Why are governments set up with Ministries of Telecommunications, Gas Production, and Machine Building? Why Departments of Transportation, Labor, and Commerce? Why Bureaus of Investigation, Economic Statistics, and Veteran Affairs?

These are such arbitrary ways to slice a pie! How about an Administration for Soft Fuzzy Things? A Minister of Objects Whose Names Begin With "T"? A Sourness Department? An Agency of the Afternoon?
