I'm trying to do some research for some people in the SEO and data marketing industry.

I'm flat broke so I don't have money to spend but I would love to find a database that's free that just has the Country and all its cities or at least major cities and their recent population.

Country population can be retrieived from (API available): http://api.population.io

City/Country population can be found here: https://www.citypopulation.de


The UN report The World’s Cities in 2018 lists every world city with a population of over 1 million people.

World Population Review lists many cities, including cities with populations under 1 million. You would need to go through each letter of the alphabet to get them all.
