The United States of Earth
Desk, borders would exist. They just wouldn't be exclusive. Choose where you want to live. Anywhere.  Cast votes for that "state's" leadership. Abide by their customs & laws. You wouldn't mind the abiding because that's where you've chosen to live. It's all about equality and opportunity and advancement of the planet's peoples as a whole, not just your nation's tribe. There is only one tribe. Humans.
I love the idea. Maybe in a thousand years we'll evolve to where it's possible.

If I don't answer when you talk to me or about me, that's likely because I have you on ignore.  Try to PM me. It won't let you PM me if I have you on ignore. There are other people, not members, who peruse this site. I want THEM to know why I don't reply to everyone who talks to or about me.

Quote:History undefinedEdit
At some point, Earth was unified under one government and by all indications that government was the United States of America. Much of the structure of Earth’s Government is based on the American form of Democratic-Republicanism. Although it is possible that the world peacefully transitioned to this form of government at some point, given the past history of the planet, it seems far more likely that some sort of military conquest resulted in the unification of the planet. The planet later joined the Democratic Order of Planets after its forming at some point and subsequently became an important member of that organization and hosted its headquarters.

United States' Influence undefinedEdit
As noted above, Earth’s Government appears to be greatly influenced by the system of governance of the United States. This is manifested in several ways:
  • The three branch system of Government employed by the United States, (Executive, Legislative, and Judicial) is nearly identical to the system used by the Earth in the 31st century (see below for more details). This is further backed by the (re)election of Richard Nixon, which called into question the stipulation in the Constitution that nobody can serve more than two terms as President (although as a head he lacks a body and thus is immune to this and has been reelected to 3 terms: 3000, 3004, 3008).

  • The Earth Flag, Old Freebie, consisted of the thirteen red and white stripes of the American flag (Which was nicknamed "Old Glory" by WIlliam Driver), but with the stars replaced with an image of the Earth.

Chicken Dinner.
