If the revolution was a popular one with the planet's general population, that would be a factor. Should the new state fall too far outside the criteria for being a Federation member, the collective membership could decide to expel that world (or collection of worlds) from the Federation.

On the other hand, if they do change to a significant degree, but they remain in close association with enough individual Federation members, say a group of regional trading partners, then they could hang onto their membership.
