Dutch people are from The Netherlands, also known as Holland or the low countries.
The one exception to this are the "Pennsylvania Dutch," because that name came from a misinterpretation of the word "deutsch," which means German. So Pennsylvania Dutch people are from Germany. All the rest of the Dutch are from Holland.
They generally don't prefer Dutch. Most "Dutch" people refer to their country as themselves as 'Nederlanders' for the people and 'Nederlands' for the language. Since Dutch (the language) is 'Nederlands' in Dutch and the people are 'Nederlanders' in Dutch. Another reason to call them like this is to avoid confusion with the Germans and the German language (Deutsch). They also generally don't prefer that the country is called 'Holland' or that the people are called 'Hollanders' and that the language is called 'Hollands'. Since that's not correct and is more an offensive.
The Kingdom of the Netherlands is the name of the country where Dutch is spoken. Specifically, Dutch is the official and most widely spoken language there. But the people of the Netherlands tend to be multilingual. So Dutch isn't the only language that the country's people know. In fact, it isn't unusual for people in the Netherlands to know English, French, German, Italian or Spanish in addition to their own language!
The Netherlands, like the country name of Holland, uses the proper adjective Dutch. The word Dutch can also be the plural collective noun for people in or from the Netherlands : the Dutch.The adjective is "Dutch," as in this sentence: "I love the people in The Netherlands, but I cannot bear the Dutch weather."Dutch is the adjective form, but it is also a proper noun used as the collective plural demonym, i.e the Dutch is synonymous with the Dutch people. There is no singular of the demonym noun in English.
