  1. Well, yes. It will collapse, put itself back together, and keep going.

    The United States of America is a nation. Most nations have already clocked 4 digits on the good ‘ol age-o-meter (1000+ years old for those who aren’t good at English slang). England, France, Egypt, China, Japan, I can go on.

    The present United States government is over 200 years old. While that is unlikely to last for centuries beyond the present point without at least some serious change, it will be replaced with something. Too many people identify themselves as American. There is too much shared culture and history for the country to split apart without hope of reunion.

    Many people, for some dumb reason, compare the United States to the Roman Empire. Rome was a continent spanning multi-cultural empire that used military force to hold together the whole thing. The actual Romans were a minority in the empire, and most corners of the empire had no direct loyalty to the central government, or a desire to remain in the same nation together.

    The United States is populated predominately by its citizens, who adhere to its culture and speak its language. What nation-states could it even split off?
