I am curious if there is a known position with the largest material imbalance that, no matter who it is to move, the weaker side can hold a draw.

    @BrianTowers It's fine to say it's uninteresting, but it's not really fair to say that something similar "may" have been asked. If it has, mark the duplicate; otherwise, assume he's looked. – D M Jan 15 '19 at 1:17

One side with fully promoted pawns and all his material and the other side having nothing but his king. Just stalemate the king in the corner with a bishop, knight and rook, place your other material to block off checkmates and you have a forced stalemate.
