If Earth became one nation, where should the capital be?


I can think of a few possibilities for the capital of this hypothetical Earth nation:

Africa: It is the birthplace of humanity - the "dominant" species on Earth. Maybe one of the big cities there such as Mombasa and Nairobi would be a good place for the capital.

Middle East: Jerusalem is the holy city for the Abrahamic Religions - two of which make up the majority of humanity. Baghdad is a major city in the "cradle of civilization": Mesopotamia.

Europe: The region where democratic ideas first originated. Some of the big cities there could be good for a capital such as London or Paris.

North America: New York is currently the city where United Nations headquarters is at.

Others: Maybe another big city such as Tokyo, Rio De Janiero, or Sydney?

In my science fiction story I'm working on, I picked Mombasa as the capital of the "United Earth" nation.

It'll be London. The English never stopped ruling the world. They just stepped into the shadows.

I like the idea of sending politicians to the moon, especially during an election.
