    If the world was to be under one government which country would best fit that dynamic?

    I think it should be like Switzerland. (I mean the government only, not any other aspect like economy defense etc.)

    i agree with Sun Pen 50. switzerland is probably the only country that i would want to use as a leader of the world government.

    Switzerland? Isn't their tax rate like 60%? That means every 1000 hours you work, you get paid for 400. The other 600 are for free. That's called SLAVERY.

    I will stick with the US Constitution and all the rights it guarantees, but we got to have honest representatives to make it really work. All these crooked politican's have us working for free as it is, but its only between 30-40%, not 60%.

    Good question!

    That dynamic does not exist and likely never will.  Governments and countries are about people of like minds and desires.  The world does not approach even close to that model and realistically probably will never attain such a level without a significant compromise on the part of various societies in the world.  That is not likely in the Muslim religion or the Buddhists.  There are many perspectives around the glove which are driven at their roots by religion...age old religion. These people are not going to turn away from that approach to life...they have proven that.  At the same time, the Christian world is not likely to wrap it's arms around a return to the middle ages in which women are second class citizens and laws are enforced in a religious philosphy. One government exists because people are bound together for a common purpose even though they do not all think exactly the same. In general, they want the same things but may disagree as to how they get there.  We must understand that aspect of reality before we begin dreaming about one world and globalization.  WB

    Despite it's ill and imperfection America is a country representing both hope and example to half a world wanting the rights and freedoms that they themselves have never known. The other half is utterly dependent upon who she is to sustain some semblence of world stability when every other yields responsibility. We have problems, but, they pale in the light of all the others. A country is ultimately the reflection of it's people and there is a goodness in Americans generally silent until someone in the world needs them. They generally come. America is governed by the consent of the people and they are fiercely independent. I hope to see it grow in to a more perfect union. The wonder of America is she is free to do so.

    Economically the world will have to come to a point where there is one governing body. As for religions, it took the Christians up to 100 years ago to come ahead of itself and accept women as first class citizen, as well as, different races and social classes. Eventually all religions will conform to the dynamics of the world, or suffer a mass exodus.
    Myself being Canadian think our system is much more effective than most but not perfect in any way. We do have relatively high taxes (nowhere close to Switzerland or Swedens) but we have universal health care and a fairly low amount of homeless people. Our military is based on peacekeeping, not conquest(or control).

    Australia. One of the few countries that survived the GFC.

    I think China would be the best of the contenders for this since it has always governed in a disciplined manner and coped all the problems well. Recently it has shown a tremendous increase in its power over the globe. Not only this its cultural heritage is also rich and the history states it to be a powerful country under all times............

    I would go with the United States. Despite its faults, the US is still the most minority-friendly country in the world. I've been to other countries before and even though they claim to be socially liberal, they're actually still pretty racist (France, surprisingly, is afraid of becoming a minority dominated country in the future and thus is constantly prompting its pure, French citizens to have more children).

    Humanity is so fragmented that the thought of a 1 world gov't, as we currently exist, is impossible.
    Mankind will, necessarily, have to be reduced in numbers first to a point that it can be governed.
    There is no doubt that social but predatory man must be controlled if he is to continue to survive.
    Einstein stated (paraphase) that the advent of the atom bomb made a 1 world gov't necessary if man is to survive as a species.
    Humankind is headed for a disaster. It may be that which will reduce him in numbers to the point that in the next millenia a 1 world gov't will become a reality.
    Man will not become extinct, but he will be regressed to the stone age where he will mutate into a human we would not recognize today.
    There will be great minds that will have taken refuge underground, which will return to the surface to , again, gain control and begin the processes of adaption and progress.
    Hopefully man will have learned by experience that the old ways didn't work and create "control" guided by a desire to survive  as a species.

    One that recognizes the peoples right to oversee those they put into positions of trust over the public purse as well as the trust the people give their elected representtives to do what the people expect of them.In other words one that recognizes the limitations the people expect.them to be bound by.

    That teaches it's offspring the importance of mutual respect for others and their beliefs.Even if they may disagree with eachother.Not to force any belief system on anyone.

    One that does not allow those who create wealth to lord it over anyone for personal power and attempts to take over the reins of government.by limiting what they can do with their wealth.
    Where making money is not an end unto itself,but used for the betterment of everyone through infrastructure and the commonwealth.That could not be created without everyones participation.Non too poor and non too rich.with a healthy and prosperous middleclass at it's core.   

    One that recognizes the importance of education of their children at a very early age and the ability of the very young to learn to read and write simple sentances before the age of 3 or 4 years of age.That does all it can to improve civilixzation with each passing generation.

    Good luck in finding such a government. If,it exists ,It's probably very small,If if it exists  at all.I'm hope it has a highly advanced technology and the ethics and morality that is required to go along with it.
