Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })On their Wagon Train to the Stars, our intrepid heroes come across a planet whose inhabitants all share a single defining characteristic. Everybody is a robot, or a gangster, or a Proud Warrior Race Guy, or an over-the-top actor, or wearing a Nice Hat. To some degree, this is unavoidable; you only have so much screen time or page space to develop and explore a culture. This is especially true in episodic series where the heroes travel to a new planet each week and you have to both introduce a planet and tell a story all within a single episode. If planets are revisited, it also provides an easy way for viewers to keep track of which planet is which and remember where the story is set.
Earth itself is sometimes portrayed as a Planet of Hats.note And anthropologists have discovered many universal human traits that could plausibly fit the bill.The defining human characteristic is often "pluck", "sheer cussedness", creativity, and sometimes even "diversity", though "evil" and "stupidity" are common in more misanthropic works. Sometimes it's stated that Hattery is the natural state and it's humans that are the aberrant ones, or rather that humanity's Hat is not having one.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })Writers love to use the hat planet to represent controversial issues in society whenever they can. This way the show's characters can take a thinly disguised public stand on an issue that the network execs would otherwise consider too taboo to openly discuss. We can't have our heroes discussing euthanasia, but should they stumble across a Planet of Hats where everyone who gets sick is put to death, then it's okay. Eventually the plots will run out with an entire race of identical people so one or more of the species will have their hat fall off, declaring My Species Doth Protest Too Much. Alternately, the show may explore why Klingon Scientists Get No Respect. For maximum typing, the characters can also be physically uniform, as in People of Hair Color.
The Planet of Hats may also be an unintended result of a Character Exaggeration type Plot Tumor applied to an entire race, when the audience had previously only seen a single representative who the writers now wish to market. For cases where a planetary hat is extrapolated retroactively from a single character, see Planet of Copyhats.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_3'); })Just for comparison, within the 29% of Earth's surface that's solid land, our planet hosts just under two hundred sovereign states, with an estimated 5,000 ethnicities and 7,000 living languages. There is no reason to suspect that alien life forms would be any different, but in media they are nowhere near as diverse as one might expect. If anything, aliens tend to be surprised by the amount of diversity among humans.
Occasionally justified in settings with relatively convenient space travel and colonization. Consider that anatomically modern Homo sapiens had scattered across the continents long before what we call "civilization" developed independently in different parts of the world. The absence of fast transportation or communication caused populations to exchange little information with each other until they had already developed persistent cultural differences. If a like-minded group of space colonists settled an uninhabited planet, they could attempt to preserve cultural unity with the aid of mass communication, trade, and travel from day one. In even more mobile cases, populations might naturally tend to "sort" themselves by moving to like-minded worlds.
Compare: Gang of Hats. Contrast: Multicultural Alien Planet. See also Rubber-Forehead Aliens, Intelligent Gerbil, Scary Dogmatic Aliens, Tribe of Priests. May result because or into Apathy Killed the Cat. If the planet's hat is being evil, it's an example of Always Chaotic Evil. Serious Business is what happens when the show's setting gets a hat. This trope in itself is a good example of Sci-Fi Writers Have No Sense of Scale. See Single-Biome Planet when the planet is unnaturally uniform physically. One-Product Planet is a subtrope, but focuses on economics rather than culture.
Has nothing to do with a certain war-themed hat simulator, Or the show Lidsville which was a literal planet of hats. For the webcomic of the same name, see here.

The computer game Spaceward Ho! gets honorable mention. It's a light turn-based strategy affair and doesn't have culture, but planet ownership is indicated by hats. A variety of cowboy hats worn by the actual planets. (Santa hats if the game is played on December 25th.)

Puella Magi Madoka Magica: No other planets are seen, but according to Kyubey, Earth's hat is having emotions, which in turn allows Magical Girls to exist. All other intelligent lifeforms in the universe are supposedly The Spock compared to humans. Unfortunately, this makes humans by far the most attractive option for exploitative energy production.

In the comedy science fiction Hoka series by Poul Anderson and Gordon R. Dickson, the Hokas' "hat" is that they are entranced by fiction. Give them a story and they will start to live it out, believing (or at least acting) as if they are in it. They have whole cities based on various periods of human history, with Ancient Rome, Victorian England, American Wild West and other places. One of them believes he is Napoleon and has an entire city of Hokas willing to follow him as leader of "France". Actually, a better way of saying it is that their hat is following tropes, as they tend to act out the trope more than reality. Luckily, they are non-violent, so they tend to just fake the wars and other violent parts.

The Neighborhood of Make-Believe segment of Mister Rogers' Neighborhood deconstructed this trope, in a child-appropriate way, with alien visitors from the Planet Purple. Everyone from this planet has purple skin and hair, they dress in identical purple clothes and speak in a monotone voice, and all the boys are named Paul and all the girls are named Pauline. They were used to illustrate how boring the world would be if everyone was the same.

Wonder Woman (1942): Back in the Golden Age before there was a shared DCU Wondy often came across planets where not only were all the inhabitants similar but also all wore the same outfit. A recurring planet in her tales was Venus, where the inhabitants were all butterfly winged women with matching outfits and rules similar to the Amazons but most of the planets she interacted with had a hat of misogyny instead.

The United Powers League of StarCraft took some very drastic measures to turn Earth into one in order to remove all the differences that lead to wars and other conflicts. They made English the official language of the world, banned all the old religions in favor of a philosophy of the "divinity of mankind", and made cybernetics and genetic engineering illegal, among other things. Those who did not conform to these new standards were forcibly rounded up and executed, leading to a death toll of 400,000,000. Doran Routhe had 40,000 of these dissidents selected to be put into cryogenic sleep and sent off to colonize other worlds, leading the Terrans to populate the Koprulu Sector that serves as the main setting of the games.

Shadows of the Apt: Every race in that world is a member of a hat (though to some degree this is justified, as their totem insect affects each race on a biological level). The Mantis-kinden are all lightning-fast and skilled in battle, the Flies are all cunning, extremely small and agile, Scorpions are big, bald, strong and bad-tempered, Beetles are Made of Iron and stocky, Moths are delicate and mystical, Ants are superstrong and devoid of personality and Spiders are all beautiful seducers/seductresses with an innate taste for intrigue. This gets further generalized as the races get categorized as Apt or Inapt. If a character is Apt, then they'll be technologically adept and kinda unattractive, whereas the Apt are incapable of understanding technology more advanced than a lever, are good-looking and are magically capable.

This was a major complaint in Ross's Game Dungeon's review of Deus Ex: Human Revolution: Humanity's hat in 2032 is cybernetic augmentation. There is very little casual dialogue or worldbuilding not devoted to augmentations, the impact of which was supposedly able to revive Detroit and construct a Chinese Layered Metropolis from scratch within... a couple decades from now. This is in contrast to the original Deus Ex, which explored a multitude of themes from terrorism to transhumanism, and was also much more grounded in reality compared to Human Revolution despite taking place twenty years later (i.e. cities still look pretty much the same as they do in the present, while Human Revolution is getting close to Crystal Spires and Togas territory).

Starbound: Each race as at least two components to their hats; Florans have the savage and plant-life hat, Humans currently are a race without a home planet, Glitch are stuck in the past due to an issue with programming (hence their name), Apex are ape-men who seem to follow the government strongly, Hylotl are fish people who are the most peaceful of the races, to the point of getting mockery from time to time, Avians are a strongly religious race with a heavy May Inca Tec aesthetic, and Novakids are Space Westerners with bodies composed of energy.

In Startopia, the alien races are each suited to one specific task — OK, two related tasks for the blue-collar Salthogs. Karmarama are purple four-armed hippies, that plant seeds. Turraken are two-headed nerds, that are all scientists. Sirens are sexy winged humanoids, and the only aliens in the game with obvious gender dimorphism, and they "love" others. And so on. The most specialised are the Grekka Targ, who are solely employed to run your communications gear.
The Greys are all experts in xenobiology after experimenting on all known races, so they run the sickbays. The Kasvagorians are all Proud Warrior Race Guys, making them useful only as security guards. The Zedem Monks are, well, a race of monks, whose hands have evolved to naturally be in the prayer gesture. The Polvakian Gem Slugs are all hedonistic aristocrats and an obvious parody of the Hutts.

This was the objective of the Smithy Gang in Super Mario RPG: To turn the Mushroom Kingdom into a world filled with... WEAPONS!
You also visit a couple Towns of Hats. Moleville is full of anthropomorphic moles who are all miners, Yo'ster Island has its entire populace (of Yoshis) obsessed with racing, Monstro Town is populated almost exclusively by monsters who have gone straight. But the weirdest has to be Marrymore, a town that is all about weddings. The only places of note in the entire town are a wedding chapel, and a fancy hotel for the honeymoon.

The various Daily Life with Monster Girl species are defined by one particular trait: lamias are lascivious, harpies are incredibly dumb, centaurs behave like medieval knights, mermaids are obsessed with the concept of "tragic love", arachnes are bascially dominatrixes, dullahans are chuunibyous, and so forth.

