23rd Oct: It's time for the Second TV Tropes Halloween Avatar Contest! Details here.
We have met the Government Conspiracy, and it is us! The main characters are The Government (or at least part of it) - in The White House, Whitehall, the Governor's mansion, a Covert Group, or bureaucrats elsewhere. Variations range from Sitcom to Prime Time Soap with political trappings to topical Ripped from the Headlines drama. A Law Procedural with government attorneys as the main protagonists is a subgenre. See Spy Drama for espionage themed stuff. See also Police Procedural and Cop Show for law enforcement portrayals.
