^ Also, I disagree with the notion that Federation citizens don't seek out wealth being that they already have it via the replicator. That's like saying rich people today don't care about money because they already have it. Oh yeah? Economic status denotes moral status?
I think it's why I don't like the DS9 line that "it's easy to be a saint in paradise." No it isn't. That's the point. That's the difference between being a saint and being some schmo so preoccupied with his own paradisaical lifestyle that he's not hurting anyone else. That is, until faced with a dilemma that requires the choice of hurting someone else or not and really testing his morality. The Federation's accomplishment is that they have sophisticated, decent, vibrant citizens who take pride in setting and working toward such things as their goal. It's an idea still very much ahead of its time, I don't care how far ahead of bell-bottoms and beehive hairdos we've come.