The Belgariad series of novels by David Eddings:
Each of the nations of the West has its own hat - unusually, each is explicitly engineered by destiny. To a first approximation, based on the characters encountered: All Sendars are farmers, all Drasnians are spies, all Tolnedrans are merchants, all Chereks are Viking warriors, and all Nyssans are drug-addicted poisoners.
Most of the 'hats' are actually fantasy archetypes based on Earth cultures — the Chereks are Vikings Up to Eleven, the Algars are the Mongols likewise, the Drasnians appear to be a Renaissance Italy stereotype transplanted into a different geographical setting, the Tolnedrans are based on the Roman Empire (hence both their mercantile aspect and their obsessive road-building and disciplined legions), the Arends are medieval high chivalry myths taken to the point of self-parody, etc. The unflappable demeanour, their courtesy, and the general obsession with propriety of the Sendars seem to be more English than anything.
This is somewhat justified, as each group were hand-picked by a Physical God, who shaped them specifically to align to their ideals, and possibly more than just in terms of commandments - the various disciples of Aldur, with the exception of Beldin, and particularly Belgarath, are all noted to look a lot like their Master. It is quite possible that something similar seeped into the national character of the chosen peoples. The exception are the Sendars, who were "created" by an immortal sorceress, and are a mixture of the various peoples around them. It is perhaps telling that they are by far the most stable of the nations of the West.
The Angarak nations on the Western continent started out as pretty hatty - Nadraks are more amoral counterparts of the Drasnians, the Thulls are the bulky and not overly bright workers who might as well have a sign saying 'kick me' painted on their backs, while the Murgos are the warrior aristocracy with the attendant ego. But then, they were under the control of an insane god for millennia. Certainly, it's notable that the Malloreans, who managed to get out from under the Grolim Church and do their own thing, culturally merging with the Melcenes in the process, became equivalent to the Sendars in their ethnic mixing and social stability, and the Tolnedrans in their secularism.
Moreover, the tribes of Angarak originally were the CASTES of Angarak, and Torak mistook their differences for tribal rather than professional distinctions after being away doing god-stuff/whinging in self-pity for a couple thousand years.
Eddings recycles revisits recycles those themes in the Elenium and Tamuli novels: All Styrics are self-pitying magicians, all Atans are warriors, All Tamuli are polite to a fault, etc.

While many planets in Honor Harrington are interesting, multi-cultural places, others are outright Planet of Hats type places:
Montana, on which everyone acts like stereotypical cowboys, which is lampshaded by one of the Montanans when he explains that his ancestors fell in love with an ideal, regardless of whether that ideal ever actually existed. In short, their planet's Hat is a Stetson.
Grayson is a planet of stubborn traditionalists, even those who want to reform the society want to do so to make it more like Grayson and when new ideas or technology are introduced from off-world they almost inevitably improve it first to make it a Grayson advancement. Furthermore much of their mindset is infectious so even offworlders start acting Grayson in time. This is perhaps exemplified by their name for God; while most modern versions of Christianity call God things like a healer, protector, or provider, Graysons call God "The Tester", and believe that everyone faces their own personal Test.

In the Justice League of America story "Heaven's Ladder" has a race of aliens infiltrating various planets to discover how each one views the afterlife and their religious beliefs. For most races the alien sleeper-agents are things like priests or religious leaders, as all of the universe's alien races only have one religion apiece. On Earth, their human representative is a professor of comparative theologies.

Winx Club 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.

The "offscreen" regions of Dark Souls tend to fall into this. People from Catarina are jovial, noble, but often somewhat bumbling knights; Forossa was a land of Blood Knights; Thorolund and Lindelt are defined by devout religiosity; Mirrah was home to knights and murderers; the Great Swamp provides you with pyromancy tutors; Vinheim is the home of sorcery; Volgen is mercantile and mercenary; Astora is predominantly home to focused and honourable knights, plus one blacksmith; and Londor is the home of shadowy, deceptive Hollows and will be "made whole" by the Unkindled One usurping the First Flame in Dark Souls III. Carim is an interesting one; it started out with an unsavoury reputation, then underwent a cultural Heel–Faith Turn and absorbed most of the now-absent Thorolund's religiosity in III.

The X-Universe is really bad about this, due in large part to the games' near lack of plot and characterization (though that's not necessarily bad). Every faction has a hat that fits every character of that race. The Terrans are high-tech xenophobes, the Split are a Proud Warrior Race, the Teladi are Proud Merchant Lizard Folk, the Boron are peace-loving Squid People, etc.

In one Mickey Mouse detective story Mickey and Goofy are employed by aliens from a planet where everyone is a thief — its perfectly legal to steal, people are suspicious of someone who doesn't, and their leader got his position because he is such a great crook. (No, not by cheating. People voted for him because he was such a dishonest man.) They need an outsider because they are temporarily hosting an artifact shared with other, friendly planets, and they don't trust anyone on their own planet — with good reason.

Prince Valiant occasionally features Islands of Hats. When Val is on a sea voyage, it's somewhat common for his ship to get waylaid by supernatural means.

Darkwing Duck had some fun with this trope in one episode, where our hero visits the planet Mertz, where every single person is a superhero (complete with everyone having a totally unnecessary secret identity.) There is only one person on the planet without super powers, whose name is actually Ordinary Guy. Everyone else spends their entire lives trying to rescue him from peril (which in practice means gigantic, city-smashing brawls over who gets to help him cross the street.) Needless to say, Ordinary Guy's life sucks. Eventually, he snaps and becomes the planet's first and only supervillain. This gives him an outlet for his rage, and gives the heroes some actual evil to fight, making everyone much happier.
An absolutely literal version of this trope is used as well: Two episodes featured aliens from a planet where all aliens actually are hats, who hop onto other beings' heads to control them.

In The Divine Comedy, the seven planets medievals thought orbited the Earth, which include the Moon and the Sun, are fully inhabited by saints of similar natures. The trope is justified, as Beatrice goes out of her way to make it clear that the saints are on the same planet because they are similar, and not vice versa.
The Moon is the planet of The Oathbreakers who didn't absolutely will to break their oaths.
Mercury is the planet of were too driven by fame and honor on Earth.
Venus is the planet of those too focused on romantic pursuits.
The Sun is the planet of wise men.
Mars is the planet of the holy warriors.

Sam Starfall of Freefall is from a species of kleptomaniacs, because his race evolved from scavengers. Sqids who pull of incredible acts of stealing are heroes. In Sqid mythology, the gods have never actually given anything to mortals, and everything mortals have that came from them was stolen. Humans have seriously considered wiping out the Sqids because their values are so different than humans that conflict would seem inevitable should they ever gain space travel.

Played interestingly in the New Jedi Order series with the Yuuzhan Vong who basically wear the hat of "fanatical devotion", but there's a great deal of variety in how this manifestsnote obsession with pain and death, while it a first seems like the Vong hat, is a part of their religion and therefore more a side-effect of the "fanatical devotion" hat than a hat in its own right. It mostly breaks down along caste lines (warrior caste hat: war, priest caste hat: religion, shaper caste hat: Mad Scientist, and intendant caste hat: bureaucracy), though two of the main Vong characters (Nom Anor and Nen Yim) are both rebellious spirits who break their society's mold in different ways, while neither buying in to the brutal religion that shapes most of their culturenote  Nom is purely selfish and manipulates the Vong political/military structure for his own benefit; Nen is an idealistic scientist who defies law and tradition in order to better serve her people. Still, it's practically unheard of to see an apathetic Vong; they're almost all intensely devoted to something.

In Power Rangers, planet Onyx. Its hat is the Wild West, existing largely as a place for the Evil Monster Saloon to be located.
An unusual example is Inquiris. Little is known about the planet, save that the natives, for whatever reason, cannot make declarative or exclamatory statements. Yes, a planet who's hat is literally a specific type of sentence.

The Discworld novels contain a number of societies that result when you take the expected stereotypes and turn them up until the knob breaks off. Notably:
Dwarves, for whom gender diversity is something that happens to other people because both sexes have long, lush beards and dress in so many layers of clothing that they default to an androgynous barrel shape, and every individual has a bone-deep instinct for mining, smithing, and trading (mechanical work and gadgetry, while often associated with dwarves in other works, is specifically noted not to be a common trait of Disc dwarves, the dwarf that the narrative is focusing on just happens to be good at it). Notably, traditional dwarves consider even identifying as female to be shameful and obscene, though this seems to be easing off in more progressive areas. In later books the more extremist dwarves acquire a new hat where they basically become the Taliban.
Lancre, where narrativium seems to be a bit stronger than elsewhere, and thus stories tend to be a law of physics. People there tend to break out in fairy tales.
Uberwald, a country of Gothic Horror where every vampire myth is true, but no two vampire families necessarily have the same combination of traits and weaknesses, and pretty much every classic horror trope (werewolves, mad science, decrepit castles on every mountaintop...) can be found if you just walk far enough.
Igors. Whether they are a family, a social group of like-minded individuals, or a species in their own right is unclear, but they all have a crazy talent at mad science and surgery of all kinds, and all serve as an assistant of some sort to a Marthter. The men tend to be hunchbacked and artfully ugly, while the females (Igoras and Igorinas) tend to be drop-dead gorgeous, to fit with the expected stereotypes of, respectively, The Igor and the Mad Scientist's Beautiful Daughter. It is also demonstrated in Monstrous Regiment that they can be quite gender-fluid within these parameters.

Subverted in Quentyn Quinn, Space Ranger! Groonch the Gnorch, a parody of Worf from Star Trek, says that despite being raised with the ideals of another alien race, he strives to be the kind of noble warrior honored by "the Gnorch peoples." Quentyn asks, "Which peoples?" Groonch then learns, to his complete surprise, that the Gnorch species is rather culturally diverse and only a handful of ancient tribes were as warlike as he thought. His own outfit is an odd cultural mishmash.

Gilneas in World of Warcraft: Cataclysm, even before worgen curse, seems to be a literal Nation of Hats. As far as you can see, everyone in the starting zone wears some kind of hat. And not just any hats, but nice hats!
Warcraft 2 had several examples of this trope among the human nations and orcish clans. Dalaran was all mages, Kul'Tiras was all sailors, Stromgarde was all warriors, Alterac was all snobs. The Twilight's Hammer was all end of the world cultists, the Stormreavers were all warlocks, Laughing Skull were all backstabbing traitors, Warsong could all do earsplitting battlecries, Bonechewers were all cannibals. In World of Warcraft, dwarves continue to fit this loosely. Ironforge dwarves are mostly smiths and disciplined warriors, Wildhammers are nature loving barbarians, and Dark Irons are all sneaky spies, thieves, assassins, and pyromaniacs.
Cataclysm has provided many races a chance to get new hats. Night elves can now be magi, something that was long forbidden in their culture. Dwarves can now be shamans, providing stark contrast to their otherwise industrial nature (at least of the Bronzebeard variety). Orcs are seriously divided over whether or not Garrosh Hellscream is a good leader—even though the should fully embrace a blood-and-thunder warrior. There is still a tremendous amount of hat wearing though, and while not all races have true hats, they have collective niches, which both the Horde and the Alliance forming parts of Six Race gang.

