Who is Participating?
lots of different possible ways, but they all come down to one basic idea.

the capital must be stored somewhere with state as an identifying characteristic.

That could be XML with state nodes and capital attributes
state nodes with capital subnodes

relational tables with states and capital child tables
or a single table

the last option is probably the simplest and might look something like this...

select state, capital from state_table
where state in ('Alabama','Washington','California')
