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
, the Governor's mansion, a Covert Group
, or elsewhere. Variations range from Sitcom
to Prime Time Soap
with political trappings to heavy political drama Ripped from the Headlines
. A Law Procedural
with government attorneys as the main protagonists is a subgenre.
Live Action TV
- To a degree, Going Postal, and even more so Making Money.
- When the plot doesn't center on the military action, much of the plot of the Honor Harrington series busies itself with the intricate workings of the various governments involved, and gives the impression that the military commanders have a less stressful job than the politicians do.
