I just wanted to point out the Spanish word "Estadaunidenses" which is a real word (unlike "United Statians") but is the same thing (rather than "Americanos" which is almost never used to mean people from the USA).
United Statians are cool.
People born in Mexico are Mexicans, in Canada, Canadians, France, French...People born in the United States are "Americans". All people born in North and South America, which are continents, are "Americans" - United Statians would be better suited to describe someone born in the United States.
People born in Mexico are Mexicans...People born in the United States are United Statians - both are "Americans"
People from Saoudi Arabia are Saoudis. Not arabians or arabs.
America is a continent, not a country.
Latin america already calls them that.
Every kid in Canadia is confused whenever they hear Americans on the television, until their parents tell them United Statians have an ego( that only Kanye West, coincidently another United Statian, rivals) so enormous that they have to take the name of the entire continent they live in.

George: Dear, those damned United Statians make me wish we lost world war II after all.
Clara: Their ego is probably causing global warming.
Samantha: They don't even realize that the higher IQ States vote for democrats and lower IQ ones vote for republicans, how can they be so proud of a nation that most of the time is run by stupidity?
Laurence: Want some more weed, George?
George: Sure. And let's get back to what we were doing earlier, lets not forget men in Canadia get at least three cultured and hot women to do their bidding.
Women: As you wish, my lord!
Ermanno: Esos americanos son estúpidos.
Alejandro: ¡También es! Tiene que decir: estadounidenses. ¡Pendejo!
Rodriguez: ¡Carabra! ¡Arriba Riba! ¡Tekila!
A polemical term used to describe people from the United States of America. For historic and cultural reasons, people from the States refer to themselves as "Americans", whereas in all of Latin America, the word "américano" refers to anyone from the Americas. Therefore Latin Americans refer to people from the States as "estadounidenses" (United Statians) rather than "americanos".
Due to Americans obliviousness of this issue of transcendence in Latin America, a Chilean group has even written a song that describes American mentality when thinking of Latin America. It is entitled: “Latin America is a town south of the United States.”
Many Latin Americans would like to change the English term "American" to "United Statian" and the word "American" to refer of all people from the Americas (North, South and Central). It is an issue heatedly discussed in many forums on the internet.
Nick: Why do Latin Americans want to call us United Statians?
Jen: I think they´ve got a bit of an inferiority complex, I´ve never had a Canadian challenge my definition of "American".
