Recently British government (by Office  of National Statistics: ONS) just published their version of R manual for analysis of the government survey. The links to PDF and MS word versions of the manual including the R syntax are as below.

For the US governemnt, there is an emerging awareness and recognition of the power of R in their Big Data Initiative. David Smith (Revolution Analytics) has summarised the application of R in the US governemnt in his post here.
