Superstalemate: A chess challenge

Challenge: Find a legal chess position in which one player is stalemated, and in which the stalemated player would still not have any legal moves, even if the rules were changed to make it legal to move your king into check, or otherwise leave your king in check.

I don’t think this is a very hard puzzle, though you may initially be surprised that such positions exist. I’ll put a solution in the next post.
