The Federation clearly works, so I don't see why the Alliance couldn't.
If DS9 proved anything, it's that the Federation only works through economic stability and a shadow organization that thinks itself to be above the law. You even try to take away either of those things, take away the veil of utopia, and it all comes crumbling down.

The Alliance had The Operative, the Federation had Section 31. The latter is no do-gooder society by any means.
