The 君が置いてったものばっかが of Chimes is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Queen Ellorea with an even hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, lack of airports, and compulsory vegetarianism. The compassionate population of 12.82 billion Chimesians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

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 97.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Chimesian economy, worth a remarkable 1,632 trillion winds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry. Average income is an impressive 127,367 winds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Police officers that upset their bosses get assigned to 24 hour stakeouts of bike sheds, rebuilding efforts for a recently destroyed cathedral aren't expected to be completed for another century, convicted crypto-miners are sent to the salt mines, and leather-clad individuals can be seen walking their slaves in public parks. 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 5,039th in the world and 135th in the Rejected Realms for Most Beautiful Environments, with 2,236.29 pounds of wildlife per square mile.
