What is wrong with a unicameral legislative body?

There is absolutely no issue with having a unicameral legislature. Many countries do just fine with a unicameral legislature (Sweden, South Korea, Portugal) or have a bicameral legislature where the upper chamber does practically nothing making a de facto unicameral legislature (Spain and United Kingdom).The argument for having a bicameral legislature in a place like the United States is to balance state and national interests, by giving states equal representation in one body and nationally-allocated representation based on population in other body. It also provides for the legislature to self-check. In many countries, the executive is more powerful, serving the purpose of the self-check, or there are no internal divisions that have unique legislative rights, so balancing national and state divisions is unimportant.
