Scotland, you are not alone. See all the countries that have broken away from the UK [Map]

As the vote for independence in Scotland approaches, many people forget that the UK was once an empire that encompassed much of the world.

Here are all the countries that used to be part of the British Empire along with the date their independence was finally recognised by the UK.
