* In ''VideoGame/{{Scrapland}}'', on the planet's capital city of Chimera, every robot has a specific function. In fact, D-Tritus is refused entry into Chimera until he's assigned a job.

Compare: GangOfHats. Contrast: MulticulturalAlienPlanet. See also RubberForeheadAliens, IntelligentGerbil, ScaryDogmaticAliens. May result because ApathyKilledTheCat. If the planet's hat is being evil, it's an example of AlwaysChaoticEvil. SeriousBusiness is what happens when the show's setting gets a hat. This trope in itself is a good example of SciFiWritersHaveNoSenseOfScale. See SingleBiomePlanet when the planet is unnaturally uniform physically. OneProductPlanet is a subtrope, but focuses on economics rather than culture.

* Played With to Hell and back in ''VideoGame/{{Stellaris}}''. All species have ''Traits'', biological instincts which are ingrained into them to make them, say, better sociologists, more inclined to disagree with each other, or [[BreadEggsMilkSquick happier when they have access to enslaved subjects]], and ''Ethos'' which are ideological in nature and determine which government the species has; they may, for instance, make a species more individualistic or more collectivist, more spiritual or more materialistic, or more warlike or peaceful. Traits can only be changed to a very limited degree via genetic manipulation, while ethos changes very often depending on factors such as how far the colony's population is from the homeworld or how much free thought is encouraged or suppressed by government policy. Populations with different ethos may even form divergent factions which may push for independence from your empire, peacefully [[TheWarOfEarthlyAggression or not]].

* ''Franchise/StarWarsLegends'' has even given us a Hutt ''Chancellor of the Republic'' (Blotus), who is noted to have been a fair, honest, popular leader.

Added DiffLines:

* All Muuns are members of the InterGalactic Banking Clan, a shady bank which financed both sides of the Clone Wars along with numurous crime syndicates. The Sith Lord Darth Plagueis is easily the most famous Muun and he was also a high ranking Banking Clan member.

** Other races also seem to be very monocultural or extremely specialized; the Diagnosans are a species of medics, and of course the Peacekeepers are a species of soldiers. The Peacekeepers later turn out to be just one culture amongst many; a breakaway cluster of planets are a regional power, and many unaffiliated worlds of the same race excist.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/WinxClub'' has several, although not as many as one would think, partially due to the lack of information about most of the Winx's planets of origin.
** Musa's planet Melody's only shown feature is whales who sing, and the only other people from her planet are her parents (who played instruments and sang) and Princess Galatea, who appears to be the fairy of classical music.
** Tecna's planet, Zenith (or Titanium in the comics) is also full of people very similar to her: logical and rational and extremely technologically advanced.
** All that appears to be of Linphea, Flora's planet, is forests, magical trees, and giant ladybugs that give rides. The only other inhabitants shown are Miele, Flora's little sister, and Princess Krystal, who also has healing, nature-type powers.
** Averted by Eraklyon, Dominio, and Solaria, which act more like regular, non-homogeneous regions with no one sharing all the same character traits.

** In the games, all Pokémon have serving humans as a hat. It's possible to have a disobedient Pokémon, but there is always a way to overcome this problem and get them to submit to you. Truly untrainable Pokemon only appear in the anime and tend to be [[OlympusMons legendaries.]] Individual species have additional hats, such as Gardevoir's loyalty, and Slaking's laziness (the latter even became a Game Mechanic). The anime established early on all Pokémon are [[AlwaysLawfulGood Always Good]] and only do evil if they have an evil trainer, but this was eventually {{retcon}}ed away many years later with Pokémon serving as antagonists.
