* The Earth Federation (later Pangalactic Federation) in ''StarOcean''; since SO is significantly based on ''Franchise/StarTrek'', this is quite similar to the UFP above. Can also be a subtle subversion as well, considering some of the fluff that is provided in the background data that can be unlocked in Star Ocean III.
* The Galaxy Federation in ''{{Xenosaga}}''.

* In the ''SouthPark'' episode "Pinewood Derby," events resulting from Randy Marsh [[ItMakesSenseInContext accidentally discovering light speed space travel after cheating at a pinewood derby race with his son]] later leads to the Earth governments stealing a space pirate's stolen [[FictionalCurrency Galactic Currency]] to selfishly use it to rebuild the world economy results in [[spoiler: Earth being banned from joining a galactic community of planets and thereby forcibly locked away from the rest of the universe.]] Randy's only reaction to all this at the end is a very lax [[{{Understatement}} "Well that sucks."]]

* The [[AmericanFederalism United States of America]]. Some of the states that make up the United States themselves could be considered such, although most are some form of unitary state (and some a lot more unitary than others). The degree of autonomy the states get is especially interesting to many foreigners.

* The People's Republic of Haven in ''Literature/HonorHarrington'' is a very nasty and brutal deconstruction of this trope. Haven starts out as a simple Republic that is referred to as an 'Interstellar Athens' and lived in a perpetual golden age. Then the Havenite government decided to [[WriterOnBoard jack up the welfare programs]], which in turn [[{{Anvilicious}} causes the economy to collapse]]. Instead of cutting the welfare programs, the Republic instead decides to turn conquistador, [[PlanetLooters conquering and looting]] other planets to put money in their treasury. Fast forward a hundred or so years later, Haven rules a vast interstellar empire of over two hundred star systems, and its citizens are divided into the second-class "Dolists" ruled by the first-class "Legislaturalist" hereditary political families. Then, a revolution kicks off, trying to fix the system. Unfortunately the revolution is [[DaysOfFuturePast modeled after the French Revolution]], complete with a leader ''[[StevenUlyssesPerhero named Rob S. Pierre]]''. Saying that it didn't end well would be a kind of an understatement. Of course, now that [[spoiler:the Havenite version of the Thermidorian Reaction has occurred (Thomas Theisman and Eloise Pritchart)]], and with [[spoiler:their version of Napoleon removed ahead of schedule ([[FanNickname Citizen Admiral Clusterbomb]], AKA Esther [=McQueen=])]], things seem to be [[spoiler:on track for the restored Republic of Haven]]. Aside from [[spoiler:the whole resumption of war with [[TheKingdom Manticore]]]], of course-until [[spoiler:Victor Cachat and Anton Zilwicki]] turn up in Nouveau Paris with proof positive that [[spoiler:Manticore and Haven had been manipulated into war with each other]] by an [[spoiler:outside third party with plans for galactic domination]]. This severely annoys [[spoiler:President Pritchart]], who [[spoiler:turns up in the Manticore System at midnight]], sits down with [[spoiler:Queen Elizabeth III]], and ends up not only [[spoiler:putting a permanent end to the war]], but [[spoiler:sealing a military ''alliance'' with Manticore]]. The bad guys are ''screwed'' after that, and the Republic of Haven is once and for all firmly on the side of the light.

** The Federation grants all members the right of secession; the Maquis plotline involves Federation colonists in the Demilitarized Zone between Federation and Cardassian space, many of whom had their planets change hands as part of a peace treaty. These colonists included a group of descendants of American Indians originally encountered in the Original Series, who were in the process of being physically removed from the surrendered planets by the Federation in one episode. Military intervention was immediately canceled, however, when said group renounced their Federation citizenship, and agreed to live peacefully alongside Cardassian colonists. It didn't end well in the [[Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine sequel series]].

Added DiffLines:

* The League of Planets from ''WesternAnimation/AdventuresOfTheGalaxyRangers'' is this, but unlike many examples, this one isn't headquartered on Earth, but rather on the planet Kerwin, who, as mentioned in the OpeningNarration, sends "two peaceful ambassadors" to Earth seeking their help. Earth then becomes a member after Waldo, one of the ambassadors, gives Earth the plans for its first [[FasterThanLightTravel hyperdrive]].
