There have been similar books published for Star Wars over the past couple years (The Jedi Path and The Book of the Sith), framed as in-universe texts with paraphernalia. They were later released sans accoutrements, and eventually in paperback, I think.
There were similar books published for Star Trek
in the 90s -- Federation Passport
, framed as an actual passport issued to UFP citizens, comes to mind.
I don't really expect it to, but I do hope that Federation: The First 150 Years
is consistent with what the novels have established about how the Federation functions, particularly TNG: A Time for War, A Time for Peace
and Articles of the Federation
