Re: "UFP" and "USA"

It's sort of like asking why are Time Lords from Doctor Who so British. The obvious answer is that T.V. shows generally reflect the sensibilities of the country that produces it.

The Federation definitely has some similarities to the United States, but it could also be said to have more in common with the United Nations in general. It's actually interesting that in Trek, the United States is generally mentioned in the past tense as if it no longer exists (as it currently stands) by the 23rd-Century, so I don't how American that can be, IMO...
