What I mean by monocultural is that all people in the world would have the same culture. If you go to the other side of the world then you won't experience any culture shock. No distinct traditions or distinct art styles. People don't even speak a different language. Anything you find in your home country will be found in countries far away and anything in theirs could easily be found at home. There would be no real way to be able to tell which country you're in unless you read a sign telling you. At the same time, there is no racism. Nobody will discriminate for any reason other than their skills. Free movement is allowed and has no negative repercussions.

What I mean by a localised world is one that has very distinct cultures in every country. Every country you visit you will experience a culture shock in. All of them have distinct traditions, their own art styles and everybody will dress in their country's unique dress. Every country would speak and write in a completely different language with dialects between cities even being hard to understand. There would be no common drinks or foods between nations. Architecture would be unique in every country you visit - to the point where you can easily tell exactly which country you're in by just looking around. When you go to another country you will be known as the foreigner - no matter how long you live there for. Each country would have tight immigration control as well so you may be asked to leave at any time.

So a terrible fantasy world, or the real world. Hmm. I wonder.

Well, I think the real world is somewhere inbetween right now. I mean, almost all countries in the world drink coca cola the most. No countries in the world are without a McDonalds in them.

To be honest, I was thinking of it more like the world in Kino's journey than the real world. I think I've just explained it badly.

I think that both have good things, but is really cool when you can learn about different cultures. Learning languages is something that i really love and i've met people from different parts of the world and they're amazing! But it would be great a world with no racism.

I don't see any appeal in a cookie cutter world.

I like a localized world but the only downside is having to learn the languages. I want to understand subtitles when I watch an anime and learning the language is frustrating as hell.

I'd be fine with a monocultural world in theory but if current trends are anything to go by it'd be a boring vanilla white world. White or rather Caucasian culture is already quite dominant and I find very little in it appealing to me.

So I am going to have to say a localised one.
