Say the UNSC set up a outpost on a world to assist in further deep space

exploration, they picked this world out in a earlier survey so no one 
'owns' it yet. They outpost is set up it's a long term prospect and the 
world is a nice place to be so the workers bring their families along, 
pretty soon you have a community. Living on UN land, under UN law, gee? 
What do you know you? 'UN  citizens' :) Besides haven't you ever heard
immigration? If you're going to live and work there permanently you may
well join in.

As for the sovereignty issue, it's given that the UNSC maintains the
in the core worlds. For this to work I imagine all the nations will have
give up some degree sovereignty within the core. This may actually be a 
contributing factor to the movement of the capitals off Earth (like the
at Albion), in turn this would have also made the UNSC's task of
the peace in the core systems" much easier. Moreover the vast majority
the planets/systems in the core and inner colonies will probably have 
multiple nations inhabiting them, unlike the outer systems which belong
a single nation. Issues of who gets what power and what compromises
are willing to live with will be very different in the two cases.