The Tarulians in The Hair Bear Bunch episode "No Space Like Home" have an unorthodox custom. They select a new leader each day and lock the previous leader in a glass cage. Guess what happens when Peevly, Botch and the bears land on it.

The Dire Wraiths' hat is evil! Seriously, they're a race of evil magic-users who revere evil as a concept in its own right. We meet a grand total of one Wraith who decided he was sick of it and wanted to just settle in as a human on Earth, and his fellow Wraiths murder him for daring to think such a thing.

Red Dwarf had Rimmerworld, a planet populated by Rimmer clones. The population idealized the core aspects of Rimmer... which happened to be cowardice, backstabbing, snottiness, arrogance, and hunger for power. Those that deviated were hunted down and executed.

In The Restaurant at the End of the Universe the idea of the "Shoe Event Horizon" is brought forth: a situation in which a society becomes economically and emotionally depresses, everyone buys shoes to cheer themselves up, more shoes are bought so more shops and less effort are dedicated to them, as the lower quality shoes break apart more shoes are bought, repeat ad infinitum. essentially turning said planet into a both literal and societal Planet of Shoes. this happens to two planets in the series: Frogstar World B and Brontitall leading to both worlds suffering economic collapse, their surfaces being covered in geological layers of shoes and the people evolving into birds.

Exalted: Every group wears a hat. every group has five subgroups, which each wear a hat.
Solar Exalts wear the hat of the superheroes. Dawncaste = warriors, Zenith Caste = Priests and performers, Twilight Caste = inventors and scholars, Night Caste = ninja assassins, and Eclipse Caste = diplomats
Lunar Exalts wear the hat of the Protectors and of the feral monsters. Two of their types were destroyed, meaning they are one of the few types that does not have five subgroups. They have Full Moon (warriors), No Moon (mystics), and Changing Moon (rogues) castes.
Abyssals Exalted and Infernal Exalted, both corrupted Solars, wear the hat of the Rebels and destroyers. Their castes are reflections of the Solar castes — for instance, a Daybreak (corrupted twilight) might be a necrosurgeon or demon-summoner, whereas their Infernal versions, Defilers, are all about seeking how to tear down the existing reality and create their own, better version.
Sidereal Exalted wear the hat of the master manipulators. Their types are based on their patron planet/Maiden, and are pretty clear based on what that god is a patron of: Voyages (travelers, loners, and explorers), Serenity (lovers, hedonists, and pleasure-seekers), War (duh), Secrets (spies and info-gatherers), and Endings (assassins)
Dragon-Blooded Exalts wear the hat of the Samurai-style nobility. The Earth, Fire, Air, Water, and Wood castes are fairly standard elemental interpretations. The Noble Houses that are led by an elemental individual also tend to take on stereotypical traits.
Amongst everyone else, you can expect a Dragon-King to be either kung-fu master seeking to rebuild his or her near-extinct race, or a mindless brute who kill anyone who gets into their territory. And a Jadeborn is either a Worker, Warrior, or an Artisan, as Autochthon willed them.

The Hat of the Daxamites is violent xenophobia. Daxamites who don't try to kill aliens on sight are considered outcasts, and in one case was brainwashed by his own parents so that he would be a xenophobe. And just to complicate matters for aliens, they're on offshoot of Kryptonians, who win the Superpower Lottery when exposed to a yellow sun. The few notable Daxamites like "Mon-El" and "Julia" are white sheep whove gone so far as to mostly ditch their Daxamite names.

Used a lot in the Stargate-verse:
Stargate SG-1:
Particularly in the earlier episodes, nearly every planet the SG-1 team visits is based on a particular human culture. It's a justified or at least handwaved by saying that the people were transplanted to that planet from Earth, and their culture has just been stagnating since. There are the Middle Ages, the Norse, the Greeks, and, of course, the ancient Egyptians, among others. Justified in that most of these planets were supposedly populated by people of earth who had been taken to that planet by one of the more highly-developed species - the Goa'uld and the Asgard being the typical abductors.
The Goa'uld deliberately stagnate the culture of any people they transplant. They like to keep them primitive, because 1) primitives are more easily coerced into worship by their awesome-but-impractical weapons, and 2) primitives are absolutely no threat to them (the Goa'uld really hate it when people become advanced enough to see they aren't gods). Earth only developed to the point of being a threat because the Goa'uld lost access to the Earth Stargate and then *forgot where the planet was*. The Asgard also (somewhat) stagnated the Norse people they transplanted because a treaty they had with the Goa'uld didn't allow any protected planet (the planets the Goa'uld agreed not to touch) to develop to a point where they would be a threat to them. The Asgard were not in a position to fight the Goa'uld due to the war with the Replicators, so the transplanted humans were kept relatively primitive (though not so much as the Goa'uld transplanted ones) for their protection.
In "2001", the Aschen are described as: "They don't get excited in general, General. It's like an entire planet of accountants." Their more significant hat is planetary genocide.
The Nox, had preachy pacifism as their hat as well as literal funny hats.
The Goa'uld hat appears to be arrogance and sense of superiority, something that is present even in the Tok'ra, non-malevolent Goa'uld.
The Jaffa are a Proud Warrior Race as a result of their entire species being enslaved to serve as the Goa'uld military.
The Asgard hat is clearly science and scholarship as we never meet an Asgard who does any kind of physical labor. This is also justified as thousands of years of cloning have weakened their bodies to the point that an excited hug can hurt them.
Earth also has its own hat: Genre Savvy. SG-1 is the most Genre Savvy of them all, but most other minor characters show at least some signs of this trait. We Tau'ri have a technological hat, too — instead of basing more advanced tech off more exotic principles, we use fundamentally basic equipment in increasingly refined ways. This is particularly noted in our really spectacular projectile weapons.
In Stargate Atlantis, the Wraith are a race consisting solely of warriors who live to eat. In the last season, Todd the Wraith mentions that feeding on humans is the driving force in their society with little beyond that. We did finally get a small glimpse of Wraith society in Season 5's "The Queen". Judging from that episode, the entire society is divided into Queens, who seem to spend their time intimidating one another, their male Advisors/Viziers, who seem to specialize in Magnificent Bastardry, and the possibly asexual Drones, whose duties apparently involve patrolling ships and standing guard (not unlike actual Soldier Drones in Bee colonies). All of them are in thrall to a prime Queen (called The Primary in this particular segment shown, but this may not be the case with every Wraith alliance). Exactly where the various Male Wraiths who serve as scientists and field commanders (who are also uniformly errhm, uniformed in leather) fit into this mix is never really shown.

The Stormlight Archive exists in a world of hats to some extent. The Thaylen are merchants, the Azish are bureaucrat, the Alethi are warriors, etc. In story, this is explained as being a large part of the planet's history. When apocalyptic wars (called Desolations) against the Voidbringers were happening on a regular basis, the various nations (called Silver Kingdoms in modern times) divided duties. Alethela trained warriors, Thalath managed supply lines and trade, etc. Now it's been four thousand years since a Desolation and many of the Silver Kingdoms have shifted size or split into smaller states, but the history of their purposes plays a major role in defining their modern cultures.

Dungeons & Dragons:
In the earliest edition of D&D, Elves and Dwarves were classes. Which means that all Elves and all Dwarves had the same level progression, learned the same kills and abilities.
4th Edition D&D splits the old traits of the elf race into two new races called "elves" and "eladrin". Because, you know, you can't have a single species wearing the intellectual hat and the close-to-nature hat at the same time.
Humanity's hat in 4th edition is being driven, ambitious, The Determinator, and being able to learn things faster than other races because of their shorter lifespans.
It's also heavily implied that humans are the only species in the setting other than dragons that can mate with any other species and produce viable offspring. Our hat is that we Really Get Around.
The Drow or Dark Elf hat is treachery, with the exception of Drizzzt and all his imitators.
Beholders are almost all narcissistic xenophobes.
Neogi are completely obsessed with slavery.
Giff (not to be confused with Gith) are an entire species of militaristic mercenaries, with a British flavor.

Farscape had an episode on the planet Litigara where 90% of the inhabitants were lawyers and the remaining 10% servants who ran the various non law-related services.
It could be called a planet of balaclavas, since that's what the lawyers always seemed to wear. Also, the Judge wore a hat that was a mix between a sombrero and a dinner plate, and (like the uniform) the colour looked like Dolores Umbridge picked it out.
It's also made clear in the episode that their civilization is actively collapsing because of this setup. The events of the episode quite likely pushed it over the edge; the crew doesn't stick around to find out.
The Nebari are presently attempting to make their home planet a Planet of Hats through brutal enforcement of the law- to the point that dissenters are often simply brainwashed into perfect citizens. As a result, the only Nebari encountered in the show are either cold-hearted police officers or rebellious criminals like Chiana.
The Kanvians have a planet of mafia lords. Their government is based in the ruling of a criminal family over the others.
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 exist.

In the Legion of Super-Heroes, most planets are like this, with their "hat" being related to their super-power; Naltor, planet of precogs, Titan, planet of telepaths, Colu, planet of geniuses, et cetera. There used to be a rule that there could be no two members from the same planet, because "planet" and "superpower" were that synonymous.
They also have two characters from Winath who (at least some of the time) share a superpower, but that's not Winath's hat — almost all the people of Winath are identical twins, and the two Legionnaires, Lightning Lad and Lightning Lass, are Half-Identical Twins, so similar that by deeping her voice and keeping the Most Common Superpower bound, Ayla managed to impersonate Garth. In some media, the whole planet is devoted to farming.
Ultra Boy comes from Rimbor, which is The Planet Of Dark Alleys and Biker Gangs. They don't have powers, though: Jo Nah got his powers from a Space Whale.
And of course, the planet Bizmol, whose hat is eating things.
This is all justified in Legion of Super-Heroes Annual #2, which shows that all of these planets were specifically colonized a thousand years earlier by advanced humans with similar power-sets after Invasion!! happened.

