The United Federation of Planets (abbreviated as UFP and commonly referred to as The Federation) was an interstellar federal republic, composed of planetary governments that agreed to exist semi-autonomously under a single central government based on the principles of universal liberty, rights, and equality, and to share their knowledge and resources in peaceful cooperation and space exploration.
The United Federation of Planets is a confederation of species, mostly humanoid, in the alpha and beta quadrants. The peoples of the Federation are diverse and numerous. The most important institution of the Federation, not in respect of power but of interest, is the Federation Starfleet, a scientific, diplomatic and defensive organization set to explore new worlds and new civilisations; to boldly go where no one has gone before.
The Federation uses a non-monetary economic system of "credits" to govern trade. Interstellar trade is largely free and unregulated, apart from certain contraband things such as slaves, drugs, and weapons of mass destruction. Because of its freedom and diversity, the Federation is wealthy and prosperous.
Within the interstellar borders of the Federation there are many non-member worlds. Most of these are less-developed worlds, declared off-limits by the tenants of the Prime Directive. These planets are being left to develop as they will under the protection of a Federation whose existence they are unaware of. When a world has reached the appropriate phase of cultural development, it is contacted and strongly encouraged to join the Federation. Other non-member worlds are neutral or are allied to the Federation. An example of the latter is Kaferia, a highly advanced non-Federation world located well within Federation space, which nevertheless has maintained strong ties with the Federation for centuries.
There is no one Federation culture. Some races, such as the Vulcans, have a unified society, religion, and cultural base. Humans, however, are unified as a people, but still hold different cultural values. There are nearly 150 member-planets in the Federation, creating a mosaic of cultures and traditions, bound together by their common interests: peace, order, liberty, and the pursuit of knowledge.
