Or it could be absolutely none of those things. Until we get a West Wing style series specifically about the UFP, I doubt we'll ever know. But we can guess our asses off.
Those open-minded enough to accept the novels would likely enjoy Articles of the Federation by Keith R.A. DeCandido, a West Wing-style novel about a year in the life of the Federation President.

The mechanisms of Federation government are also explored in the novels:
  • A Time to Kill by David Mack
  • A Time to Heal by David Mack
  • A Time for War, A Time for Peace by Keith R.A. DeCandido
  • Articles of the Federation by Keith R.A. DeCandido
  • Destiny: Gods of Night by David Mack
  • Destiny: Mere Mortals by David Mack
  • Destiny: Lost Souls by David Mack
  • A Singular Destiny by Keith R.A. DeCandido
  • TNG: Losing the Peace by William Leisner
  • Typhon Pact: Zero Sum Game by David Mack
  • Typhon Pact: Rough Beasts of Empire by David R. George III
  • Typhon Pact: Paths of Disharmony by Dayton Ward
  • Typhon Pact: Plagues of Night by David R. George III
  • Typhon Pact: Raise the Dawn by David R. George III
  • TNG: Cold Equations: Silent Weapons by David Mack
