Before something can be annexed, it must first be a separate entity. Since the
Federation was the universal government up until Zeon declared independence, it
couldn't annex any "lesser" powers, because there weren't any.

Of course, Zeon annexed a good deal of Federation territory, as did Axis/Neo
Zeon nearly a decade later.

Many of the Lunar colonies welcomed "liberation" from the Federation by Zeon,
but some of those also welcomed "liberation" from Zeon by the Federation a few
months later. Other Lunar colonies felt that they'd been annexed by both sides.

The closest thing to the annexation of the Philippines by the United States
might be the reintegration of the Zeon Republic back into the Federation in UC
