can you be more specific as to the meaning of "huge" e.g. do you mean huge as in powerful, huge as in population, etc.

if it's managed well then yes. if not, then no. I imagine the whole world coming together as one nation in the future. We're closer then you think e.g. the United Nations

Ok huge nation means one country, but if the gov controls every country then it would just rule the world. Some form of government controls every country already.

Do you think its best to have a dictator or a government have control over the entire planet? If not why?
Sorry this is my first poll

Good (but that depends).

Economically there could be unified national interest. I surmise, if plausible, a unified currency to stabilize markets and prices in regions (each economic zone undoubtedly would be subjected to their own area-economy rules). The nationalizing corporations and assets, forcibly seizing from entities that claim ownership to better extract and allocate resources and averting petty conflict. Resources would be more readily available for extraction. Some regions of the world are materially poor and offer little resource contributions, so I wouldn't be surprised if they were forsaken entirely, home to outcasts and malcontents, or repurposed to accommodate some form of production (e.g. renewable energy, penal/detention colonies [though I would think summarily executing prisoners, using them for pharmaceutical trials, or organ harvesting, labor, or fertilizer is more practical])

There might be a divided government structure: Peripheral and Centralized branches, the former would have to oversee different regions of the world, that could be divided by continent or region, so perhaps 6 continental divisions or more if by region (N. America, S. America, Australia, Africa [the Eurasian continent is a mess divided into] SE/E Asia, W/S Asia, Siberia, E/W Europe). Each of these continental or regional divisions would have there own militaries. The Central Government where whoever is the dictator ensures their claim to power with a private internal security military loyal only to whomever is the dictator, capable enough to intervene, put down uprisings and rebellions or attempts at coup d'etat from regional governments utilizing their own allotted military resources. Priority on intelligence agencies, secret police/counterrevolution, and sensitivity training.

Socially, if plausible a common language, while I predict that secondary languages would consist of those spoken in the home or among friends, so not entirely wiping away older language. Increase of infrastructure building and possible rises in standards of living, population migrations en masse. I hope there's more religious tolerance, but knowing that even today we have fundamentals and extremist, a lot of people would have to be hunted down, that includes political dissenters, malcontents, zealots, and social undesirables (rapists, murderers, scum of the earth).

Bad.

A government of such a size is probably very, very, VERY bureaucratically incompetent, where it's easier to blame the person up top or down below for shortcomings. There is the inevitability of corruption, cronyism, abuse of power, and infighting among the government branches that have jurisdiction over certain regions, which can lead to collapse. There is also the likelihood of resistance by indigenous and incorrigible groups of people, thus leading to a campaign of eradication, that could be a form of ethnic cleansing and purges (questionable in ethics), the good side being that we become like the Roman Empire and squish anyone who is an inconvenience. There's a lot of bad things that can happen, like getting caught on the wrong side of the governments weapons. I'd like to reiterate that there's going to be problems.

There's a lot more to say. I'd need more time to think on it. I'm just throwing out scenarios.

First of all the world would have to give itself a proper constitution. And of cause this constitution shall not only not touch religion, it should even prohibit any religious believe as part of it. Religion is something private for you - do not go hawking it! Secularity to govern the people is the only choise.

The only question is if (e.g.) a parliamentary democracy is capably of govern the whole planet.