Vampire: The Masquerade as an example, most players choose their clan/Hat from the Brujah (rebellion), Gangrel (wilderness), Malkavian (insanity), Nosferatu (secrecy), Toreador (art), Tremere (magic), or Ventrue (wealth). Being Hatless here brands you a Caitiff, giving you the outcast Hat. For all that the Clans are stated to be diverse (and some atypical examples are given as character templates in the splatbooks) canon characters are almost always at most slight variations on a Hat.

In Mom and Dad Save the World, the title characters get kidnapped by (and save the world from) an Evil Overlord from a planet where the hat is... mind-boggling amounts of stupidity. As an example, one of the deadliest weapons on this world is called the light grenade, which instantly disintegrates whoever picks it up. And how does this decimate an entire army? It says "Pick Me Up".

In the Halo:
Human colonies tend to take after one or two particular cultures; Harvest had a mix of American Midwest and Scandinavian, Reach's original Hungarian settlers still had a major impact on on the planet's culture, the Rubble's population seems to be largely Hispanic, etc.
Done on purpose by the Covenant. The Prophets set up their society so that none of the various races could get by on their own (Elites are warriors, Grunts are laborers, etc.). One Elite spends the whole of Halo: Glasslands searching ancient texts to rediscover things like agriculture, to keep the Elite homeworld from total collapse.

Mass Effect 2 suggests humanity's hat is more likely to be discarded than other species. Mordin observes that most species tend to fit certain expectations—similar intelligence, biotic ability, behavior, what have you. While there are outliers in all species (geniuses and morons) humans tend to have more outliers than not.
Humans are seen as violent upstarts - some backstory material mentions that, although each race had internal wars, what the humans did to each other was regarded as especially hideous (even when compared to the krogan). Also, humans are rapacious colonists and breeders.
The most common view is that if humans have a hat, it's hyper-ambition and pragmatism. We're also master of diplomacy, as in actual diplomacy: we're very good at manipulating others and lying through our teeth. After all, we became a Council race within a few years of getting FTL technology when other races have been trying for centuries to get a Council seat, and depending on actions you take in the first game, we can kill the rest of the Council off and leave humanity unopposed. Whether our hat is presented as a good thing or bad thing depends on whether the player goes Paragon (takes a sympathetic and idealistic view of aliens but generally holds that Humans Are Leaders) or Renegade (takes a rather ruthless "humans come first" approach).

Mass Effect
Throughout the entire series, this trope is played to varying levels of straight, aversion and subversion. It is made very clear from the start that while each alien race does have its own unique, defining aspects, there are outliers to every species.
Lampshaded in Mass Effect. Kaidan comments that Warrior Poet Wrex isn't exactly what he was expecting from a krogan, to which Wrex dryly replies, "Because humans are all different, but every krogan is exactly alike." Kaidan hastily shuts up.
Wrex has a response for Garrus when he confronts Wrex with the same observation: 'I suppose it was easier to unleash a genocide virus on the krogan when you thought we were all mindless monsters, turian.' Of course, Garrus was just a detective in C-Sec before signing on with Shepard, so insinuating that he's at all responsible for the genophage (because he's a turian, and turians wronged krogans, so obviously...) is a mite hypocritical of Wrex. Or precisely his point.
According to aliens, humanity's hat is that they're a bit of a loose cannon. Also, we seem to be evolving towards a monoculture with minimal racial differences due to globalization - we just haven't gotten quite as far as the other races, yet. The batarians also see humans as the Jerkass (and vice versa), mostly due to competition over colonizing the same region of space.
As the story progresses, it is slowly becoming revealed that Humanity's "hat" is The Determinator. They use their ingenuity to adapt to meet whatever kind of challenge is thrown at them. Use a binding treaty to restrict the number of Dreadnoughts (essentially a ship built around a BFG) that they can utilize? They invent a new class of ship that is not bound by this restriction, yet can stand toe to toe against such ships (a reference to the US's circumventing the Washington Naval Treaty limiting the construction of battleships by developing aircraft carriers instead). Reaper invasion looming on the horizon? Humans were the only race that even thought of the idea of destroying a Mass Relay (pretty much everyone else basically assumed it would be impossible). The Illusive Man resurrected Shepard primarily because Shepard was "more than just a soldier". Shepard had become the best traits of humanity distilled into one person; whether Shepard was more on the Jerkass side of things or not, Shepard definitely embodies The Determinator, and thus was worth the extreme financial and technological investment to preserve.
One of the defining traits of the quarians is having a hard time shaking their hats: being basically space gypsies with a criminal streak. Unfortunately for most well-meaning members of the species, two populations tend to make it stick: quarian criminals (who seem disproportionately common to other races because they get exiled from the flotilla) and over-zealous pilgrims (who don't care where they get useful technology from, so long as they can get done and get back home).
There's a lot of subversion of this trope in the franchise too. One of the main features of Mass Effect was that although each race has a hat, the hats also tend to come off a lot. Turians are presented as militaristic and disciplined, yet you encounter drunken turian soldiers, scientists, janitors and shopkeepers (one of whom is part of a Running Gag involving a human trying to return a purchase to his store). Asari are presented as mediators and negotiators, yet we encounter asari commandos, strippers, pirates, slavers, and Machiavellian diplomats trying to manipulate Shepard to their own ends. Salarians are presented as spies and scientists, but we encounter salarian corporate officers, shopkeepers, mercenaries, and a group of impressively disciplined commandos. Krogans are supposed to be largely brainless brutes who dream of fighting in a massive horde yet we've encountered a mad scientist, a researcher note Amusingly, he actually wore the krogan hat proudly. Apparently he had to kill the previous head researcher to gain the position, a mechanic, and a love-stricken poet.
Some individuals will actually subvert their race's hat to their own ends. One krogan businessman on Illium was extremely polite and well-spoken, but used his status as a krogan for pure intimidation factor, an important asset on a world such as Illium. A "series of polite calls", indeed. Dr. Mordin Solus in the second game explains to Shepard that because most people assume salarians are physically weak scientist types as opposed to turians and krogans who are specifically known for their military prowess, his enemies never see him coming. It doesn't hurt that he's ex-Special Tasks Group.
Not to mention the elcor, whose hat is that they speak in monotone but communicate using a lot of very subtle body language that most others can't interpret (or see). As such, their Translator Microbes account for this, establishing their tone ahead of time. Eventually you run into an elcor who has found a way around this:
Mass Effect 2 suggests humanity's hat is more likely to be discarded than other species.

While there are outliers in all species (geniuses and morons) humans tend to have more outliers than not.

Whether our hat is presented as a good thing or bad thing depends on whether the player goes Paragon (takes a sympathetic and idealistic view of aliens but generally holds that Humans Are Leaders) or Renegade (takes a rather ruthless "humans come first" approach).
The games even subvert this for species with only one representative. The second game's DLC introduces the yahg, who Liara classifies as a primitive race of hulking brutes who are limited to their home world because they slaughtered the First Contact team sent to establish terms with them. The yahg we meet is the freaking Shadow Broker.

Most episodes of The Super Mario Bros Super Show! featured Mario, Luigi, Toad, and Princess Peach travelling to a different world built around a particular theme (e.g., karate, rock-n-roll, cowboys, rap). Also, Bowser and his minions always seemed to conform to the "hat" of the world, appearing as a different stock villain in each episode.

The Transformers: The Movie has the planet Junk, where a race of robots made of scrap live; their entire culture is based on TV and radio transmissions from Earth, with the result that they say things like "Stop, thief! No welcome wagon 'hello stranger' with that new coffee flavor for you!" This was homaged in the Live-Action Adaptation where Optimus Prime claimed the Autobots learned to speak English "from your Internet".

In FTL: Faster Than Light, the races are all defined by certain traits. The Engi have Machine Empathy, but are awkward in combat, instead relying on attack and defense drones. The Mantis are the opposite, being a Proud Warrior Race, but also are often violent and vicious. Rockmen are stoic and have a bit of The Fundamentalist in them, as well as being extremely wary of other races. Zoltan are Lawful Neutral (sometimes Lawful Stupid) Energy Beings. Slugs are greedy merchants with psychic powers that allow them to see through the thick nebulae where they live. And Humans...well, Humans Are Average.

Traveller is a little more complex about this. Humans overall are as complex as, well, humans, though individual worlds often have a hat. The Aslan's hat is Proud Warrior Race, though arguably that quality is detailed well enough to take the hattiness away. The K'kree are Vegetarian Jihadists (yes, really). The Zhodani's hat is Psionics.

The Abbai's hat is a focus on "community", the Brakiri's hat is business (more corporate culture as an ideal, rather than a Star Trek Ferengi-style "profit", though of course that is their ultimate goal). The Drazi's hat is pretty much "violence" — more specifically, the idea that a brawl pretty much solves any problem. The Llort's hat is basically kleptomania. The Shadows and Vorlons of course proudly promote their hats of "chaos" and "order and obedience" respectively, and try their hardest to make the younger races wear them too.

Vandread:
The two main planets are Taraak (the planet of men), a barren world where the locals are concerned with things like uniforms, practicality, appearing manly, and eating nutrition pellets (think hamster food), and Mejere (the planet of women), which looks like Las Vegas and has locals concerned with appearing nice, who eat foods that are basically dessert.
There's a darker side to this as well, as every inhabited planet was marked by a unique physical trait representing which organ was supposed to be harvested by Earth. Taraak and Mejele were male and female reproductive organs respectively.

The Point is a fable which Harry Nilsson used to make an entire soundtrack. It was later adapted into an animated film and screenplay using the soundtrack. The entire fable revolved around a planet on which everything had a point on it, with the sole exception of the main character. He is shunned as a result. Ironically at the end, the entire world becomes devoid of points with the exception of the main character, who grows a point.

