Yeah, but that still sounds like xenophile-egalitarian to me. What of the xenophile-authoritarian?
I suppose you could have xenophile-authoritarian-militarists, who want to raid alien empires to capture exotic slaves to work in the aristocrats mansions. They just wouldn't feel particularly queasy about poor people of their own species being enslaved by other xenophile-authoritarian empires, because what are you a xenophobe it's just poor people what do we care if they go away to live on the tentacle demon farm.

Well, it looks like doing the Federation thing will at least be easy if you wanna do it: Dev Diary 160

Most of those seem pretty generic, but a few seem interesting.

I really wish they'd given more details on how some of the starts work.  Like federation starts: do you start with federation members that are the same species as you?  Are they aliens?  What ethics do they have?

The ideas are pretty cool though, and I'm at least glad that life-seeded no longer eats up a civic slot.

The pictures kinda implied different aliens. No idea about the ethics, though I assume they can't be *too* far off from you.

Can you have a federation with only one member? Because it might actually start you off like that and expect you to find friends yourself. It's still an advantage, mechanically, despite being tremendously underwhelming thematically.

Based on the image provided, I'm guessing you basically have a colony or two of your species that are separate entities, already federated with you.

You can see that the Alpha Centauri and Bernard's Star colonies both have different flags, implying that they are sovereign nations. I think the concept is that your species has already gotten a foothold in the galaxy, possibly through generation ships before the invention of the hyperdrive, and that your colonies are now independent but friendly to the home system.

While obviously not the intended purpose of the origin, I wonder if backstabbing your two friends and annexing them is going to be a good strategy. It seems like a great way to get some free pops.

By the time you're done punching through their starport and recruiting enough soldiers to overwhelm their homeworld in a timely fashion, I'm not sure how free they'd feel.

That does make me wonder how starbase distance penalties are going to work with fed members starting so close. Paying extra to leapfrog over each other sounds like it'd get real old real quick.

Roleplaying, perhaps. You do get a tradition unlock and a federation from the start as well as 2 established vassals paying you taxes, which is nice.
