Re: USA and UK surviving into the Trek era
I think some of you are overthinking this and missing the point.
Picard is from 'France' as is stated in the show....however that does not mean 'France' in the modern sense. It is simply a region, a geographical area. NOT an independent, autonomous body.
As David.Blue rightly says, many areas still exist and are referred to....but they are no longer part of the old body. For example, Bavaria was once a Kingdom....now it is merely a province.

We must question the story logic of having an all-knowing, all-powerful God, who creates faulty Humans, and then blames them for his own mistakes. - Gene Roddenberry
