 Are people from Slovenia called Slovenes or Slovenians?
Decision: Lists "Slovene" first (as person or language) and "Slovenian" as a derivative (noun or adjective.) Other dictionaries seem to follow this convention: Both Merriam-Webster and the American Heritage Dictionary list "Slovene" as their primary entry.
slovenian sounds clunky and illiterate to me :) incidentally, there's another school of thought on this matter that your post doesn't seem to mention...it relates to serb/serbian and croat/croatian (but not slovak/slovakian, which seems to be the same as slovene/slovenian, and slovak seems to be much more preferred).

You say, "The list I've made is not meant to extol so called communist area, but to distinguish between some non-human persons." This statement alone displays POV and opinion even though you claim otherwise, and, as I've said in a previous post, you show partiality and prepossession.
