Today I would like to start the third article in a series on reasoning systems and declarative, executable specifications: GCHQ 2015 Crypto Puzzle Analysed. The material I prepared for this article on the 2015 GCHQ crypto puzzle was mothballed nearly a year ago now – and surely GCHQ will host a new puzzle this year. To date, I have not examined other people’s solution strategies as this would have spoiled the fun for me. I set out to solve this problem differently.

Wait a minute, though, you say, we know that Scotland is a country. It has its own flag and anthem and football team; its own legal and educational systems; it even has two national drinks. It must be a country.

But although most of us are convinced that Scotland is a country, I’m afraid it isn’t. Not if you consider a country to be a sovereign state. Slovakia, Latvia and Luxembourg are countries, but Scotland is a region.

If Scotland were a country, we would have the government we vote for at every election. If Scotland were a country, it would have a seat in the United Nations. If Scotland…
