"UFP" and "USA"

The similarity between the names "the United Federation of Planets" and "the United States of America" has only recently occurred to me. Was the similarity deliberate? It makes allegory a bit more... obvious, I suppose.

And I suppose this also relates to how Americanised the whole of Earth was. Something that is often understated as American viewers necessarily can't really have an objective view of it.

Opinions?
