England & ScottlandEdit

Should we include England and Scotland in this list? They are technically nations, albiet not soveriegn ones (under control of the United Kingdom). Also, the article states that these are former nation-states, and they have existed independantly at certain points in history. Jaz talk 18:41, 20 May 2006 (UTC)

Speculation Edit

I removed the following for being a whole bunch of speculation:

The novelization of Star Trek states that the Riverside Shipyard is sometimes visited by "suits" - a common slang term for government officials - from Washington, Moscow, and Beijing. As these cities are, respectively, the capitals of the United States, Russia, and China - three of Earth's largest and most powerful nations - and have comparatively little industry (especially Washington, having been built for the sole purpose of being the capital city), this would suggest that, even with a fully united Human race, most Earth nation-states still existed in some form in the 23rd century.

All that establishes (in apocrypha) is that those cities have government officials. It takes a great leap of logic to assume that there are still countries from that. One could equally speculate that these cities represent Oceania, Eastasia and Eurasia. ;-) – Cleanse ( talk | contribs ) 04:14, December 18, 2010 (UTC)
