We play as Starfleet characters.

The Federation is the generic term for civilians, Starfleet is the military arm.

It would be like going up to a member of the Navy and calling them a civvie.
Starfleet "characters" are from the Federation (and citizenship doesn't matter, they represent the Starfleet, therefore the Federation) as much as the US Navy members are americans. I dont understand ur confusion.
