Do you mean words for the idea? Or examples? Here in New Zealand we use the phrases Public Holiday, and Statutory Holiday.

US: They may be called State Holidays, Federal Holidays, or Government Holidays (or occasionally "school holidays") They're pretty much: New Year's MLK Day* Presidents Day* Memorial Day Independence Day Labor Day Colombus Day* Veterans Day* Thanksgiving Christmas (The ones with a * means that government offices and schools are closed - but most people still have to go to work).
