The term “Political Engineering” has appeared more than 100 years ago. Present development goes ahead according to systemic principles, and political systems engineering can be considered as the design, implementation and validation of systems, composed of integrated subsystem representing parts or functions of complex political reality. This course of development should be oriented towards reality of the 21st century, when Earth has been entered the anthropocene epoch, and the humanity the E-civilization era. Present Information Society needs participatory, networked and AI-assisted political structure not composed of elected rulers and electing subjects but rather of hired managers and principally deciding associates. Two hypothetical projects that meet these demands, one related to local referendum and the other to the UN Security Council, are discussed in the article.
