M – Ministy of Defence - Gone AWOL, like those Trident submarines, whose absence from the River Clyde removes Scotland from NATO.
N - Nine point two (9.2 per cent), Scotland's share of UK GDP. At £145 billion, this puts its global economic influence on par with Pakistan and Qatar.
O - Oatmeal - lunch (and dinner too once the oil revenues, on which 15 per cent of tax take relies, dry up)
P - Private equity - big investors in Aberdeen oil services companies but largely immune from looming tax changes.
Q - Quebec, now twinned with Edinburgh, and template for capital flight - even if the French Canadian providence narrowly avoided independence.
R - Royal Bank of Scotland, now neither royal or Scottish but grappling with £5.6 billion pension funding gap. Meanwhile, an independent Scotland will shell out £400 million to set up new benefits system disentangled from UK Department of Work and Pensions.

S – Scotcoin: a growing alternative to the 'Alex', as bitcoin lookalike doesn't need a central bank at all.
T- Trust, vanishing as the 42 investment trusts based in Scotland, like Alliance Trust, look to relocate.
U- Universities. Still free, but under pressure as the proud new government sets about the nation's 3 per cent budget deficit.
V - Vandalism And Malicious Mischief Insurance. Vital for properties that are not occupied, like most of Edinburgh's financial district.
W - The Windsors. Alex Salmond may call Queen Elizabeth II the "Queen of Scots", but everyone knows she's not amused.
X - X-Ray machines, more see-through than ever as Scotland is forced to cut health spending by £1 billion a year to tackle its deficit.
Y - Yoof. The 109,533 16- and 17-year-olds given the vote, even though they'd be booted out of the boozer. 90pc registered to vote. Sobriety not tested.
Z - ZZZ - Scotland's new credit rating if it reneges on its UK debts and SNP's former deputy leader Jim Sillars delivers his "day of reckoning" to pro-union companies. Otherwise might enjoy the same rating, Moody's reckons, as Botswana.
