What happens beyond the village?

Considering a population, however large, even many millions of people, we can apply the system of rings to break up and organize it in Villages. Following the same scheme, each Village will send a representative to the center, forming the fourth ring; at this stage we must note a few things:
– the representatives of the fourth ring are less than 1% of the total population because we can assume that the Villages on average exceed the 100 units
– in a group of villages many may not know each other directly, this means that everyone will know the representative of his Village, but could not know that of others; then when electing one representative to be sent to the fifth ring this is unrelated to many, then the connection of knowledge within the group and its representative will be lost. The fourth ring is the last where we’ll certainly find a person of our village, then known to us.
– once the link of direct knowledge is missed, the only numerical limit in the formation of groups is the need to form an assembly of representatives that is easily manageable and functional, that is made up of a number of members not exceeding fifteen, henceforth we fix then, that the groups can vary from seven to fourteen members, but, for ease of calculation and exposure, we’ll assume that they are on average composed of ten units.
At the fourth ring thus groups will gather ten Villages, overcoming the thousand members and then send their representatives to the next. At the fifth ring all the considerations made for the fourth become even more valid: the number of members was reduced to one tenth compared to the fourth and the possibility of meeting strangers is higher. The relationship with the first ring become formal because of the loss of direct knowledge, and from the fifth on the rings lose their family and informal features, so we’ll call them institutional rings.
Although the population of the fifth ring is less than a thousandth of that of the first, if the original population is of many millions of citizens, it will be anyway made up of thousands of people. It will therefore be necessary to repeat the usual procedure by creating a sixth ring, then a seventh, etc. .. This will make smaller and smaller rings to achieve one of less than fifteen people. At first glance it may seem that to achieve this we need a large number of subsequent stages, but we can easily calculate that in order to saturate a system with 11 rings are needed more than 10 billion people, about double the world population. This means that on any nation or group of nations we should apply the concentric system, it will take no more than ten steps. This calculation was done also considering the informal rings, i.e. the first four, which with no doubt don’t involve a cumbersome bureaucracy; if we consider only those institutional, the possible steps are reduced to seven.
Reached the penultimate ring, this will be made of about a hundred members who will be coordinated from the last central ring, it is up to them then the task of translating the contributions from all the structure into laws and concrete policy goals, making the final choices.
