Re: USA and UK surviving into the Trek era

Why wouldn't countries like the US and UK still exist even in Trek's time? They're simply subdivisions of the larger whole: United Earth.

And United Earth did not cease to exist when the Federation was born (it's simply a Federation member world), so there's no reason it should happen here either. As UE is a member of the Federation, so are the US and UK and other countries members of UE.
