0007322: Cities with animals but no civilizations
Some cities (hamlets and fortresses) may end up devoid of all sentient beings, but full of domesticated farm animals. They don't count as abandoned, but have no owners or parent civs, similarly to sites taken over by beasts.
Cities that end up with absolutely no population may still have owners and parent civs.

Similar thing happens to necromancer towers that can be devoid of necromancers and full of zombies.

Related (possibly the same) issue: sites can have prisoners without any members of own civilization. The presence of a prisoner automatically grants the site an owner and a parent civ.
Generate a world with low pop cap, but high site and civ caps.
