Tsar (shown by resurrected Seraphim of Sarov) will come to power in Russia;this Tsar will slay traitors inside church and gov't; as a result, Russia will be the only country not under the antichrist.Ecumenism = 263 heresies;each heresy leads to hell. In 2006 in Moscow (that's why Moscow will sink),representatives from most religions signed a document where it says that all religions worship the same Supreme Being [aka the devil]. Priests who participate in ecumenism will have Pagans walking on their heads in hell. Arkhimandrite Antonin Kapustin left a prophecy that John the Baptist's living space will become a church and it will be blessed by forerunner of antichrist; Patriarch Kirill of Russia blessed this church.When priests pray for current gov't (instead of praying for future Tsar),Jesus gets up from His throne and turns His back to them. Forgive me.

Scotland is a country


If you think Scotland isn't a country, what do you think it is and why.


Scotland IS a country. It has its own legal system and currency system. It is one of the constituent nations of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. It is NOT a province nor subordinate colony of England. Most nationalist Scots would be horrified if you thought Scotland was NOT a country.


Yes, Scotland is a country. It has its own government (legislative, executive and judicial branches). However, it is not an independent sovereign state, but is part of one, viz. The United Kingdom (UK) [of Great Britain and Northern Ireland]. Together with England and Wales, Scotland makes up Great Britain. The UK is not a federal country. All of the Scottish Government's powers are devolved from the UK Government. The UK Government could take those powers away; although, that is most unlikely.


Scotland is one of the countries in the United Kingdom. This includes England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. It is a country.

Scotland is a country, with its own parliament. It is within the overall boundaries of the UK, as are England, Wales, and Northern Ireland. In recent decades there have been moves and a referendum within Scotland to gain its independence from the UK. So far those moves have failed, but expect further agitation of that sort when (if?!) the UK eventually exists from the EU (Brexit). If Scotland becomes independent of the UK it is very likely that it will seek to re-join the EU.


It is part of The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.


It is a non-sovereign country. That is, it is a country, but it is not sovereign, so it doesn't fully rule itself. It's more like a state within the United Kingdom. That's the key - you need to know the difference between sovereign and non-sovereign countries. So you're both right in different meanings of "country". The thing is that Scotland was independent until 1707, so it WAS a sovereign country and there isn't really any other word to use than "country". But since 1707, the sovereign country is the United Kingdom and Scotland is part of it. Scotland does have a parliament and government BUT it was the UK government and parliament that put them there, and it could take that away if it wanted. And the Scottish Parliament and government don't have power over everything - there is much that stays with the UK Parliament and government, such as defence and foreign relations. So Scotland is not sovereign over itself.


Scotland used to be a country in its own right, with its own monarch, and laws. However, Scotland also had royal relatives in England, and when Queen Elizabeth died in 1603, James VI, King of the Scots, inherited the English throne and became King of England and King of Ireland, making a personal union of the three kingdoms. Over 100 years later, Under the reign of Anne, on 1 May 1707, Scotland formed an even closer union by law with Ireland and England to create the new Kingdom of Great Britain.

I'm not sure how this ended up in the Music section, but..


yes of course it is..


Scotland is a constituent country within the United Kingdom. So officially it's not a country on it's own. They can for example not compete in the olympics as "Scotland", or participate in the UN, so I would say you where right.


It is a 'Zone'. Like the one around Chernobyl.


Are you not embarrassed by your ignorance? A quick Google could have answered this.

No its not it is part of the UK, your father should know this by job applications he would have filled in that asks which country you are from and nationality, you don't put Scotland and Scottish, you put United Kingdom and British.
