Banhammer has expicitly been stated as still being the king of FaQ, despite they having no cities left. Another proof that a side is not defined by having a capital or not.

Banhammer is not a ruler like Slately or Stanley who has limited understanding of his casters' abilities - he will know how far his casters can get him regarding support. I bet Olive regrets letting the thinkamancer die, though.
Stanley had a bigger understanding of his casters than most other rulers so far. He ordered tri-mancer links to gain massive tactical advantages, saved up big money by recycling his warlords, he even made sure the garrison's poop was used for creating more troops.
Oh, and also going forward with massive magic projects like summoning the perfect warlord while
cuting up costs by filling in with his mancers instead of paying the outrageous casting fees of the Magic Kingdom.
Compare with Don, who is managing to drive himself into bankrupcy despite having a moneymancer.
Compare with Banhammer, who's nothing more than a puppet in Marie's hands (make no mistake on who's actually pulling FAQ's strings all this time until their demise at Stanley's hands), that is, when not falling heads over heels for enemy mancers. At least Stanley knows to be extra-suspicious of enemies adept at mind games like Charlie.
