Scottish National Parliament 2018
Congratulations, my fellow revolutionaries! It’s November 17, 2018, the first meeting of an independent Scottish parliament (well, kinda). Several challenges lie ahead of this parliament, including rejoining the European Union, reorganizing administrative capabilities of the government, and several external developments (specifically the fact that the United Kingdom still recognizes themselves as having control over Scotland). In this committee, as members of parliament, you are tasked with determining the future of Scotland. Whether Scotland descends into chaos or reemerges stronger than ever, it is up to you.
TL;DR: you guys are an independent Scottish parliament. You achieved independence through declaration. The UK doesn’t recognize your independence. Sound familiar?
