I'd go with the Progressive Collectivist Technocracy.
It seems like a no-brainer to me. Manage the worlds resources using a computer automated distribution system, ensuring everyone has access to an
abundance of resources. Most of the production and manufacturing would be handled by machines, freeing up humanity to pursue their passions, whether
they be art, science, athletics, etc. No more money, and therefore no more reason to rely primarily on fossil fuels. Free food, energy, housing and
education, extra luxuries for people who excel in their areas of expertise and make a positive impact in their community. Freedom of religion,
provided that your beliefs don't conflict with basic morals; don't murder, treat your neighbors with respect. Freakin' paradise.
The downside? Probably birth licenses to keep the population down. Populations of each zone would have to be managed carefully to ensure the balance
of resources. Lethal weaponry would have to be illegal or tightly controlled. Certain checks and balances would have to be implemented at the highest
levels to ensure that no one puts the system out of balance, though the level of abundance we could achieve might render that moot...why take
resources from others when you have more than enough available? And of course, there are always paranoid people who are terrified at the idea of
anyone or anything having absolute power. You could be living in the nicest conditions in the world and still be worried about some satanic alien
overlord behind the scenes.
The big problem is, to achieve this sort of utopia, the government would have to castrate itself once the automated systems are put in place...nobody
who's in a position of power wants to do that.
The alternative to this, of course, is a horrific world empire which wipes out everyone it doesn't like, reigns supreme for a couple of generations,
then the great grandchildren of the original founders begin another power struggle and fracture the empire into smaller nations, and global
civilization regresses to the point it is at today. In the absolute worst case, we nuke ourselves to the brink of oblivion and start over from the
