To the families

How the central government shares power with the local governments is embodied in how the mishkan incorporated the tribal identification in the avnei shoham and the lechem hapanim
The tribes bespeak the kinship relationship rather than the civil relationship. 
The land is granted by God not to the nation but to the families. 
The family is the locus of will whereas the individual is the locus of appetite. Families favor stability while individuals favor getting more and more.
