The Technocracy movement was a weird movement which flourished briefly during the Great Depression, advocating the merger of all of North and Central America into one nation, to be ruled by scientists and engineers replacing politicians. The dollar was to be replaced by the erg, the centimeter-gram-second (CGS) unit of energy. The movement's fondness for matching red and grey uniforms and militaristic fleets of grey vehicles brought it under great suspicion given what was going on in Europe, and interest in the movement soon collapsed.
The movement still exists and has a small presence on the Internet.
