Origins coming with Stellaris 2.6 and Federations DLC
You might be familiar with the concept of starting civics for special cases and governments – they will not leave you throughout the game, like syncretic evolution. These, and a lot of other civics, have been transformed to starting civics: Anyone with any government will be able to take them.
And of course there will also be new ones, based on the DLCs your own, and a handful of free ones that will come with the base version of the game.

Big Federation Rework & the Galactic Community in Stellaris Federations DLC and the Stellaris 2.6 Patch
The whole system around Federations will be reworked. There will not only be the possibility of Federations; also, around the galaxy, the so called Galactic Council will be roughly what the UN are in Civilization: Creating the laws of the galaxy; binding for all who stay in the Galactic Community (this is voluntary – you can leave it).
Some types of empires won’t be in the Galactic Community, or unable to join Federations.
There will be different types of Federations, e.g. Research-, Trade- or War-based.
