You are quite right, for now it is not possible to manage the Rudder 
server with itself. It is not a technical limit, but it was a behaviour 
choice we did a long time ago, when Rudder wasn't looking as what it is 

We have recently considered the possibility to add Rudder 
self-management feature, but for now, we didn't set a timeline for it.
A ticket opens by a member of the community for that very feature could 
rise its priority a lot ;)

We could think about it, please open a ticket to describe that use case. 
We are also thinking about building some VM images (a server and one or 
two node) to allows to test Rudder in a simple way.
And finally, we are also thinking about adding a "demo data" set of 
files that could be imported into a server, to preconfigure some 
groups/policy instances/configuration rules. But in that case, nodes are 
still needed to fully test Rudder.

Hope it helps,
