All right, time for little advice from mr. "had-a-population-nearing-4k-in-my-last-game" ;-)...

You can ALWAYS prevent the clan from splitting. When you get the event, just pick whatever that prevents the event. The farmers want more land? Seize some from a neighbor. Too many weaponthanes? Give gifts to the complainers.

Make sure to keep an eye on your annual food harvest: Always keep it at least 1.5 times higher than necessary, so that bad harvests wont ruin the day.

If there isnt enough land to increase the fields, raid for some. If there arent enough farmers, go to the recruit farmer screen.

Simple, really.

Oh and actually its just me with a 3k population, at least I havent heard anyone else having one. Maybe I'll try to make a record in my next game. I figure it wouldnt be too hard to get a population of 4-6k.