While not a planet, per se, the Jägers of Girl Genius have two hats. The first, is that they love fighting. The second is that... they love hats. No, really, they REALLY like hats. One Jäger had an entire short story about him going to get a new hat. There's even rules on how the hat must be acquired- you can't just go into a store and buy one.
The fighting is justified in that Jägers were once humans who chose to transform themselves because they loved fighting.
This obsession is not limited to just the Jaegers. In particular, Franz has been seen to follow the same rules of acquisition as the Jaegers, unsurprising as the dragon has likely fought alongside them for centuries, and Bang DuPree shares their fascination with magnificent headgear along with many other personality traits. Even the Wulfenbach entourage gets in on the trend eventually.

The Jan in Alien in a Small Town are all compulsively honest. They evolved from hive-dwelling prey animals, and cooperation was essential to their survival. This doesn't cripple them in dealing with other races, for several reasons: they know that others may lie to them; their hearing is so acute that they can hear your heartbeat, making them living lie detectors; they can keep secrets, as long as they don't have to actively lie to keep them; and they have a vast network of allies because everyone trusts them.

In Gems of War, each kingdom has a particular theme, and some involve a "hat" — piety, invention, etc. However, the quest character for each kingdom is sometimes in opposition to that theme rather than an exemplar of it; for example, the kingdom of temples and paladins (Whitehelm) has you receive your quests from a vampire (Sapphira) who is being attacked by the pious folk.

Sometimes used in the Disney Mouse and Duck Comics
In one Mickey Mouse detective story Mickey and Goofy are employed by aliens from a planet where everyone is a thief — its perfectly legal to steal, people are suspicious of someone who doesn't, and their leader got his position because he is such a great crook. (No, not by cheating. People voted for him because he was such a dishonest man.) They need an outsider because they are temporarily hosting an artifact shared with other, friendly planets, and they don't trust anyone on their own planet — with good reason.
The "Reginella" subseries has various examples:
Reginella's homeworld of Pacificus is inhabitated by a Perfect Pacifist People-and for a good reason, as their Psychic Powers can be devastating under the right conditions (when coordinated by their queen Reginella a group of them has summoned lightning, and Reginella, as the queen, is incredibly powerful), so it's more about protecting the rest of the universe from themselves.
Bingo's people seem to all be bullies and proud of it. It's unclear if this is valid for their entire species or just Bingo's group, as they're the only ones seen.
The Vampirionians are all thieves, who robs anyone unlucky enough to get close to their Planet Spaceship and can't retaliate.
Paperinik New Adventures has its own examples:
All Evronians are tyrannical and evil Emotion Eaters (to the point a warrant officer commanding a cut-off group of Evronians hoped to find a superior officer to be properly mistreated), with the Imperial Council, the Emperor's subspecies, and rogue members of the high caste being outright Galactic Conquerors and their nicest members being at most Noble Demons and Pragmatic Villains. Justified in that current Evronians are all clones with some modifications depending on their post and job-to the point that Porphioolon, the first known Evronian to be an actual good person, is the result of a low caste technicians messing up the process to artificially grow a high-caste one.
All Xerbians are scientists and hold a doctorate, to the point that when asking if there's a doctor they have to specify they mean a medic.
The entire population of Armadha is in the Private Military Contractors business, either by leading an army of combat robots or manufacturing and selling said robots and anything they need to fight. Justified in that Armadha is extremely poor in resources (even air is scarce), so the only thing they have to export and get what they need to live on their Death World is themselves-and as they're tough enough to live on Armadha and too stubborn to just move somewhere else, becoming mercenary soldiers was the logical choice.

Animorphs had the Iskoort, whose Hat was guilds — there was (in order of introduction) a Trader Guild, a Criminal Guild, a Warmaker Guild (though it quickly becomes clear the Iskoort were not cut out for combat), a Servant Guild, a Worker Guild, a Superstition and Magic Guild, a Shopper Guild, and even a "News, Gossip, and Speculation Guild." And all the Traders were the most annoying salesmen imaginable. (The others were annoying, too, but they ran into Traders the most.)

The Wheel of Time: The world is comprised of hat-wearing nations and peoples. Two Rivers folk are all brave and stubborn, Cairhienin are all short and concerned with political intrigue, Arad Domani women are all seductresses, women in the various Ajahs of the Aes Sedai almost always act alike, etc. Few cultures in the series are shown to have individuals who behave contrary to their cultural stereotypes. Arguably justified with regards to the Aes Sedai; they are guided towards their appropriate Ajahs while they are still Accepted.

Top 10 (by comic book genius Alan Moore)
The comic takes place in a city where everyone — the cops, the bus drivers, the bums on the street — is a superhero or some other "science hero" trope. This does have lots of room within it, however, as the titular team has a talking dog in an exoskeleton, the world's only Yazidi superhero, and a sarcastic Mazinger Z, amongst others. Did we mention it's a police procedural?
It's eventually revealed that the "10 Precinct" (hence the "10" in "Top 10") is so called because it's the 10th in a series of alternate dimensions. Each dimension has its own precinct, and its own hat. The 10th is superheroes; other precincts include robot dinosaurs and Romans.
It's also revealed in a prequel that the city was set up after World War II and beings with superpowers were exiled to it.

The very basis of Sliders, where our protagonists would land, I mean slide, into a parallel Earth defined by a key difference with "real" Earth.
Although some episodes are more imaginative and seems to be inspired in classic horror and sci-fi movies, some of the Earths truly play this trope straight. There’s an Earth of lawyers where 90% of the population study law and even the minimal action like buying fast food would require tons of disclaiming paperwork and documentation or accidentally hitting someone slightly may result in a life-destroying sue. There was also a hippie world, a hare Krishna world and an Egyptian world (mainly based on the most basic stereotypes associated with Egypt like their alleged obsession with death, although this idea has been already discarded by modern scholars).

Some of the aliens seen in Buck Godot seem to fit this trope, with all individuals seen having similar behaviour or jobs. However, just as many are as varied as humans both in behaviour and appearance.

In the To the Stars trilogy by Harry Harrison, EarthGov has not only terraformed Single Biome Planets, they've also created a unique culture for each in order to maximise their control. For instance the agricultural planet the protagonist has been exiled to in Wheelworld is populated entirely by peasants and mechanics, ruled by a group of autocratic Familys.

A Song of Ice and Fire features several peoples that take one particular thing, usually an important resource or terrain feature, and make it the absolute center of their culture, shoehorning it into their language's figures of speech wherever possible:
The Dothraki: horses
The Lhazarene: sheep
The Iron Islands: iron and seafaring
Targaryens: Dragons & fire

In Good Omens, Angels and Demons are respectably Always Lawful Good and Always Chaotic Evil, while humanity is capable of both. Such tropes are all deconstructed, as since humanity has the free will to be either/or good and bad, they are capable of greater virtues and viler atrocities that any angel or demon could come up with to the point where Crowley considers telling everyone in Hell that they should not even bother. Since Aziraphel and Crowley themselves have lived among humans since Adam and Eve left the garden, they have essentially gone native, Crowley begrudgingly doing nice things and Aziraphel doing bad things throughout the story as a sign that humanity had rubbed off on them.

The world in Pokémon seems to be a Planet of Hats as well — much of culture and society revolves around Pokémon, from the economy (shops and huge department stores which sell only Pokémon-related goods) to the government. And since every town is surrounded by tall grass, it's technically impossible to even leave town without a Pokémon of your own.
That said, with the right tools...
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 Pokémon only appear in the anime and tend to be 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 Always Good and only do evil if they have an evil trainer, but this was eventually retconed away many years later with Pokémon serving as antagonists.

Futurama would often use ridiculous examples, i.e. the Neutral planet, the cannibal planet, planet of human-hating robots. In "Love and Rocket", Dr. Zoidberg (himself from a planet of Crustacean Space Jews) talks about the planets destroyed by love radiation why not, "including two gangster planets and a cowboy world."
The opening of a certain episode sees the Planet Express crew return pantless and low on supplies from "the planet of the moochers."
Fry goes to live on the Amish Homeworld for a while.
Don't forget the planet of gigantic man-hating tribeswomen.
The episode "The Duh-Vinci Code" introduces a planet of Insufferable Geniuses. How smart were they? Leonardo da Vinci left because he was the dumbest person there.
There's also a literal Universe of Hats. Namely, when visiting the edge of our universe, the crew sees on the other side their identical alt-selfs, only they're all wearing cowboy hats.
One episode has them visit a series of alternate-universes-in-boxes; most of these universes are one-shot-gag Hat Universes, such as the hippy universe and the eyeless universe.
Not to mention the Harlem Globetrotters, with their own planet, university, and algebra.
Subverted in one episode: There is not, in fact, a radiator planet inhabited by radiator people. Or at least, the radiator that Fry made out with wasn't one.

An episode of X Minus One featured a reptilian alien coming to a mining planet for one of their workers (basically a milder version of a Furian). The reptile alien's hat is that they Cannot Tell a Lie (although they don't have to say the whole truth either) while the "Furian's" hat is being Hot-Blooded. Lampshaded by the "Furian": "You know how they say we're all good at bar fights?"

Since the expansion of Magic: The Gathering's focus to outside of Dominaria, most planes seem to follow this sort of pattern. For instance, Kamigawa resembles Feudal Japan in culture and aesthetics, Mirrodin is made almost entirely from metal, Innistrad is an darker version of Uber Wald, and Zendikar is an adventurer's paradise with constantly-shifting landscapes and an endless number of unexplored ruins.

One episode of VeggieTales had two feuding Towns of Hats used for their Good Samaritan retelling. One town wore shoes and boots on their heads, and the other wore pots. The purpose was to show how people are divided by trivial differences, a rare acknowledgment of the silliness of Planets of Hats.

