So far these are unsubstianted claims. Source? Or is it just you pounding your chest?

As for Scotland, according to Wiki per capita GDP is just a few k below UK GDP, like 28k vs 30k. However this is based on just a very quick check, looking forward to your hopefully more accurate numbers and links.
No, nothing official. Scotland trades more with the U.K. than the eu, it gets loads of money from the U.K. Government, oil has collapsed, it couldn't just join the euro, it would be a poor outpost going quickly bust. Polls show more people would reject independence now than when the first referendum took place (I found some economist article on that).

Nothing official though, could all be bollocks.
