And...I think the UFP would only be the "ideal" society it claims to be if it were a limited-government, free-market capitalist society.
Basically you mean the Ferengi alliance then, yeah?
Arguably they were more "big government" than the Federation. The Ferengi Commerce Authority seemed ridiculously powerful.
The Ferengi, I believe, were a example of a semi-anarchy. The Authority was more of a multi-national corporation than a government. And the Grand Nagus like Al Capone or the head of the five families in New York City.
