The Federation is governed by a President and the Federation Council, both of which have offices on [[Earth]].  The means by which Federation officials attain their positions has never been clearly described.  Evidence suggests that the Council consists of ambassadors appointed by the planetary governments of their homeworlds.  The President is elected by the council by putting his name forward for consideration. <ref>[[DS9]] "Home Front"</ref>

The Federation has at least one secret intelligence organization called [[Section 31]]<ref>[[DS9]] "Inquisition"</ref>.  It is not clear whether Section 31 is entirely an external intelligence and "black-ops" agency or it also functions as an internal intelligence and secret police service.

It was once described by the character [[Sloan]] as being "another branch of Starfleet Security".<ref>[[DS9]] "Inquisition"</ref>  Sloan has also made the claim that Section 31 was part of the original [[Starfleet]] Charter (note: as opposed to the Federation) and that it was an "autonamous department" that did not "submit reports or ask for approval for specific operations".<ref>[[DS9]] "Inquisition"</ref>
