Neil tyson and some others have mentioned a system "rationalia". How would the social, economic, administrative systems look like in that system ?

Can you cite something that we can view or read?

There have been cases in history where people have pondered and attempted (what they considered) purely rational systems for government and social structure.

From what I remember, human impulses and emotions want to override these things really quickly.

One example is what is discussed in Plato's Republic: It is suggested that children should be raised outside of their family units and have very little contact with the parents. Now, while some ancient cultures might have been accepting of this, our ideas of family and togetherness wouldn't allow for this. But the logic behind it was quite convincing.

I have the feeling that the system of 'Rationalia' would look ... well ... rational.
