I suggest contacting the Marble developers directly, I think it might use OpenStreetMap for part of this. [email protected].

Our city database is imported from geonames.org. We run a population filter that includes only larger cities ('large' depends on the device, more on the Desktop, less in the mobile version). Some cities have a missing/incorrect population number in geonames.org and are therefore missing, others are too small.

I think you're able to correct data in http://www.geonames.org directly. Note that we don't re-import their data regularly, so give us a call if you modify data that might affect Marble.
