The Queen of The Night of Chimes is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Queen Ellorea with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory vegetarianism, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 12.054 billion Chimesians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Chimes Province. The average income tax rate is 97.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Chimesian economy, worth a remarkable 1,531 trillion winds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail. Average income is an impressive 127,069 winds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The standardised national curriculum requires that all-male classes be taught why they have periods, Super Barry Brothers is the most popular video game in the nation, there is a growing belief that consciousness is a simulated illusion within a computer-generated reality, and the government only invests in infrastructure after a natural disaster. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Chimes's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Wicca.

Chimes is ranked 191,811th in the world and 6,248th in the Rejected Realms for Most Conservative, scoring 29.5 on the Bush-Santorum Dawning Terror Index.
