There are in the correct alphabetical order by country. That user is probably suggesting them being in order by denonym, making Congolese and Burmese in the wrong spot.

Imagine my surprise at discovering that the people of Kiribati are not called Gilbertese (per JetPunk)! I think that's the proper English demonym (as opposed to I-Kiribati in the local language, which is ... Gilbertese!).

How about one for deimonym "ian" of countries? Iranian, Belgian, Canadian, Peruvian... it could potentially be quite hard!

In addition to the interesting ones you mentioned that somewhat unexpectedly add "ian" suffix though, there would be a good number of less interesting countries whose name ends in "ia" already in such a list.

I tried Sri Lanka for Sinhalese, but it didn't work. After, I looked up Sinhalese and it turns out they're a group of people in Sri Lanka, but not the entire population. The more you know!

Ironically, this is also one of the quizzes where the other type-in (Congo) is much more useful, seeing as it gives you two answers in one! 🤣

Nepal's demonym is Nepali. Nepalese is used for the language and for some official matters, but nothing more. Here's a source if you're curious.
