Militainment



Militainment is a portmanteau that consists of 'Military' and 'entertainment'. It is defined as either:

* a form of entertainment that features and celebrates the military
* a form of entertainment controlled by the military

The U.S. military in particular excels in the authorship of militainment, although the Russian military also has plans to produce their own TV channel.

The game America's Army is a compelling example of militainment because the game fits both definitions of militainment: it features and celebrates the U.S. Army, and is controlled by the U.S. Army as well. In contrast to America's Army, Kuma\War is a current training and entertainment platform for the U.S. Department of Defense as well as being distributed for free over the web by Kuma Reality Games.Permission is granted to copy, distribute and/or modify this document under the terms of the GNU Free Documentation License, Version 1.2 or any later version published by the Free Software Foundation; with no Invariant Sections, with no Front-Cover Texts, and with no Back-Cover Texts.
