Does anyone know where I can see a complete description (including
structures) of the NAC, ESU, etc...

In "Starship Troopers", I believe the franchise one earned from military
service pertained to interstellar government.  The local planatary
governments were not affected.	What happened after the long war when
power to control space (Interstellar Government) was in the hands of
military - arguably like-minded individuals.  Maybe the instellar
would be looked upon as a kind patriarch, certainly right after the war
public opinion is high. 

Such a minority controlled goverment could lead to rebellion,
factionalization of the interstellar leaders (Alexander, 323 B.C.) the
possibilities are endless. Heinlen had a terrible idea, voter
through military service, but the circumstances of such a government
a multitude of Full Thrust campaigns :)

I can see the Border Wars waging.
