Keeping Scotland part of the UK will be one of the prime minister's biggest challenges.
The days when the British Empire ruled the world are long gone, and the UK is ever less important on the world stage. So why didn't politicians talk about it in the run-up to today's vote?
A simple question — "Should Scotland be an independent country?" — caused an unprecedented political awakening in England's northern neighbor and put the entire United Kingdom on a knife edge.
