Actually, I've had time to think about it, and galaxy really is the only description I can provide them. They are collections of stars, black holes, and rocks which are not gravitationally affected by one another. If something of the sort existed in the real skies, the scientific community would probably call them something like "Dwarf Galaxies," "Micro-galaxies," or some other diminuitive "Galaxies." It's hard to say, really. Much of the physics behind Super Mario Galaxy is wacky anyways.
King K. Rool is, in fact, behind the plot of DKC Returns No reason behind this theory. Just seems like the sort of crazy shit he'd do.
That assumption has apparently spread so far people quote it as fact. After looking up a scan of the manual, I've found what Mario actually says in the preface:
"While I was away crusading against the mystery alien Tatanga in Sarasa Land, an evil creep took over my castle and put the people of Mario Land under his control with a magic spell. This intruder goes by the name of Wario. He has been jealous of my popularity ever since we were boys, and has tried to steal my castle many times. It seems he has succeeded this time.
Wario has scattered the 6 Golden Coins from my castle all over Mario Land. These Golden Coins are guarded by those under Wario's spell. Without these coins, we can't get into the castle to deal with Wario. We must collect the 6 coins, attack Wario in the castle, and save everybody!
IT'S TIME TO SET OUT ON OUR MISSION!"
^ Nowhere in there does Mario mention anything about Wario paying off Tatanga to keep him distracted.

Mario Wiki's answer is as follows, so this may shed some light on why everyone jumps to that conclusion. =/
The fact that he is guarding one of the six coins at all hints that Tatanga may have been working for Wario the entire time, and that his kidnapping of Princess Daisy was a means of distracting Mario specifically so Wario could take over his castle, though this is unconfirmed.
Well, I never thought I'd post here, but being drunk sure makes the crazy gears in one's mind turn, so here a DK based on:
DK and Prince K. Rool used to be friends in their teenage years, hanging out and doing teenage stuff, like drinking, being popular and getting dates. One day DK and K. Rool are wasted on Banana Liquor, and DK decided to pull a prank on K. Rool, so he takes a piss on his left eye. The acid levels of his piss burns his eye and causes it to permanently rupture his eye, making it swollen. Losing his princely beauty, he swears revenge on his old buddy and Bananas.
Nester the Lark: Also, I know YL isn't into speedruns, but he might be interested to know that RPG Limit Break is having a Gust marathon all weekend, including several Atelier games.

nocturnal YL: Ah… Bad timing. I didn't read this until now, when it's almost over.

Nester the Lark: Well, if you're still interested, they'll be uploading the replays to their YouTube channel later this week.

Shrikeswind: I like that Mayles put her back in her kneepads. What's the last game they were in? One of the Kongas? It was a good look for her, albeit very 90's.

Shrikeswind: The jokes call to me, their siren song a temptation I can hardly bear, yet I must stay my tongue. Confound my dirty sense of humor.

Nester the Lark: The replies I see to anything Nintendo posts on Twitter are probably an indication as to why they abandoned Miiverse and decided that social media should be someone else's responsibility.

nocturnal YL: As mentioned in Twitter, I'm currently playing Atelier Meruru DX. I'm thinking about writing reviews for the Arland series afterwards, as well as making a second Nintendo Switch review video after I finish either this or my next game.

Nester the Lark: ^ I would be interested in seeing your reviews of the Arland games.

Nester the Lark: So, there's been Hyrule Warriors and Fire Emblem Warriors. But guys, how about this: Punch-out Warriors! It's like Punch-out, but you fight all of your opponents at once!

Shrikeswind: Sounds punchy, but unless it's a real knock-out I don't think it'd be a hit.
