Hey guys, let's talk about this. If a period of Global government did arise, what do you think would become the capitol?

And sure, most of us on this board might be ready for a leaderless future run by enlightened technology, but a lot of the normals aren't there yet and they're probably gonna need a transition phase.

The obvious choices seem like the big ones. The ones with a lot of history and institutions. It'd be kind of cooler if they went with something smaller though, like how a lot of US state's biggest cities aren't the capitols.

What would you nominate?

Choosing any existing city as the capitol of world government would put tremendously outsized importance on the country the city originally belonged to. I would specifically not nominate any existing city.

Much in the same way the US Capitol was a constructed city outside of any state precisely to produce neutrality, I would think the world government would establish a new city specifically for the purpose of being the global capitol. It could be some kind of advanced integrated arcology. Maybe it would be built in the middle of the ocean to give it intrinsic physical neutrality and extra-territoriality. Maybe it would be a diplomatic UN-in-space style space station? it might be our last, best hope for peace...DUH DUH DUH THH Who knows?

Some shithole turned into a concrete labyrinth situated in Greenland.

Dogger Bank, build a city on an artificial island. It's in a sea surrounded by politically stable countries. Also, the ones end up funding the construction would likely be major economies that are near the area and likely want the new capital close by.
