Themeforest is in need of Wordpress templates targeted at Local Government. All templates should be based on wordpress and have responsive design. See below for some good examples of Local Government Websites:

You definitely should continue building your theme. There is a huge market for wordpress and drupal themes for State and Local Governments. I would be happy to provide you with feedback once you get close to completing it.

I would like to see Envato make Government its own category and not place it under corporate.

Example: - Government —Local Government (e.g. City, County) —State Government (e.g. State Portals, State Agencies, etc.)

Out of interest, what in any of those sites can’t be created with any wordpress theme and a bit of imagination?

They could, however it would be beneficial to have themes created for that specific purpose. No different then have Marketing, Portfolio or Business Themes. Government has specific needs as well. Also, you are more likely to sell a theme if it is specifically created for your target audience.

The sales figures say otherwise but look – A wordpress theme can be anything you want it to be. It’s interesting that someone would restrict their search to 0.001% of the themes on here just because a theme is called ‘bathroom fitting company theme’ or ‘optician theme’.

Actually this is what most buyers do on ThemeForest I think :)
