The Republic of Andalus, commonly referred to simply as the Jamahiriya (Beidar: al-Jamāhīrīyah, "state of the masses") was the successor state of the Andalusian Confederation. Following the dramatic evacuation of the Andalusian mainland by counter-insurgency forces in 1948, the General People's Congress (GPC), headed by Faisal al-Malik, adopted the "Establishment of a Greater Andalusian Republic" and proclaimed the Andalusian Republic on March 21st, 1948.
A socialist state, it survived from its proclamation in 1948, to its dissolution as a result of the Andalusian referendum in 1982. It consisted of a union of several subnational republics, and it's government was highly centralized. The Republic was a one party state from 1948 to 1970, under the Andalusian Social Democratic Labour Party before democratic reforms led to the first national elections.
