What is the literal translation of DIvI'? Or does it literally translate into the Klingon word for a federal type government?

It literally means "federation", so I guess you could define it as, "a government, organization, or group within which smaller divisions have some degree of internal autonomy.". In Star Trek, the word Federation is also often used as shorthand for the United Federation of Planets. In Klingon this would be yuQjIjDIvI', which similarly, is often shortened to just DIvI'.
