The Economist's Skintland Cover

About

This map of Scotland was the front cover page of The Economist of 14th April 2012. The map depicts Scotland as an island with a southern sea border in place of England. Geographical names were replaced with jokey names insinuating that Scotland would be skint outwith the UK.
