But we are a very large nation, and thus the federal/state division plays an important part in keeping us together, I think. If we were more monolithic I think we might have broken up already. Federal rule from the top down doesn't work out too well for large entities - either they break up or end up as empires with a dictator at the top.

As it stands, people with different core values and beliefs in different regions retain some sovereignty because of states' rights, and this is very important if you want the populace to stay content.
