I'll say the Ireland and UK.

...Or can it ever implode? every nation has a connection there. a war in America, is a world war surely.
In what way? Irish neutrality is actually based on the bottom of not interfering with other nations internal conflicts

Oh not racial lines I think. Maybe along current political lines. There is definitely racism, but there are a lot of people who are not racist and would have no problem sharing a country with different races. And it appears to pretty much divide along the political lines.

Not that fanciful. There are already European humanitarian organisations that have been providing food aid to impoverished Americans for several years, and only last week Medécins sans Frontières sent a delegation to assist with providing on-the-ground health care services as the country is now ranked as one of the "hottest" of disease hot-zones and unable to manage its own problems.

I doubt there'd be too much need for any kind of peace-keeping force, though. If there's any kind of implosion, the first reaction locally will be for the more rational states to secede and either set themselves up as independent republics (e.g. Hawaii, California) or enter into a new, smaller union (e.g. the North-Eastern states).

The countries who go to help would essentially be invading forces who would want to take control (or at least influence) in the way the Russians and allies did in Europe at the end of ww2.

So Ireland would be well out of it.
