The Andorian state was call the "Andorian Empire" so I assume it was a monarchy.
But did it keep that name after joining the UFP? According to Mike Sussman's Archer bio screen from "In a Mirror, Darkly," what was formerly called the Andorian Imperial Guard was later called simply the Andorian Guard. That implies the Empire dissolved into the Federation upon joining.
Well, we do know from Andor: Paradigm that they kept the Empty Throne after Federation Membership, so it's entirely plausible that the Andorian state continued to be called an "empire" even if it was such only in a ceremonial, constitutional monarchy sense.
