Kyle most likely it would be located in southern Europe. Around Italy, southern Germany, and Switzerland.

Think about it. It has access to the world's two largest oceans. It has the capability to receive shipments from all areas in the globe with ease. It has the best possibility with all sea-faring traffic as well, due to the routes that link the two great oceans. Military units would be able to defend this area with ease as well.

Just another two bits of mine.
If there was a world gov't, why would we have to defend the capital. It sounds like your dependent on a revolution of sorts.

In the event of such a situation, a position like this would be needed. And who says that the government won't have people against it? For all we know, the government could be a Totalitarian regime.

Your point has no sense. I may support communism, but you must have
completely misread my post. I said that a place that would be easily defended would be ideal in case of a revolution or a seceding or even a Coup.

A Junta is essentially a Coup. Not to mention the time in which a world capital will be achieved, if ever achieved, will be in the future. Also take note in the fact that this is not just a small group of people in a single nation that could be angry. We're talking whole countries that could revolt.

So Kyle Glenn Bradley your saying there would be a (mostly) guerrilla fighting force(unless it was back by a bigger nation.) Then all the countries loyal to the government would nuke the hell out of at least most of the dissedents. Causing to be glassed over. Sorry for the halo reference.

I never said they would be unorganized or even a Guerrilla-warfare force. I'm just saying that an easily defendable position would be a good place. So from this, its obvious you have skewed my point. I also doubt nuclear warfare would be used. The repercussions for the world would be astonishing, it could lead to political questioning or worse. It would lead to enviromental effects that would effect the entire globe.

So all in all, your post and logic makes no sense.

A good military defense position is important. But I just think the world would pick a more temperate location like my earlier posts said.

I would also like to point out that the use of my name was to elicit some kind of emotional or personal response from me, as it was very unneeded. The position of city is fine. Also remember, the World's capital would most likely be the most advanced, so Panama would likely see a huge overhaul.

Care to explain how? Rome and New York are both port cities with significant historical value. The Roman Empire ruled "The World" for a period of relatively 600-700 years, while Germany held the same position for closer to 5. Even after the Roman Empire fell, Rome retained it's influence throughout the continent and had a huge cultural impact on Europe and the colonies of Europe, putting it's total time in the spotlight around 2000 years. Rome is the most historically significant human city since Babylon. Berlin however, has only impacted the rest of the world for a brief moment in the first half of the 20th century, and the effect it had is universally agreed to have been negative.

But this is assuming you were speaking of Rome. New York is a port city as well, making it easily accessible for the shipment of goods, something that would be a huge deal for the capitol of the world. New York has the most diverse gene pool in all of the world, which means that out of all the world's current cities it would represent humanity the best.

Bern is a strong contender though. If the city is to be chosen, not founded, then one likely choice would be one which is renowned for it's neutrality and love for peace.

If we ignore the fact that the Kingdom of Germany was effectively in charge of the Holy Roman Empire for quite a large sum of those years, and if we ignore the German Empire, which was quite a major player in Europe in the early 20th Century, and if we ignore Germany and, more importantly, Berlin as the point of continual conflict and thus a major focus of the Cold War, and if we ignore the first year of World War II, then yes, Berlin has only effected the world in an extremely major way for about five years. Of course, with that in mind, the only real contenders are going to be Rome, Babylon, and maybe Cairo.

You see, the thing that makes Berlin so ideal is location. If you look at a regular map, Berlin is practically smack dab in the center of the developed world. It is about halfway between the United States and China, and geographically near the heart of Europe. Berlin is a large city that is culturally diverse, especially after the whole Cold War incident, and is financially sound.

And that's not even getting into the fact that Italy is deeper into debt than Ireland is!

The issue is that no European will want the capital of the world to be in the United States, because everyone outside of the United States can't get over hating us with every fiber of their being. Not to mention that putting the capital in Europe may appease the Chinese, who will undoubtably be very upset if the capital is not only in the United States, but in the least accessible city of the United States to them.

I think the thing that makes Bern such a strong contender is that Switzerland is a militarily secure nation and Bern is practically already the economic capital of the world. I mean, what rich motherfucker doesn't have a Swiss bank account?
