Faq consisted of a capital (apparently of the same name) and two subordinate cities. It was surrounded with mountains on all sides and accessible only by air and tunnel.Erf-b1-p082
Although the kingdom had mines and farms it also sent its units to do mercenary work with gwiffon squads to boost the treasury.Erf-b1-p082 Apparently Jillian assumed command over them after she popped up and was able to reach a relatively high level as a result of her combat experience.
Reliance on Magic
When enemy units appeared nearby, Foolamancer was able to veil one city at a time (as determined by PredictamancerErf-b1-p107) and thus managed to keep the location of Faq hidden for a long time. That, however, has not saved Faq from destruction.
Fall of Faq
Jillian Zamussels received a "frantic message about about a large overflight of dwagons". The next day she became a barbarianErf-b1-p083.
Jillian never returned to Faq since. According to her the cities of Faq were never claimed. Potentially it can be rebuilt by Jillian to restore her side and become an Ruler and a Queen.Erf-b1-p083
Wanda Firebaugh later tells Parson of her role in the fall of FaqErf-b1-p147. She lured Stanley to Faq, hoping that he would be defeated and she could take the Arkenhammer from him. However, Stanley ultimately won the battle, and Wanda and Faq's Foolamancer Jack Snipe joined his side.
Wanda, the Predictamacer
(Wanda Firebaugh), a master-class Croakamancer originally from FaqErf-b1-p083.
It is speculated that Wanda originally served as the predictamancer of Faq. This theory is supported by the fact that Faq did not participate in any wars and therefore had no use for a croakamancer, nor any croaked bodies for her magic practice. Wanda is also known to be very adept in other classes of magicErf-b1-p013.
Except for these indirect derivations there is no further support for this theory. Wanda also has never practiced predictamancy in the strip.
Fall of Faq
Readers are led to believe that Faq has fallen in a quick attack from Stanley the Plaid. Yet this was never definitely confirmed in the strip.
A popular theory claims that this happened because Wanda betrayed her kingdom in order to get the Arkenpliers. Often the presumptive attack is thought to be the "special mission" during which the revolt of the gobwins in Gobwin Knob happened and King Saline IV was croaked.
Another - unlikely - theory claims that Faq was destroyed by Jetstone. This theory assumes that Wanda once possed the Arkenpliers and Ansom stole them, based on their talk when they metErf-b1-p121. A third theory states that Faq was never destroyed and King Banhammer just got rid of Jillian.
Yet there is much room for further speculation.
