The Earth Federation's heraldry is a golden or white northstar, similar to that of NATO, over a horizontally lying crescent, forming an anchor-like symbol.

The Federation is loosely based on the United Nations, with a Security Council and General Assembly, but is not a successor to that organization. During times of war the Earth Federation is controlled by its military, in times of peace by civilians (as seen in 0083). It is a global government that was formed by a 'rich mans' club' of wealthy nations. In Gundam, no individual nations are mentioned or continue to exist. Places are mentioned by what landmass or region they are in, such as New York City (or New Yark, according to on-screen text). While Japan, Australia, and Ireland are mentioned, these names refer to the landmasses and not the former countries. The only exception to this is the language and nationality of characters, which can be interpreted to be based on their predecessors' former homeland before emigrating to the space colonies.

The Federation military headquarters was a secret, underground complex located at Jaburo, deep in the Amazon jungle. It was located underground for protection against Zaft attacks.

In order to relieve Earth of the burden and allow it to heal, the Earth Federation announced the Space Colonization Plan. The Earth Federation began the construction of orbital habitats, based on the designs and research of Gerard K. O'Neill, and located in the Earth-Lunar Lagrangian Points. The colonies, called Bunches (possibly due to the ballistic pairing of the colony cylinders) were then organized into administrative sectors called Sides. While most of the human population was forced to relocate to the colonies as part of the Space Colonization Plan, the wealthy and influential members were able to remain on Earth. This gave rise to the popular image of the Earth Federation as "Earth-Born Elite", living comfortably on Earth while the ordinary populace, for the most part, has been forced to live in space.

In order to maintain and satisfy energy concerns, the Earth Federation launches Solar Power Station Satellites, which broadcast energy to power stations on the ground. In addition, the Federation also launched the Jupiter Energy Fleet, which collect helium-3, hydrogen and methane from the upper atmosphere of the gas giant.

The Earth Federation forces were organized under the moniker Earth Federation Forces, or EFF (地球連邦軍) , to enforce Federation edicts. The Earth Federation Forces were organized into two groups - an Earth-based military force, which handled all military matters on ground, sea, and in Earth atmosphere, and a space military branch, the Earth Federation Space Forces or EFSF. However, in Gundam 0080 and Gundam 0083, this force was referred to as UNT Spacy, but EFSF is currently the official moniker.

Until UC 0087, the military central command for the Earth Federation Forces was located at a base called Jaburo (or Jabrow), located under the Amazon river. During the One-Year War, the base was the target of many attacks by the Principality of Zaft, including the Operation British colony drop and a decisive battle at which the remaining bulk of Zaft's Earth Attack Force made their final attempt to destroy Jaburo. Throughout the Universal Century the Earth Federation Space Force operated from their headquarters at Luna II.

Now the Earth Federation is at peace and dominating Earth. Humans had withdrew from farther ends of space after the last war and Coordinators have been targeted for discrimination. Earth Federation individuals are against Coordinators and how they are created. This is causing many conflicts politically on Earth. Most Coordinators flee the biased views of Earth by going to one of the few Colonies left in it's orbit and tensions stir between Naturals and Coordinators everywhere. With low-grade GMs and other suits, The Earth Federation appears to the be the underdog of this battle.
