People from Djibouti are called Djiboutian according to Wikipedia. I thought it would be kinda weird for a country, a capital and the people to all share the exact same name. Nice quiz though.

Djibouti's national anthem is also called 'Djibouti' lol they are the most imaginative nation in the world!

You should change it to Djiboutian. Djibouti may have a lot of similar names but you can't blame them; their country was founded in 1977 and do you know how long it would take to chance a country name or song title? The country is corrupt enough with a president going a few extra terms. Abdi Robleh was probably just told to make a national anthem and he had no time. Nice quiz, though.

If you accept Slovene, Pole, Turk, Croat, Slovak, and Slovene, you should also accept both Serb and Bosniak as those 2 terms have similar ethnic meanings as the terms I mentioned above.

Argentinian is the correct spelling, not Argentinean. Argentine should also be accepted. Botswanan should be accepted. Ecuadorean is the correct spelling, not Ecuadorian. It's Maldivian, not Maldivan. Vanuatuan should be accepted.

vaticanian is not the correct demonym; there's technically no demonym for the vatican, but the one I've seen used the most is just Vatican.
