If you only have a dataset with the sub-population observations, you don't need to use any special "sub-pop" command, in SPSS or in anything else. I would just do it unweighted, and then weighted with regular (probability) weights, and then by the "survey round weights sum to 1" method, and compare the three. If they are similar, you should be fine (and they will probably all be similar).

Also - "country specific variable?" I thought you only had one country.
