I thought of them as implicit in a relation. E.g. X is a working
employee of Y, not by mere legal encoding but also by their mutual
relation to the means of production controlled by the latter.

Considering the class of all relations first, only a subset of these
directly ensure the immediate needs for the agents to reproduce
themselves over a small time horizon. Hence I was thinking of the
cardinality of the subclasses containing relations of reproduction.

For a given time horizon there should be a class of established sets of
relations of reproduction, of minimum cardinality, which would ensure
the reproduction of the agents.
