I think it is possible to achieve
Not necessarily will, but I believe it is possible.
Corporations take over spiel: Non-state actors are becoming more and more powerful, initially as pawns of governments but now running parallel to them. Some of the largest corporations, the Catholic Church and even some small corporations are more influential then many countries. With the spread of democracy, corrupt democracy, modernity and materialism, I suspect many non-state organizations will become even more powerful. As the un(der)-developed world moves up, exploitation will become difficult, so they will go back to methods common in the developed world - lobbying politicians and operating in existing legal frameworks. In those situation, why lobby and support politicians in 10 different countries and run the risk of the eleventh country might cause you problems when you can lobby and support one politician at a super national level and through him end descent?
but would be morally wrong
The larger the government, the more room there is for corruption and fiefdom creation at the cost of society as a whole. Also, if everyone is in the same box, then I worry about a conservative inward looking society springing up, as a unified planet would mean no outside force to remove bad rulers/societies. Some day we might have societies planet wide that are capable of having a single world government that isn't oppressive or excessively corrupt, but I don't see that happening in the next 200 years.
