I think the problem, Hide, is that you assume that GM Fiat is incapable of providing fair and ethical outcomes. If GM Fiat can't ever be trusted, we ought to come to the natural conclusion that no GM is fit for the role of GM. This kind of reasoning is self-defeating and part of why I just don't quite get where you're coming from with this.
Sadly this "GM Fiat can't ever be trusted" goes back to too many stories of DMs getting into them vs players.

Doesn't help that Dungeonland and Through the Magic Mirror have every native an insane kill happy lunatic. I have no idea where that comes from as at best only the Queen of Hearts and Jabberwocky are out to kill and even the Queen is mitigated by the King.

Just because they are insane doesn't mean they are all effectively Joker Jr.
