The one world government in this debate would be a Republic. Each country would be made up of provinces with their own local legislatures, executives, and judicial branches. Each country would then have national legislatures, executives, and judicial branches. And then this global government would have its own legislature, executive and judicial branches. The legislature would be bicameral with an upper and lower house. The lower house would be the house of representatives. Each country would have one representative for 16,091,954 people. This is to keep down the house to a manageable size of 435 representatives in the lower house. The upper house would be called the senate and be made up of 392 senators. 2 from each country and 1 vote for each senator. This ensures smaller countries still have a say, as every country has equal power in the upper house, preventing tyranny of large nations. Representatives and Senators would be voted by the people of their respective countries.

TL;DR: Basically like murican system.

A one world government should be an amazing thing but the world's government could not come to that agreement for an example think of north Korea they are a dictatorship they would not agree with this system they would follow there own path and that could start another world war the world's governments also have many different views such as Russia and America they have multiple different views on how the world should be run that would cause many disagreements and possibly war these disagreements could send us into a major gridlock which could take years to get out of.

While many countries such as China, Iran, Russia, North Korea, and so on, may have issues with a one world government, they will eventually concede if the rest of the world exerts strong diplomatic and economic pressure on them. There are many steps we can take to transition. For example, the merger of America and Canada makes a great deal of sense. I shall refer to this union as the "North American Union". The NAU would be the largest nation on the Earth, with vast resources protected by the most powerful and feared fighting force in the history of man. Canada and the United States would be able to get along quite well after a few key issues are solved. (Healthcare, government, election systems). I think many sensible Americans would be open to adopting quite a few Canadian systems. Canada and America share a history of colonialism in the new world. We have a huge relatively undefended border between each other. Our two peoples are bonded together in an alliance. We respect each other, for the most part. (We are sorry that the American Government doesn't always treat you fairly 100% of the time, but that will change with this union).

An even better merger, would be the merging of Canada, US, UK, Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand. We all have a shared common history. We all had a relationship Great Britain. We have a common language! (Though, we have difficulty understanding thick Aussie and Kiwi accents..) We can form a very strong economic and military union and still retain independence for the most part. We can merge our economies and have far greater military cooperation. (For instance, one military and national guard type forces that operate under their home regions control.) Let us join together, and beat back the menace to democracy that is Russia, China, Iran, and North Korea. Names for this union are still up to debate. We could be the English Union, but this would be reference to our common tongue, not necessarily the English as in like British English. Ireland could finally be reunited as one region, a piece of the bigger picture! With this huge merge, the enemies of democracy and liberty will be quaking in their boots. We can exert huge amounts of pressure onto them with economic sanctions and diplomatic condemnation. I think Europe would not be hugely difficult to convince. The English Union and European Union could merge and form a MASSIVE economic and military union. This new "First World Union" will be a mighty force. All current Militaries of the European countries will be reclassified as Defense forces of their home countries. For example, the French Military would now be the French Defense Force or Home Guard. English would be the language for the Union as a whole. Europeans could join the Union's military, but the operating language should be English. Their home-guards will use their respective language of their home country. The European countries could still have their own laws and local government systems and everything. This union will just be for economic and military purposes, uniting the forces of Democracy and Liberty under one banner. When the first world has a clear unified voice, our enemies will fear us. We will give direct aid to developing nations, and help stomp out their corruptions and dictatorships. South African is already pretty developed, so they could join right off the bat if they want. South Korea and Japan are developed nations with strong ties to the US, so they would be suitable candidates. Once a great majority of the world has joined into one union, we will have victory. We don't need Russia or China anymore. We can stop all trade with them, and shut down our borders with them. Punish them. Don't accept any of their trade. They will be forced into action, either war or conformity. We will easily win a conventional war. The only concern would be nuclear war, but we could survive it. We could quickly deploy anti missile systems to be close to Russia and China, diminishing their nuclear capability, and greatly increasing our survivorability. They only have 3 options. 1. Suicidal attack against our great union. 2. Somehow survive with barely any international trade occurring between them and the world. 3. Conform.

As you can see, once the First World and other nations join together to form this great union, Russia, China, Iran, DPRK, have no hope of standing in our way. We can exist without them. We do not need them. They need us. Once we cut off ALL trade with them, and only trade within the union, they will cease to have economies. They will most likely collapse, and then we can set up new, less corrupt democratic republican governments.
