Web Comic / Secret Government Robots

Go To

Secret Government Robots is a webcomic on the Book Of PDR. It is the story of the Secret Government, which is staffed almost entirely by robots, and their attempts to control human society from behind the scenes. The Secret Government, SecGov for short, struggles against other Secret Factions, but also has problems from within, especially ineptitude in many forms. It can be found here.

Secret Government Robots provides examples of:


  • Badass Normal: Jason Effing Dante, a regular human assassin who can hold in own in the world of robots, lizard men, cyborgs, and Beekeepers.
  • Beneath the Earth: King Mederex's underground realm, populated by Lizard Men, is an ally of SecGov.
  • Big Brother Is Watching: This is what the Secret Government would like to be.
  • Eldritch Abomination: The first big story dealt with one of these.
  • Evil Chancellor: Mederex's Vizier is specifically identified as evil.
  • Humanoid Abomination: Well, Robotic Abomination anyway. Zeke Purple killed an extradimensional being of great power, and now has its powers for himself.
  • Our Ghosts Are Different: Ghosts can stick around or move on, apparently of their own choosing, but only rarely can they affect the real world. The robots are indoctrinated to hate ghosts.
  • Pretext for War: When one Beekeeper attacked the Secret Government while SecGov was having some rare military successes, it was decided that a war against all of the Beekeepers was justified.

  • Raised by Robots: Cory, the son of the Secret President.
  • Robot Names: All the robots here seem to have people names, favoring old and obscure ones. Also there's multiple Stanislavs.
  • Robot Republic: In spite of being made up of robots, the Secret Government is not one of these, but it is a human-made secret government that used robots to fill positions.
  • Skeleton Government: There a city built to be the head of the Secret Government, but it is almost a ghost town with about 300 robots running everything.
  • Super-Powered Robot Meter Maids: Apparently all the robots have at least one power, even if they work in positions that don't require them.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: The head of the Defense Department has killed SecGov personel just to maintain Secret Government's war against the Beekeepers, which is well intentioned from their point of view.