In Kino's Journey, each country is a separate Planet of Hats, such as a country devoted to nothing but the construction of a tower, or one inhabited by people who do nothing but secretarial work. Most amusing is the town which doesn't have a hat, and is trying desperately to get one. They show off some different 'ancient tradition' to every traveler who passes through. Kino remarks that this is their hat.

Justified with the Amarcians in Tales of Graces. All of them seem to be scientists or engineers of some kind. We later find out that the Amarcians aren't actually a race, the word is just what the Fodrans called engineers. They're basically what happens when everyone from one job sector gets stranded on another planet so long they form their own culture. Most present-day Amarcians aren't aware of this though.

Very much subverted for the alien species of Star City, the Ba'ren. They are very much a multi-planet, multicultural species.
Invoked by humans who are ignorant and/or hate the Ba'ren.
Lampshaded in reverse by the Ba'ren. Their researchers complain that it's hard to translate Earth media because the humans do not have a common, culture-neutral language, instead comprising of many different languages and cultures.

Invader Zim:
Parodied; the Irken Empire includes such ridiculous territories as "Conventia, the Convention Hall Planet" and "Foodcourtia," a planet of nothing but restaurants. Justified because these planets don't seem to actually start out this way: one episode shows the Tallests after the conquest of the planet Blorch, deciding to make it a "parking garage planet" literally on the spot. The Irkens themselves are a culture based on height. Dib points out how stupid this is.
Another example might be the Planet Jackers, whose culture seems to revolve around collecting new planets to throw into their sun.
Fans generally assume that the Vortians were essentially a species of nothing but scientists. This is never made explicit on the show, but it is plausible, as they are almost always mentioned in relation to some sort of technological achievement. The only two important Vort characters, Lard Nar and Prisoner 777, were both inventors.

In The Edge Chronicles, all of the Slaughterers are hunters and butchers, all of the shrykes are slave-trading warriors, and all of the trolls are lumberjacks. This even extends to occupations: the Leaguesmen are corrupt, the Sky-Scholars are evil, and the Earth-Scholars and Sky Pirates are good. However, oakelves, goblins, waifs, and (of course) fourthlings can be anything, and quarter-masters are either traitorous or fiercely loyal (sort-of hat).

Blackest Night explains that Earth's Hat is in fact that it doesn't wear a Hat; Earth is the most diverse planet in the universe. This is due to it being home to the Entity that brought Life to the universe.

From The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, the Vogons are a race of Obstructive Bureaucrats. Their correspondingly shallow personalities and total lack of creativity make them the third worst poets in the universe.
In The Restaurant at the End of the Universe the idea of the "Shoe Event Horizon" is brought forth: a situation in which a society becomes economically and emotionally depresses, everyone buys shoes to cheer themselves up, more shoes are bought so more shops and less effort are dedicated to them, as the lower quality shoes break apart more shoes are bought, repeat ad infinitum. essentially turning said planet into a both literal and societal Planet of Shoes. this happens to two planets in the series: Frogstar World B and Brontitall leading to both worlds suffering economic collapse, their surfaces being covered in geological layers of shoes and the people evolving into birds.

Subverted with the inhabitants of Planets Wait-Your-Turn, Tell-a-Lie, and Gut in 3-2-1 Penguins!, as their hats were put on by outside forces. I.E. a cutting-in-line bug caused the Wait-Your-Turners' hat to be impatience, the king pressing the button that caused Tell-a-Lie's moon to fall and him telling the Tell-a-Liars to constantly lie caused the Tell-a-Liars' hat to be dishonesty, and cereal caused the one-eyed pigs' hat to be gluttony.

Warhammer 40,000: Many worlds are characterised by this — everyone from Cadia is a soldier, everyone from Krieg (German for "war") is an exceptionally grim and dour soldier in a longcoat, everyone from Catachan is Rambo. To be fair, they come from a planet sitting at the gates to a Negative Space Wedgie from hell, a (self-made) radioactive wasteland, and a Jungle Death World full of carnivorous plants and even worse animals respectively. The hats are likely survival mechanisms. For Imperial hats, the Imperium is a basically a portmanteau of the Roman Empire, the Catholic Church, the Third Reich and the U.S.S.R all turned Up to Eleven, so everyone being the same is not so incredible.
Eldar:
Everyone from Ulthwe is a Psyker and a Chessmaster.
Everyone from Saim-Hann is an arrogant and aggressive Barbarian on a jetbike.
Everyone from Alaitoc is a hooded loner with a sniper rifle.
Everyone from Biel-Tan is a disciplined and merciless Proud Warrior Race Guy.
Everyone from Iyanden is a Wraithguard/Wraithlord.
Space Marines:
Every White Scar is a futuristic Mongol on a bike.
Every Blood Angel is a cultured space vampire berserker.
Every Blood Raven is a Kleptomaniac.
Every Ultramarine is a vaguely Greco-Roman Jack-of-All-Stats who follows the Codex Astartes fanatically.
Every Imperial Fist enjoys their own pain and is an expert siege engineer.
Every Salamander is a Scary Black Man, secretly Gentle Giant, with a flamethrower.
Every Raven Guard is a Combat Pragmatist with a jetpack.
Every Space Wolf is a Boisterous Bruiser With A Soft Centre Horny Viking with a fondness for wolves.
Every Dark Angel is The Atoner and sworn to secrecy about their chapter, apart from the ones who they're sworn to secrecy about, who they spend an enormous amount of time and resources hunting down...
Every Grey Knight is Incorruptible Pure Pureness incarnate, psychic, and a religious fanatic whose faith is their chief weapon; and a daemon hunter.
Every Black Templar is, as the name suggests, a religious crusader.
Every Iron Hand is a cyborg Determinator.
Chaos Space Marines:
Every World Eater is an incarnation of Ax-Crazy, and/or a Blood Knight.
Every Emperor's Child is horror with a killer guitar (apart from Fabius Bile, who is a Mad Scientist).
Every Death Guard is an implacable bag of walking filth.
Every sentient Thousand Son is a mad wizard in power armor. The others are all ghosts trapped in Space Marine armor.
Every Iron Warrior is a master siege engineer.
Every Night Lord is a psychotic serial killer akin to a Chaotic Evil Batman.
Every Alpha Legionnaire is an Ambiguously Evil Magnificent Bastard. They are also all Alpharius.
Every Word Bearer is an insane and unrelenting dark priest.
Every Black Legionnaire is out for revenge for the death of Horus.
For Space Marines and Chaos Space Marines, this is largely justified due to the fact that they all share genetic material with the primarch of their chapter - essentially, they have all been deliberately modified to be the same. Plus, most Space Marine chapters are only just north of 1000 members (10 companies of 100, plus command) who are taught similar fighting styles and recruit from one planet (or a handful of similar ones). Anyone who was not, in fact, wearing their hat would probably be questioned as a traitor. Chaos Marines tend to be much more individualistic, but come from the same parentage-of-the-legion situation, as well as many worshipping the Chaos God that closest matches with their... idiom. All berserker warriors who favor close combat and are trained and given access to chain-axes would seem similar enough, but make them more likely to all enjoy martial prowess and chopping off heads? That may as well be a hat breeding program...
Orks:
Every Bad Moon is decked out with flash. And their teef fall out and grow fast.
Every Blood Axe is a sneaky git who likes mimicking the Imperial Guard.
Every Death Skull is a looter.
Every Evil Sun is a speed-freak.
Every Goff is grim and dour and thinks melee combat is Serious Business.
Every Snakebite is a tribal who is Made of Iron.
Tau (technically not a hat for the whole culture, but every caste has a specific purpose, and you're born into your caste, with crossbreeding between castes illegal. To be fair, the ethereals are breeding the perfect warriors, builders, diplomats etc... and even though they've only had a few thousands years, they may even technically be different species by now.)
Every Ethereal is a ruler of some sort.
Every member of the Fire caste is a warrior.
Every member of the Earth caste is a builder/scientist/engineer.
Every member of the Water caste is a bureaucrat/diplomat/politician.
Every member of the Air caste is a pilot/navigator/starship crewmember.
Some of the Tau sept-worlds have specific headgear, too. Everyone from N'dras is brooding, everyone from Ke'l'shan refuses to give up, everyone from Fal'shia is a problem solver and the list goes on and on.
The Imperial Guard:
Everyone from Cadia is immensely proud and are vaguely like the Canadian army or the Mobile Infantry.
Everyone from Krieg is a Death Seeking World War I-era stormtrooper with a Badass Longcoat.
Everyone from Praetoria is a British redcoat, or more specifically, a Zulu extra.
Everyone from Catachan is a tough-as-nails jungle survivalist, and looks an awful lot like Rambo.
Everyone from Valhalla is a Soviet conscript (except those in the 597th, who are closer to modern soldiers).
Everyone from Tallarn is a pious desert warrior who specializes in guerilla warfare. Bedouins, not, well...
Everyone from Atilla is a Space Hun, complete with love of horses (sometimes mechanical).

Shadowrun 3rd edition features a section with members of each of the Five Races giving you a brief introduction to their race. Most of them start by acknowledging their race's hat, then going on to tear it apart as racist bullcrap. Except the dwarf, since their hat is being short.
Dwarves also have a hat of being technical wizkids. The dwarf explaining this has trouble working out how to fix a toaster.
Shadowrun does a good job of deconstructing the hats/stereotypes for each race. For instance, the dwarf states that a lot of dwarves live underground because basement apartments are cheaper and they don't mind the low ceilings. Amusingly enough, the human points out how he's different from the other races by mentioning the other races' hats and stating how Humans don't have any of those.

