The 3 Words of Chimes is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Queen Josephine with an iron fist, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 7.862 billion Chimesians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, well-organized government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Law & Order, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 92.0%.

The very strong Chimesian economy, worth 609 trillion winds a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Tourism, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 77,512 winds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.

The government is funding experimental battery technology while the power grid continues to crumble, for the sake of 'public interest' news programs tell viewers how to home-make Sarin gas bombs, the nation's taxpayers pay for foreign government's extravagances, and extraordinary rendition is nothing out of the ordinary. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Chimes's national animal is the chime, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is a major religion.

Chimes is ranked 38,725th in the world and 7th in Lemuria for Most Developed, scoring 62.19 on the Human Development Index.
