You can use the groupby function along with the agg function to calculate the sum of each row in the multiindex groups and append it at the bottom using concat function. Here is an example code snippet:

import pandas as pd

# create a sample multiindex dataframe
data = {'Country': ['USA', 'USA', 'Canada', 'Canada'],
        'City': ['New York', 'Los Angeles', 'Toronto', 'Montreal'],
        'Population': [8_336_817, 3_979_576, 2_731_571, 1_704_694]}
df = pd.DataFrame(data).set_index(['Country', 'City'])

# group by the Country index and calculate the sum of rows
group = df.groupby(level=0).agg('sum')

# append the sum rows at the bottom of the grouped dataframe
result = pd.concat([df, group.assign(City='Total').set_index('City', append=True)])


Country City                      
USA     New York           8336817
        Los Angeles        3979576
        Total             12386393
Canada  Toronto            2731571
        Montreal           1704694
        Total              4436265
