I need a list of all the city squares in a country. Does anyone know how to search for it? Thanks!

It depends on what you consider a "city square". Most plazas are likely tagged as highway=pedestrian areas, but it isn't clear if that's what you're looking for.

Get yourself a country extract and search for objects with

highway=pedestrian and (area=yes and/or type=multipolygon) and name is not empty

According to the tool you use the exact syntax will change. You can find documentation of suitable tools in the osm wiki, e.g. Osmosis, osmfilter, or use an online service like overpass.
