I'm guessing the governments of the Federation Planets are all independent (in other words, Vulcan has a Vulcan government, and Earth has an Earth government, etc.) So while we've seen the "Federation President" in movies, who's running earth?
A global government called United Earth is mentioned several times (even in TOS, I believe - UESPA) and we see some of it's workings in Enterprise, at which point the Federation doesn't exist yet. Below that, I believe there are continental federations, UE members (USA, I think a European Alliance and African Confederation were mentioned).
