Details and caveats:

By city proper when possible, according to Wikipedia, WorldAtlas, and GeoNames are backup sources

Some countries don't have cities, just municipalities. In those cases, we go by the municipality population.

When no reliable source has a sufficient number of cities listed, any city listed by the source will work

Because of lack of good data, Costa Rica, Fiji, and South Africa are by urban area
