You are right, one can do it simpler, in a single chip:

Take a uC (STM32F030 comes to mind), use its PLL, VCO and clock output
to do the heavy lifting. No external components (beside a few capacitors)
required.

As the CPU itself and all the peripherals are not used, one can do
other shenanigans with them, like playing the imperial march on
a floppy drive.
