Nice quiz though.
Jew should be acceptable for Israel. As should Israelite.
Bangladesh as a name just means "Bengali Country" in Bengali.
Maybe include Persian for Iranian.
Include St Lucian for Saint Lucian.
Maybe Lao would work for Laos?
either include or not: Lao, Ghanan, Irani/Persian, Surinamer, Madagascan, Israelite(as Israeli already works, show both answers)
change Djibouti to Djiboutian
above are all legitimate.
don’t include Brit(somewhat offensive), Turk(may be confusing)
(I did enjoy the quiz, by the way, thank you!)
Should accept Swazi and Lao
Papua New Guinea
Nice quiz. I enjoyed it.
I'd also like to see a different version, with stuff like, Dane, Finn, Irishman, etc.
It'd probably make sense to cut out all the easy ones with >80%, but this makes for a fun feature.
I found swazi or swati as a demonym for Eswatini, please re-check and add if valid. Thanks!
Following your example at the top, a citizen of Rome is a Roman. A citizen of Finland is a Finn, not a Finnish. And a citizen of the UK is not 'a British'.
I feel less strongly on this point since it is a dated term, but Byelorussian should maybe be accepted for Belarusian since that was the English demonym for many decades, within living memory.
There were also some like where both forms are accepted and shown. I think for countries where they differ, that would be the best thing to do. So Spaniard/Spanish and so on.
Answers to add: Equatorial Guinean, Salvadorian/Salvadorean, Swazi, Habesha for Ethiopia, Finn, Swede, Pole, Brit(on), Turk, Gabonaise, Hellenic/Hellene for Greek, Catracho/a for Honduras, Magyar for Hungary, Kazakhstani, Kirg(h)iz and Kyrgyzstani, Lao(s), Lett(ish) for Latvia, Malinese, Slovak, Slovene, Monacan, Mongol, Netherlander, Banyarwanda, Serb, Surinamer, Formosan for Taiwan, Tajikistani, Uzbekistani, Emiri(an),
Madagascan and Vaticanian (debatable)
Gilbertese is actually the language not the demonym
Slovak is the official demonym not Slovakian.
You can check on wikipedia as well.
Also would recommend stating in the description that is adjectival demonyms only (that way you wont get loads of people trying to change the quiz in the comments)
