Embassies and consulates are definitely government facilities/offices. 
Under the legal doctrine of extraterritoriality, the embassy or
consulate is considered to be located in the sending country for
purposes of legal jurisdiction.  Extraterritoriality is virtually
unlimited in the case of an embassy; it is more limited in the case of a
consulate but still exists.  Thus office=government,
government=[diplomatic, consular}, diplomatic=[embassy, high_commission,
nunciature, legation, interests_section, branch_embassy, liaison_office]
might be what we are looking for.
