Government has a user experience, too.  

Governments around the world increasingly are looking for ways to improve citizen experience through software. Whether it’s in the form of smart, sensor-driven trash pickup in Washington, D.C., or the ‘whole-government API’ that has been developed in Singapore, governments are embracing the opportunity to use software to deliver experiences to the citizens they serve that match modern customer experiences delivered through the private sector.
