At a specific zoom level in my Tilemill map, I want to only show capital cities, and hide all other cities.

What data set could I use which will provide me with information oh whether a city is a capital city or not, so that I can hide/show based on that attribute?

    You could argue that the Tilemill and Mapbox tags aren't necessary since your question is really about the datasets only Commented Jun 17, 2014 at 0:01

Using the Natural Earth populated places file, you can filter on [ADM0CAP=1] to style only cities that are capitals of countries.
