“You mean ‘lopping off heads to pay your upkeep?’ You’re welcome.” Me thinks the Jillian doth overestimate her economic importance. Since the court feels that they could survive as a bubble side without her, (they're probably right considering they were surviving before she was popped,) then she probably isn't paying an extremely large amount of their upkeep. (I'd be surprised if Jillian was making much more than the cost of those warlords and Gwiffons she was with. Armies are typically very expensive to maintain.) We might be able to get a better idea of the true economic situation in Faq by watching to see what the Moneymancer thinks of Jillian.
The idea Jillian thought of last issue, choose a known small side to topple over, was probably better than either of these plans. Finding an isolated, unoccupied, capital site to become Faq's new hiding place has a low chance of success (depending on the economics, she might have to find replacements for Otoh and Kibo as well,) and, as others have said here, Haffaton is well resourced enough to have the heir and secondary capital site required to survive Jillian's presented plan.
You have to like how Banhammer requests that Jillian "swear to uphold the ideals of Faq after I am gone" and then considers abandoning those ideals within the same update. (Judging by the casters' reactions to the statement, not giving them orders to croak enemies is something they thought of as an ideal of Faq.)
It is interesting that Jillian, warlord extraordinaire, lists off Haffaton's assets casters first.

I think it is likely a misspelling of King.
