AbstractThe so-called “Autonomic State” (Estado Autonómico or Estado de las Autonomías) is a state made up of Comunidades Autónomas or Autonomous Communities (ACs). This autonomic state was envisaged in Spain’s 1978 democratic Constitution, following a general cross-party political and social consensus reached after the demise of General Francisco Franco’s dictatorship. As a consequence, it has implied the creation and accommodation of 17 regions and nationalities by way of an extensive decentralization of powers and responsibilities and constitutional recognition of regional self-rule and cultural diversity. The existence of different languages, political traditions, distinct civil-law traditions, peculiar ways of financing governments in some ACs, and insular conditions of others was recognized in the 1978 Constitution.
