How come Princess Peach, a human, is the regent of the Mushroom Kingdom, which seems to be an ethno-state of almost entirely mushroom people. I want to know about the political marriages that led to this situation

I've been trying to figure out the geopolitical situation of Mario's world for a while now.
The Goombas seem to be an overthrown and subjugated nation, the Yoshis are a native tribal society that the Mushroom Kingdom pretends to respect but constantly mistreats, the Bob-Ombs are surprisingly democratic when peaceful but overly inclined to wage war for no reason, Bowser is the leader of a dictatorial nearby nation-state that has radicalist support from some marginalized minorities in the Mushroom Kingdom's borders. The Shy Guys are definitely
a paramilitary organization beholden to nobody.
The fact that Odyssey proves that Peach (although perhaps not Mario) is likely a native of the Metro Kingdom halfway across the world clearly factors in, but I'm not sure how.
