    Warlords are a type of government. If I can include types of government, I say global imperial domination – Razie Mah Mar 10 '14 at 4:24

    This is the result that is almost always predicted in Post-Apocolyptic SciFi. Though I am not certian what the point of this question is. I think the question needs to be refined to work well on SE. – SoylentGray Mar 10 '14 at 16:21
