Michiganian is actually the correct way to refer to someone from Michigan, although most not from Michigan use Michigander. I have to admit that it rolls off the tongue better to say Michigander, although it sounds kind of rustic and makes us sound like geese (gander is a word that means "male goose.")

Good question(s). Interesting answers:

Alabaman or Alabamian? Both are used
New Jerseyan or New Jerseyite? New Jerseyans HATE the term New Jerseyite, although both are listed in the Merriam-Webster dictionary
Michiganite or Michigander? I've always been told that it’s either one, but since Ryan's from that state, I'll let him be the authority.
Arizonan or Arizonian? Both are used
