At the heart of much speculative fiction (and fiction in general) is a question. What if? On Tuesdays I like to throw one out there and see what you make of it. Do with it as you please. If a for-instance is not specified, feel free to interpret that instance as you wish. And if you find this becomes a novel-length answer, I'd appreciate a thank you in the acknowledgements ;)
Last week I was in a social studies class, and I noticed a world map on the wall. It was one of those that had all the flags of the various countries of the world pictured. And it got me thinking about how in a lot of science fiction when people are dealing with other worlds, they only deal with one government. (I'm sure you all can tell me of examples where this is not true.) This made me wonder...
What if our world only had one government?
