    Legal/illegal/impossible isn't the point.

    I'm pretty sure the position can be arrived at via legal moves. Just let the Black Queen into the first rank to wipe out White's pieces, except the Queen, whilst the White King waits somewhere off of the first rank. Similarly, let White's Queen wipe out all of Black's pieces except a Knight. Allow the Queens to be captured. Bring White's King back behind his Pawns. Then lock up the Pawns into the final configuration.

    Stockfish gives waiting moves 1... Kd7, ... Ke7, ... Kf7, ... Kf6 and ... Ke5 as mate in 9 moves. 1 ... Nf5 is mate in 11.

    Looks to me like White is totally won, even with Black to move.  He's going to be up about eight queens in a minute.