Warhammer: Within most of the major factions, there are multiple subdivisions and groups with clear-cut regional and factional identities.
The Empire:
All Marienbugers are foppish, arrogant but irritatingly skilled dandies.
Everyone from Nuln is an engineer reeking of blackpowder.
All Reiklanders are skilled marksmen and consummate professional soldiers.
All Middenlanders are hairy barbarians with a liking for blunt weapons.
Hochlanders are accomplished hunters and crack shots with hunting rifles and longbows.
The Skaven are divided between multiple clans, each with a very specific gimmick. Among the four Great Clans, Clan Skryre are crazy techo-magical inventors; Clan Moulder are insane fleshcrafting breeders of monsters; Clan Eshin are cloaked spies and assassins; and Clan Pestilens are fanatical worshipers of plague and decay. Among the numerous minor clans, Clan Mors are regimented militarists with ambitions to Great Clan status, Clan Skab are soldiers with a lot of Stormvermin, Clan Skaar are warpstone miners, Clan Sleekit are underground navigators and sailors, Clan Volkn are a bunch of pyromaniacs, Clan Skurvy are mutinous pirates, Clan Carrion are thieves and scavengers, Clan Ektrik are all obsessed with lightning, Clan Treeeherik are Social Darwinist backstabbers even by the standards of the Skaven, and Clan Vrrrtkin are obsessed with weaponizing poison gas.
Vampire Counts: Before their rework in the 6th-7th edition, each Vampire Count was from one of several bloodlines: Von Carstein (classic Dracula-style vampires, although recently have been modeled to be a lot more bestial), Lahmians (pseudo-Egyptian female vampires. With cats), Blood Dragons (honour-bound martial powerhouses who exist only for combat and proving themselves), Strigoi (horribly deformed ghouls with no link to their humanity at all) and Necrarchs (Nosferatu-like intellectuals who are wizened but terrifyingly powerful when it comes to magic). There were abilities and artifacts that kept these ideas pure for old players, but the terms were put to rest.
Bretonnians are a curious juxtaposition of the lofty ideals of the King Arthur mythos (Knight in Shining Armor, questing for the Grail, fighting monsters) and The Dung Ages (peasants are downtrodden and considered as a sentient animal at best and are used in battles as cannon fodder, the knights themselves tend to be painfully sheltered and their survival in an age of gunpowder is largely due to the protection of the Wood Elves manipulating them as a buffer and a huge mountain range between Bretonnia and the Empire). Oh, and they're also French, with all that implies.

Super Mario Odyssey has a good chunk of areas with its residents in a theme that plays to the architecture, and the purple coin stores will sell clothes that match (which can help you get a few Moons). For a more literal example, Bonneton (also known as the Cap Kingdom), is literally inhabited by sentient hats and have hats as a recurring theme around the level.

In The Demon Princes, there's Sarkovy, the Planet of Poisoners; and Methel, the Planet of Snobs. This is partly explained by the fact that Methel is actually owned by socially elite caste, who take steps to keep others out, not least the Darsh from neighbouring Dar Sai, the Planet of Boors.

On My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic, nearly almost every single sentient species that isn't a pony has a rather one-note culture. All dragons minus Spike are greedy, aggressive and prideful monsters which act with disdain toward weaker creatures (they do have a nobler side, however), all gryphons are money-obssessed, callous and unfriendly jerks who don't get along even among themselves, and all yaks are short-tempered, obnoxious brutes with a rather poor grasp on English, to name some examples.

Doctor Who:
The Time Lords might be described as a planet of very silly hats indeed (look up images some time and try not to giggle). They tend to be portrayed as very Lawful Neutral (with frequent forays into Lawful Stupid) philosophers and scholars who one alien describes as a race of "ancient dusty senators" who were "peaceful to the point of indolence". The Doctor is very much an exception, being more of a Chaotic Good rebel and nonconformist, whom his people barely tolerate (though they sometimes need his help). There is some debate, however, on whether or not "Time Lord" is the same as "person from Gallifrey", and if this applies to the general populace of the planet or just the ruling class.
Justified in the case of both the Daleks and Cybermen, who are created races rather than natural ones. The Daleks are genetically engineered to feel no emotions but hatred and xenophobia, explaining their desire to destroy all non-Dalek life in the universe. The Cybermen have also had their emotions removed, and seek to survive by assimilating other races Borg-style. Their origins vary, however, as the classic series had them as a humanoid race that slowly lost their individuality as they replaced more and more of their bodies with technology, while the new series introduced an Alternate Universe version as the creation of one man, who intentionally removed their emotions so they could cope with the trauma of being "upgraded": they freak out and die if they remember who they are.
Along with these two are the Sontarans, a Proud Warrior Race of clones made to be the best at fighting and conquering any planet that looks at them funny. They are so into the whole warrior thing that their form of punishment is forcing the perpetrator into a job as a nurse.
In "The Doctor Dances", regarding Captain Jack Harkness, the Doctor explains to Rose that in the future, humanity's Hat becomes being more or less everywhere and having sex with more or less anything.
The Ood appear to be a race of slaves, who want to be given orders. It turns out this is due to humans taking over their Hive Mind. The Ood, once freed, turn out to still be a peaceful race.
"Partners in Crime" has a literal reference when Donna is revealing how much she was banking on the Doctor being at Adipose Industries so she could take up that companion offer of his that she'd turned down:
On at least two occasions, the Eleventh Doctor has, shortly after meeting some alien being, announced its species' hat, for expository purposes, apparently without caring about tact. note ("I take it from the pathological compulsion to surrender, you're from Tivoli," and "I love the Kahler. One of the most ingenious races in the galaxy, seriously. They could build a spaceship out of Tupperware and moss.")
"The God Complex" features Gibbis, who is apparently a member of a rather pathetic alien race whose hat is being a Dirty Coward. He mentions being abducted while planting trees along a road... so a conquering army can march in the shade.
This is ultimately revealed to be a planned survival strategy – by being completely non-threatening, indeed actively welcoming to any would-be conquerers, the Tivolians avoid reprisal and annihilation.
The Sarah Jane Adventures introduced the Shansheeth in "Death of the Doctor". They resemble vultures, and their hat is that they're the undertakers of the universe. Sarah Jane didn't buy it at first.

While Vatta's War generally averted this tropes two examples were found. One world Cascadia is a world of tree loving Dogged Nice Guys, while Gretna is a world white supremacists who are also seriously against humods.

The alternate worlds or "planes" in Changing Planes by Ursula K. Le Guin are often like this; each one features a more-or-less humanoid alien race with a special ability, psychological/biological quirk, or universal tradition — such as sharing dreams, seasonal migrations, near-constant anger, becoming silent at adulthood, and extreme devotion to apparently meaningless architectural projects.

Stars Without Number: alien races usually have Lenses, essentially a way of randomly rolling for Hats. You might have a culture with, say, Curiosity and Wrath, or Collectivism and Fear, or Sagacity and Pride, as the defining cultural traits.

The Twelve Colonies of Battlestar Galactica occasionally fall into this, in function if not in populace. Aerilon was the breadbasket of the colonies, and everyone from it is perceived to be some sort of hick (which is why Baltar adopted a more upper class accent-apparently they sound like Yorkshiremen). The Gemenese believe in the literal truth of scripture. Sagittarons are downtrodden, and mad about it. Taurons are stoic and traditional, and have a mafia equivalent (depending on your perspective, they're either Space Mexicans or Space People of the Mediterranean). Capricans have it made - their planet is the center of art, culture, science, and politics. There is, however, no physical look specific to the people of any planet. Hopefully, this means that Single-Biome Planet is avoided.

In Spore, when your race reaches the Space phase, they are assigned a hat based on their actions up until that point, which usually falls into the standard sci-fi racial norms. There's Shaman, Trader, Warrior, Diplomat, Zealot, Scientist, Ecologist, Bard, Knight and Wanderer.
This actually makes a bit of sense: until space-travel, members of a race would have to fill all the economic niches necessary for survival; once there's easy star-travel, specialisation would be possible. See: finding a cheap toy made in the U.S., post-{globalism and Chinese capitalism}.

League of Legends yordles. One of the most distinctive characteristics of this species is that they're relatively kind-hearted and friendly towards everyone. Although this is a justified trope, since social isolation has caused many yordles to go insane or even become evil (as evident with Veigar).

The reverse of this is used in the South Park episode "Cancelled": apparently every planet except Earth has only one species, with "a planet of deer, a planet of Asians," etc. Earth was started billions of years ago with creatures from all over the universe on one planet—-as part of an intergalactic Reality Show.
A previous Marklar of Marklar introduced the Marklar of Marklar. The Marklar used the Marklar "Marklar" for all Marklar. The Marklar spoke otherwise perfect Marklar.

Several races in The Chronicles of Narnia, such as the Dufflepuds, who play Captain Obvious with such astute observations as water is powerfully wetnote Justified in that "the entire race" is one small tribe of (originally) dwarfs who were given to the wizard Coriakin to oversee in order to teach him humility, so their stupidity is presumably a design feature (Coriakin is literally a star, on enforced sabbatical for some fault that Man is not meant to know about)., and the Marsh-wiggles, an entire race of Eeyores.

Played With to Hell and back in 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 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 egalitarian or more authoritarian, 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 or not.

In Stargate Atlantis, the Wraith are a race consisting solely of warriors who live to eat. In the last season, Todd the Wraith mentions that feeding on humans is the driving force in their society with little beyond that. We did finally get a small glimpse of Wraith society in Season 5's "The Queen". Judging from that episode, the entire society is divided into Queens, who seem to spend their time intimidating one another, their male Advisors/Viziers, who seem to specialize in Magnificent Bastardry, and the possibly asexual Drones, whose duties apparently involve patrolling ships and standing guard (not unlike actual Soldier Drones in Bee colonies). All of them are in thrall to a prime Queen (called The Primary in this particular segment shown, but this may not be the case with every Wraith alliance). Exactly where the various Male Wraiths who serve as scientists and field commanders (who are also uniformly errhm, uniformed in leather) fit into this mix is never really shown.

GURPS:
In GURPS Fantasy 2: The Madlands, there is the region of Savringia. Thousands of years previously, two godlike entities decides to have a contest to see which one could create the most unlikely society. So they reduced themselves to energy and used that to create City-states of Hats. Currently there are about 30 but this is subject to change. There are the more ordinary Cities of Merchants, Tradesmen, and Priests, but there are also esoteric ones like Cities of Judges, Spiders, Grays, Silence, and the Fickle.
From the same publisher comes GURPS Aliens and GURPS Fantasy Folk, which also fall under this trope.

