The Red Tape War - George Alec Effinger, Mike Resnick, Jack L. Chalker
Millard Fillmore Pierce appears in five different guises, each a member of a different species from a different parallel universe; all of them speak English and most of them intend to take over the human Pierce's galaxy. That none succeeds is largely due to red tape: so many forms must be filled out in order even to fire a shot that battleships carry hundreds of bureaucrats to support each soldier.
