"Infra-nationalism" maybe: networked and definitely post - Nation State.

"Organisations" are not needed: frameworks within which we may "self-organise" are what is now possible, and lead to the possibility of a State which is not distinct from its citizens.

If you're thinking in the very long term - maybe. It's an optimistic outlook, but certainly possible. However, I think supra-nationalism will arrive first.
