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.
Sure, they could exist, but as what? Nation-states? Administrative territories?
Probably nation-states, same as before. I'm sure they send representatives to the United Earth parliament, and have to abide by UE rules, but still exist nonetheless. Just like Federation member worlds are separate entities, but report to the Federation government.
