The Kronies

The Kronies website is here.

The parent company Chimera Inc describes themselves as follows:

Chimera Incorporated is a leading multi-disciplinary holding company with offices in Washington D.C., Brussels, Riyadh, and Beijing. (永恆的祝福我們的高級理事會尊敬的朋友們!) Chimera seeks to leverage strategic partnerships with major world governments to capture and control a diverse range of industries, including consumer goods, green energy, defense, telecom, and finance. It’s a model that allows us to seize 100% of the potential upside while eliminating the troublesome risks associated with competition, innovation, and financial default. Since our founding in 1887, Chimera Incorporated has been recognized as a trailblazing pioneer in the fields of regulatory capture and rent-seeking. At Chimera, we believe that it is both our duty and our right to shield consumers and our stakeholders from the chaos of the unconstrained market.

Very clever.
