What is a single global government?
Something with more teeth than the United Nations or (gack) the European Union, I can tell you that right now.

In a general sense: There must be a single state that governs the entire planet. There can be multiple nations that are subordinate to it (much like US states make up the USA) but in the end, 'there can be only one'.
