My view of what would occur is that if There is only one government we wont need a standing army to defend ourselves against other nations as there wont be any (note i do not sugest we get rid of all military forces). Therefore most of the military budget can be redirected into space programs. (imho the most important thing we can fund at this time).
I believe that untill this occurs no one nation is going to be capable of funding the kind of space programs needed to really truly begin learning about the vast ocean of space we live in.
sadly i dont think this will ever be possible untill we begin looking at eachother as earthlings instead of british,american,french,indian etc.
untill people view others as equals i dont think any one governing entity would ever work.

Soon the rest of the world followes. One Government follows. I would welcome this. I would hope that it would help the world focus on going up.

Well... As long as it's my ideology.

The 1 'country' would have to be split up into about 100 states (similar to the U.S system) because 1 man (president) wouldn't be able to control an entire world.
Then, one state would have a conflict of interest with another (for any reason, land? oil? culture? religion? anything), then, they would either attack the other state or threaten the entire country.
Then, they would either break free, or be flattened (via missiles :L), if they break free, others would want independence, then more would, then more, then more, untill there are 100 countries, and we're back to where we started.
Different groups of people = Conflict of interest, e.g muslim culture wouldn't go with European society, laws published in America wouldn't satisfy strict Arabs, etc. People are just to different to be groups together.
Its impossible for it to work.
