United Earth Government
The specific nature of this government wasn't included in the story of Robotech- it was all about the armed forces, after all.
I have used the examples of the United Nations and the European Union to create a picture of the United Earth Government. It is a currency and trade union.

Earth Council
The Earth Council is the modern continuation of the UN Security Council. The five permanent members still receive their seats, and each other nation is represented by 15 other Councilors from nations selected by the Earth Parliament for 10 year staggered terms. Once the nation is appointed, they may select and change their appointees as their national laws dictate.
The Council has the power of co-decision on all issues, except taxation, which is the exclusive power of the Parliament. The permanent members have been stripped of their veto ability, and when it comes to the Earth Commission, they are limited to vetoing 5 Commissioners in total during Commission formation.

Earth Parliament
The Earth Parliament is a proportionally distributed and elected parliament. The smallest nation receives 6 seats (currently Tuvalu), the largest receives 100 (currently China), and everyone else falls in spectrum between. There have been 3 historical permutations of the method of apportionment.
The current rules for distribution of seats allow as follows: The largest and smallest are assigned their seats. Then each other nation is allotted seats as a percentage of the largests' population. Then six seats are added, unless that number would exceed 100, as 100 is the maximum. No nation has attempted a census since the Rain of Death.
The current distribution is (sample numbers)
China 100
India 100
United States 29
Russia 17
Hispanola 16
United Kingdom 11
Australia 8
Zimbabwe 8
Smaller than Zimbabwe and larger than Tuvalu all get 7 seats.
While the laws require a proportional vote, and most use a system similar to European Union Elections, there is some national variation.
-In China, only 130 candidates stand for election, and 100 of them are selections from the Communist Party and it's affiliates. Hong Kong and Macau are allowed to select 5 candidates (both choose to do so by popular vote primaries), while 20 are open to opposition groups who can collect the largest number of signatures. The voting is completed by single transferable vote using optional party lists, constructed very similarly to the Australian method.
-Australia selects their representatives via Single Transferable Vote. Several other current and former Commonwealth Nations follow the same practice, and others have debated adopting it.
In the case of a empty seat, the national legislature selects a candidate to fill the seat (typically with limitations of party affiliation of the empty seat) in the normal procedure. However in Single Transferable Vote nations, the ballots are re-examined after eliminating retired or deceased candidates from preference, and the 'next winner' is determined.
They have the power of legislative initiative, but after electing a Commission President and approving his Commissioners, they typically follow it's advice and act along party lines.

Earth Commission
The Earth Commission is a cabinet government of 30 Commissioners chosen by a Commission President from the members of parliament. No more than one Commissioner may be from the same nation, and it has been a unwritten policy to reserve a space each for Russia, China, France, the United Kingdom, and the United States. The majority grouping of parties selects these from among its members, and can typically push most through the parliament. The Commission President functions as the chief executive.
Most Commissioners have multiple portfolios, and a number of them are created or eliminated with each new Commission President. Specific to the UEDF, the portfolios are required by law to be split into many multiple portfolios. Each continent is under the control of a different commissioner, and an 8th commissioner is responsible for the forces off Earth (UEDF Spacy). However the promotion and placement of personnel is an internal matter to the UEDF, overseen by the Earth Council instead of the commissioners.

North America
Population: 672,000,000
Human: 427,000,000 (estimated)
Zentraedi: 125,000,000
Extra-dimensional Beings: 120,000,000
-Elves: 2,000,000
-Dwarves: 1,500,000
-Minotaur: 1,250,000

-Deevils: 1,000,000
-Day Demons- 750,000
-Night Demons- 750,000
-Worldslayer Demons- 500,000




National Summaries
United States- losing it's two largest population centers was a devastating blow, but the further loss of the rest of New York State, as well as Pennsylvania to the formation of the Republic of York was nearly crippling. Still, the plan for the US government is to treat the non-hostile visitors as refugees. The largest center has formed around the national capital.
Mexico- The loss of the national capital has caused the complete collapse of the national government. UEDF Peacekeepers and UEG emergency personnel are trying their best to rebuild the country from the ground up.
Canada- Initially safe from the Rain of Death, Canada has faced hardships from Dimensional Invaders, particularly centered on Calgary, where all manner of demons spew forth under the guns of UEDF personnel.
Panama- The Canal Zone is host to the largest UEDF Marine base on the continent. Most flyovers of Mexico City originate here.
Hispanola- a federal merger of the Dominican Republic and Haiti into a loose federal confederation that was finalized in 2011 has served the inhabitants of this island well. It was chosen for experimental naval base and has grown to support the world's largest UEDF blue water fleet.
Cuba- Cuba received a large number of Zentraedi from a single Landing ship, and has had social integration problems since the Rain of Death. Thus far the UEDF is not involved.

Washington DC

Grand Cannon, Alaska

Republic of York
Comprising the former US states of New York and Pennsylvania, this separatist nation refuses to render any aid to any non-human either Zentraedi or Dimensional in origin.

Wastelands

Los Angeles
Most of Southern California has been engulfed in battles from the Minion War, as Deevil and Demon fight for control of a series of powerful nexuses.

New York City
The rifts of the NYC ruins seem to have preferentially opened to either the Palladium World, or a series of close parallels. As such, the Northeastern United States is home to an increasing amount of flora and fauna from the Palladium World.

Mexico City
Unknown to the UEG, among the shattered ruins of Mexico City, several Master Vampires jockey for position and have been breeding prodigiously, trying to open the way for their respective intelligences.
