United Federation of Planets logo

In 2373, the United Federation of Planets consisted of at least 150 member planets, spread over 8,000 light years. (Star Trek: First Contact)

In TOS: "Journey to Babel", set in 2268, the ambassadors of Federation planets attended the Babel Conference, at that time there were 32 ambassadors, suggesting there were at least 32 planets in the Federation at that time.
Presumably the admission policy of the Federation regards governments and/or planets, and not whole species. In practice, a planet had to be unified under one joint government until it can apply for Federation-membership. However, there were potential exceptions, such as the Kes.
According to Star Trek: Star Charts, United Federation of Planets IV, in 2378, there were 183 members and 7,128 affiliates. The area of the Federation was 8,000 cubic light years. At the last census, in 2370, there were 985 billion individuals living in the Federation.

Colonies

See Federation colonies.

The exact status of Federation colonies has never been clearly established. While due to the large amount of colonies it seems unlikely that they have full member status, it would be plausible to assume that they enjoy a status not unlike to that of Federation protectorates.
