I have an idea that'd make America the most unique country on the planet: Make it a mini-Earth.
We'd bring loads of people from around the globe into distinct, separated states that'd replicate mini countries.
Multiculturalism exists, but my plan would be a superior form of it - It'd make you feel like you're stepping into different countries...States that'd replicate Mexico,Morocco,Japan, Korea, Germany,Italy,Russia,Ireland,France,Norway. I believe the demographics will generally stay in their own states, too. Look at California, a state that doesn't have a healthy economy and has high unemployment, you’ll see how the Hispanic % of the state is still increasing, not decreasing.
In regards to staying loyal to America, look at Hawaii. Hawaii has its own unique culture to it, yet the state is still as American as any other. In regards to the new demographics retaining the state's prior culture, if you again look at Hawaii, you’ll see that the Whites have assimilated nicely into it. Look at Texas, and you'll notice the majority Mexican-Americans are as proud to be Texans as any other demographic
Larger states would fit a variety of demographics in them, by being split into different counties and such. California could be a prime candidate for that.
There’s a variety of countries that have something similar to that California example, and they function fine, some being Luxembourg, Switzerland, etc.
Unlike those countries, everybody in California - along with the rest of the nation - would still learn English in school.
There'd be no legal segregation, no forcible removal etc, so people can still live wherever they want to, but once the plan in mostly finalized, I believe they'll mostly stay in their own states.
There'll be a variety of hurdles, like how to give people incentive to move from one state to another, how to move people from countries around the world to here, making sure the immigrants have a good, worthwhile background, among other issues.
