Unique and Unusual Demonyms

Can you name all (maybe) unique demonyms? Source from Wikipedia
Some countries which ends in ch or k might be considered the same demonym, but for my sake I still added them in
Some countries have multiple demonyms where one or two of them are unique
Any Demonym ending/adding in "I" are considered the same. Example Kuwaiti and Qatari but there are some exceptions
2 answers ends in "ois" but considering there is only two I still added them in

Some changes-

1. Spain was removed as it ended in "ish" which also appears in British, Finnish, Swedish, etc.

2. Tajikistan was added

3. Any other changes you think should be added? reply to this comment with suggestions

Some might say Liechtenstein and New Zealand have the same demonym as both the country ends in "er" but for New Zealand I added Kiwi so there is no other country with the demonym other than Liechtenstein. Some still would argue that Luxembourg demonym might also be Luxembourger though that is fairly unknown compared to Luxembourgish.
