There is more information available on this subject at Confederation on the English Wikipedia.

A confederation is an alliance, union, or league.[1]

The European Union on the human homeworld of Earth is a democratic confederation.[2] The Unified Earth Government (UEG) was supposed to be a confederation of independently governed planets, however the interference of the United Nations Space Command (UNSC) made many Outer Colonies and some Inner Colonies doubt this.[3]

The Covenant were also a confederation of multiple species.[4]