The world of Loom is divided into xenophobic guilds, each with a specific craft, e.g. Weavers, Glassmakers, etc. Each guild's citizens seem to all bear the characteristics of their guild. For instance, the glassmakers value traits such as clarity and beauty, and have names like Luscent Bottleblower. Somewhat justified in that the thing that defines them is what their community was formed on in the first place.

A vast majority of the various D-Bees in Rifts fall neatly into this trope. The Simvan are all nomadic warriors with a psychic connection to animals, the Larmac are all lazy, the Naruni are all shrewd businessmen, etc. Occasionally exceptions to this trope will be made in the case of individual NPCs, but the description almost always includes the statement "Unlike most members of X's race..."

The various alien races from Star Control come from different varieties of Planet of Hats. The Spathi are cowardly to the point of paranoia, the Pkunk are hippy-dippy psychics, the Umgah are psychotic practical jokers, the Druuge are slavers, and there are multiple species of Scary Dogmatic Aliens (Ilwrath, Mycon, Ur-Quan Kzer-Za and Kohr-Ah) and Proud Warrior Race Guys (the Thraddash, the Shofixti, and the Yehat).
Subverted in a couple of cases with examples of My Species Doth Protest Too Much; the Vux all find humans utterly disgusting, but Admiral Zex really really likes them, to an uncomfortable degree. We are also told of a group of Spathi who are completely fearless and travel the galaxy performing daring acts. And the Zoq Fot Pik are actually three different races, whose combined hats appear to be bickering, not remembering which of them is which, and Frungy.
The Fan Discontinuity sequel Star Control 3 takes this to strange extremes, with many aliens having unbelievably specific Hats. The Owa, for instance, practice chivalry and know about antimatter science, and you never learn anything else about them.

Paperinik New Adventures has its own examples:
All Evronians are tyrannical and evil Emotion Eaters (to the point a warrant officer commanding a cut-off group of Evronians hoped to find a superior officer to be properly mistreated), with the Imperial Council, the Emperor's subspecies, and rogue members of the high caste being outright Galactic Conquerors and their nicest members being at most Noble Demons and Pragmatic Villains. Justified in that current Evronians are all clones with some modifications depending on their post and job-to the point that Porphioolon, the first known Evronian to be an actual good person, is the result of a low caste technicians messing up the process to artificially grow a high-caste one.
All Xerbians are scientists and hold a doctorate, to the point that when asking if there's a doctor they have to specify they mean a medic.
The entire population of Armadha is in the Private Military Contractors business, either by leading an army of combat robots or manufacturing and selling said robots and anything they need to fight. Justified in that Armadha is extremely poor in resources (even air is scarce), so the only thing they have to export and get what they need to live on their Death World is themselves-and as they're tough enough to live on Armadha and too stubborn to just move somewhere else, becoming mercenary soldiers was the logical choice.

Dragon Ball Z gives us two Planet of Hats races, the Namekians and the Saiyans. Both with justifications:
We are introduced to the Namekian race by Piccolo and God, who were original one person. Everyone in the race is green, reproduce asexually, is one gender (male), have mystical abilities, and is peace-loving with the exception of Piccolo who was the Nameless Namekian's evil side that was corrupted by living on Earth. Part of the reason for the uniformity is that the Namekians we see in the main story, with the exception of the Nameless Namekian, all came from one father after the race was brought to the brink of extinction. Which means any culture or other unique differences would be all but lost since everyone came from the same gene pool and raised by the same person. However, there are still subtypes or 'classes.' There are two castes; the Dragon Caste (consisting of those with magicial abilities and being able to create Dragon Balls i.e. Dende and God) and the Warrior Caste, those who are powerful in combat (Nail.) The reincarnated Piccolo (the now good one) could be considered a hybrid due to being a fusion (but lacks God's ablities of creating the Dragon Balls).
The Saiyans were introduced by Goku. Once Raditz comes we learned that all Saiyans are freaking strong, transform into giant apes under a full moon, are prideful, and are Blood Knights. Goku is unique among his race because he doesn't have the Saiyan bloodlust. This is a combination of being raise on Earth, a head injury, and inheriting his mom's good nature. Part of the justification for the Saiyans is that there were good Saiyans, but they were banished or repressed by the more violent parts of their race. The Saiyans' dark nature was also exploited by Frieza who used them to wipe planets and made them advance too fast so they never evolved past their barbaric ways.

The Jovian Lizards are revealed to be a long forgotten human colony in the orbit of Jupiter that rebelled and became an independent nation after the federation forsook it. The Jovians' hat is that their entire society and culture is based on Gekiganger3, an old Super Robot anime within an anime, which they treat essentially as sacred scripture.

In Titan Maximum, Eris is inhabited solely by rednecks and Mercury by old people. Neptune is a gigantic winter resort, with a lone steam-in-a-can production facility.

The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant
The Haruchai are a race of stoic proud warriors. The Insequent are a race who Walk the Earth in search of knowledge. The Elohim wear an Omniscient Morality License hat. All the Ramen (people from the Plains of Ra, not noodles) care about are their horses. The Stonedownors are obsessed with stone while their cousins the Woodhelvins are obsessed with trees.
And on the evil side of things, the Cavewights are all Axe-Crazy mooks, the ur-viles are enigmatic sorcerers, and the Croyel are parasites who offer faustian bargains. Ravers could also be said to have the hat of nature-hating omnicidal jerkasses, but this is justified by there being only three of them, and the fact that they work directly for the God of Evil.

Every planet featured in The Brothers Flub that Retrograde makes deliveries to are hat planets. i.e. a planet of wrestlers, or a planet that's a giant pinball machine.

In Wander over Yonder, most of the planets are this, like a planet of hillbillies, a planet of Viking sheep-men, a planet of sickeningly sweet happy-go-lucky aliens, and so on and so forth.

In Ashes of the Past all Squirtles, Wartortles, and Blastoise are massive Otakus. It gets tot he point where many of them have fighting styles that emulate thier fandom.
For the record Ash's Squirtle and Gary's Blastoise are fanboys of Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann, the fire fighters call their home the hidden turtle village, and the Sailor Moon Wartortle Quillava runs into during the fishing cotest.

Transformers Cybertron is very guilty of this. There are three planets where a great deal of the action takes place: Gigantion, the giant planet, is populated by massive Transformers obsessed with construction, aided by the tiny Mini-Cons. On Velocitron, the speed planet, the fastest rule and those who don't measure up are left in the dust. And on the unnamed Jungle Planet, might doesn't make right so much as it is right. As if Cybertron, a planet populated by giant transforming robots, wasn't enough of a hat planet in its own right. (Admittedly, "giant transforming robot" is a pretty cool hat.)
Pretty much every non-Transformer alien planet in Transformers: Generation 1 was made of hat. Including earth (our hat is a construction worker's hardhat, everybody wore them).
Likewise, Transformers: The★Headmasters had a planet of humans innately in touch with nature, and a pirate planet.

Babylon 5
The Narn start off as the Proud Warrior Race, the Minbari as Elves, the Vorlons as Mysterious Elders, and the Centauri as the declining Roman Empire. The Narn become Warrior Poets, the Minbari lose all hats due to a civil war, and the Vorlons gain (or rather, reveal) a Law hat. The Shadows also happen to gain the Chaos hat, while the Drazi steal the Proud Warrior Race. The uniformity of the alien cultures compared to humanity is lampshaded in the episode "The Parliament of Dreams," where each of the major races puts on a display of their global religion, while Sinclair arranges dozens upon dozens of people to represent humanity's multitudes of religions (even including a nonreligious atheist). Ultimately humanity's "hat" is explicitly defined (by Delenn) as community-building — humans automatically and unthinkingly weave together disparate groups into communities. The Narns also have more than one religion, but weren't seen to put on a demonstration in "The Parliament of Dreams".
The hats come off slightly as the series goes on. Londo points out that, to be a success in Centauri society, you have to be a schemer; there are plenty who don't, it's just that their families dwindle to insignificance. Delenn points out that both the religious and warrior castes have been ignoring the worker caste since Valen founded the Grey Council, and since they are fairly isolationist, we usually only get to see those who are on government business, who tend to be religious caste (possibly this is just because Delenn is religious), the military (and hence the warrior caste, although Londo does tell Earth Gov that this is not quite the same thing), or the Rangers, who are an elite undercover military force, with the obvious hats.
The Minbari hat is tradition, whichever caste it comes from. This certainly applies to both Delenn and Lennier, though sometimes we get to see Beneath the Mask.
The Abbai's hat is a focus on "community", the Brakiri's hat is business (more corporate culture as an ideal, rather than a Star Trek Ferengi-style "profit", though of course that is their ultimate goal). The Drazi's hat is pretty much "violence" — more specifically, the idea that a brawl pretty much solves any problem. The Llort's hat is basically kleptomania. The Shadows and Vorlons of course proudly promote their hats of "chaos" and "order and obedience" respectively, and try their hardest to make the younger races wear them too.

The early alternate-universe missions in City of Heroes cross this with Underground Monkeys through the re-use of enemy models. You've got the alternate Earth of werewolves, the one where the Corrupt Corporate Executive's project went horribly right, producing a Hive Mind that took over, the one where the psychic-powered clockwork robots took over, etc. They're generally referred to in-game as "enemy group Earth".

This trope dates back to at least The Skylark of Space, the very first Space Opera. It was taken to such an extreme that the heroes would cheerfully commit genocide on species they disapproved of, rather than try to change them.

On Creative Galaxy, the Creative Galaxy that Arty and his friends travel throughout is full of these and this is basically a point of the show. In each installment, Arty visits a different one to help him make art. These include Paperia the paper planet, Fabrictopia the fabric planet and Paintoria the painting planet.
