Also recently in the news with both a UK and US spin is
The http://www.opensourceacademy.gov.uk/solutions/casestudies Open Source
Academy lists a number of UK and EU sites. The material is pre-2006, so
the list is probably much longer.
http://www.openforumeurope.org/ Open Forum Europe is another advocate of
open source in government. Their
2008 report (pdf), though short, makes for interesting reading.
Finally, http://delicious.com/tag/plone-site+government returns 32 Plone
sites worldwide that appear to be used in government.
