The Spanish State is integrated by 17 autonomous communities and 2 autonomous cities, both groups being the highest or first-order administrative division in the country as its mentioned in Spain regions map. Autonomous regions are integrated by provinces, of which there are 50 in total, and in turn, provinces are integrated by municipalities. In Catalonia, two additional divisions exist, the comarques (sing. comarca) and the vegueries (sing. vegueria) both of which have administrative powers; comarques being aggregations of municipalities, and the vegueries being aggregations of comarques. The concept of a comarca exists in all autonomous communities, however, unlike Catalonia, these are merely historical or geographical subdivisions.
Autonomous communities or Spain regions are the first level administrative division in the country. These were created after the 1979 and current constitution came into effect in recognition of the right to self-government to the "nationalities and regions of Spain". Autonomous communities were to be integrated by adjacent provinces with common historial, cultural, and economical traits as you can see in Spain regions map. This territorial organization, based on devolution, is known in Spain as the "State of Autonomies".
The basic institutional law of each autonomous region is the Statute of Autonomy as its shown in Spain regions map. The Statutes of Autonomy establish the name of the community according to its historical identity, the limits of their territories, the name and organization of the institutions of government and the rights they enjoy according the constitution. The autonomous communities have wide legislative and executive autonomy, with their own parliaments and regional governments. The distribution of powers may be different for every community, as laid out in their Statutes of Autonomy, since devolution was intended to be asymmetrical.

The political form of government of Spain is a parliamentary monarchy, that is, a social representative, democratic, constitutional monarchy in which the Monarch is the head of state and the Prime Minister — whose official title is "president of the Government" — is the head of government as its mentioned in Spain political map. Executive power is exercised by "The Government". Legislative power is vested in the Cortes Generales (General Courts), a bicameral parliament constituted by the Congress of Deputies and the Senate. The judiciary is independent of the executive and the legislature, administering justice on behalf of the King by several judges and magistrates. The Supreme Court of Spain is the highest court in the nation, with jurisdiction in all Spanish territories, superior to all in all affairs, except in constitutional matters, which are competence of the Constitutional Court.
Spain political system is a multi-party system as you can see in Spain political map, but since the 1990s, two parties have been predominant in politics, the Spanish Socialist Workers Party (PSOE) and the People Party. Regional parties, mainly the Basque Nationalist Party (EAJ-PNV) from the Basque Country, and Convergence and Union (CiU) and the Socialists Party of Catalonia (PSC) from Catalonia, have also played key roles in Spanish politics. Members of the Congress of Deputies are selected through proportional representation, and the Executive Government is to be formed by the party or coalition that has the confidence of the Congress, usually the party with the largest number of seats.
The Law of Political Parties of 1978 provides them with public funding whose quantity is based on the number of seats held in the Cortes Generales and the number of votes received. Since the mid 1980s two parties dominate the national political landscape in Spain as its shown in Spain political map: the Spanish Socialist Workers Party (Spanish: Partido Socialista Obrero Español) and the People Party (Spanish: Partido Popular). The Spanish Socialist Workers Party (PSOE) is a social-democrat center-left political party. It was founded in 1879 by Pablo Iglesias, at the beginning as a Marxist party for the workers' class, which later evolved towards social-democracy.

Autonomous communities are integrated by states (provincias), which serve as the territorial building blocks for the former. In turn, states are integrated by municipalities (municipios) as its mentioned in Spain states map. The existence of these two subdivisions is guaranteed and protected by the constitution, not necessarily by the Statutes of Autonomy themselves. Municipalities are granted autonomy to manage their internal affairs, and states are the territorial divisions designed to carry out the activities of the State.
The current Spain fifty-state structure is based—with minor changes—on the one created in 1833 by Javier de Burgos. The communities of Asturias, Cantabria, La Rioja, the Balearic Islands, Madrid, Murcia and Navarre as its shown in Spain states map, having been granted autonomy as single provinces for historical reasons, are counted as states as well.
For each Spain state, the capital city is given, together with an indication of the autonomous community to which it belongs and a link to a list of municipalities in the state as you can see in Spain states map. The names of the states and their capitals are ordered alphabetically according to the form in which they appear in the main Wikipedia articles describing them. Where they have different forms in one or other of the official languages of Spain, these forma are also indicated in subsequent alphabetical order.
