Answer:
Salvador Allende(1) and Stafford Beer (2) built this computerized governance mechanism called Cybersyn (3) to “run” all of Chile. The whole thing eventually fell apart, but nevertheless one of the more quirky and interesting overlaps between computing and politics.

Points assigned by AutoRaja. Review by lazy humans pending.

    The connect is Cybersyn.
    During the administration of Salvador Allende(in pic 1) in Chile, in the early 1970s, Anthony Stafford Beer(in pic 2) was closely involved with a visionary project, Cybersyn, to apply his cybernetic theories in government. The project’s ultimate goal was to create a network of computers and communications equipment that would support the management of the state-run sector of Chile’s economy; at its core would be an operations room(in pic 3).
