We construct chiral theories with the smallest number n(chi) of Weyl fermions that form an anomaly-free set under various Abelian gauge groups. For the U(1) group, where n n(chi) = 5, we show that the general solution to the anomaly equations is a set of charges given by cubic polynomials in three integer parameters. For the U(1) x U(1) gauge group we find n x = 6, and derive the general solution to the anomaly equations, in terms of 6 parameters. For U(1) x U(1) x U(1) we show that n(chi) = 8, and present some families of solutions. These chiral gauge theories have potential applications to dark matter models, right-handed neutrino interactions, and other extensions of the Standard Model. As an example, we present a simple dark sector with a natural mass hierarchy between three dark matter components. (AU)
