public class Institutional Agent 

When Social Agents are integral wholes formed by multiple agents playing different roles they are further classified as Institutional Agents. An Institutional Agent exemplifies what is named a Functional Complex, i.e., a mereologically complex entity whose parts play different roles with respect to the whole. By instantiating each of these roles defined in the characterization of that Functional Complex Universal, each part contributes in a different way to the integral behaviour of the whole.
