The Spanish National Republic was a small state in the southeastern territory of the former Kingdom of Spain. Formed from the Junta of Murcia, was gaining power at the expense of other neighboring juntas. He managed to maintain their independence from the attempts of Pais del Oro to absorb it. But the state, organized in the manner of the franquist dictatorship was unpopular and after the death of its last Caudillo (leader) fell into a period of instability (compounded by the Sicilian raids and gangs inside the peninsula) that forced the mission of the League of Nations to intervene and take control over the port and naval base at Cartagena.
From this intervention it was opened to a new fast process of democratization and integration in economic and military structures of Pais de Oro. The supporters of unification were gaining strength and a referendum over the unification has been agreed between the governments of both countries by June 2010 (following the example of the Kingdom of Cleveland). Since the referendum of June 21st 2010, the state has become a part of the Republic of Spain, together with Pais del Oro.
In early 1985, amid the chaos of the evacuation of Peninsular forces, several army commanders linked to groups of conservatives and Falangists refuses the evacuation order. One of these groups, after wandering around the south of the Peninsula trying to create a government managed to capture the city of Albacete in 1988 from where they launched an attack on Murcia, and based on much violence they able to impose a draconian order in the territory, population exhausted by hunger, disease and disorders surrendered without much resistance. The state was organized under a only-party system, individual liberties were suspended, the population was forced to collective works of sanitation, reconstruction and recycling, fertile women were locked in fortified clinics. The Republic established a strict policy of isolation.
In 1992 PdOr sent a detachment to Almeria, with the purpose of establishing a land base for future expansion on the Peninsula, t he Army of the Republic responded by attacking Almeria and forcing the withdrawal of the detachment. This victory fueled the nationalist propaganda of the leaders Falangists, but otherwise revealed to the opponents of the regime that there was another Spain beyond the seas could assert their rights and this led them to start a clandestine approach to PdOr. To prevent a future invasion the Republic's government strengthened coastal defenses, which was a mistake, because he had to move troops from the interior, leaving the northern border unguarded, circumstance that was seized by bandits and guerrillas.
After the death of Narciso Perales Herrero on 18 June 1994, succeeded him as "Caudillo" Sigfredo Hillers de Luque, who initiated an approach to Sicily.
War of the Alboran Sea
Hillers was killed by a sniper in 2003, sparking a riot in Cartagena, Elche and Orihuela while various groups within the government disputed the succession. PdOr seized the opportunity and took sides in favor of the insurgents occupying Cartagena. The Sicilians sent a dispatch last militarily occupied the island of Ibiza between 2004 and 2006, from where they launched further attacks on Pama de Mallorca and Cartagena. Because of these attacks Pais del Oro could not conquer Murcia or advance beyond the coast. Unable to end the war by itself PdOr had to seek the assistance of other military forces. The Celtic Alliance, Portugal, Chile, the RUAS and the Rif responded positively by sending troops with which they could compel the government of Murcia to capitulate. It formed a transitional government (headed by the historian and former Spanish minister of Culture Ricardo de la Cierva) and Cartagena was the basis of the allied forces (and later in 2008 under the administration of the LoN, who settled there a legation of the WCRB). A successful military operation was an encouragement to the formation of the ADC.
Since 2007 the laws and regulations of the Republic which had been based on the Franquist Order have been progressively repealed, allowing freedom of expression, association and press. The office of Caudillo as Head of State has not been abolished, but remains vacant. The civil and criminal code, however remains the same as under the fascist regime, although with appropriate corrections. The state organization is centralized type, until 2008 - when it convened the first municipal elections - the mayors were appointed by the Government.
The League of Nations controls the port and city of Cartagena, a major industrial center, the shipyards are being repaired. Not far from the city is an important mining district of La Union, which concentrates lead mines, silver, iron and zinc. In the plain of Almeria and Murcia are maintained at the expense of many efforts an intensive cultivation in greenhouses.
The Spanish Republic was a member of the League of Nations.
