The Congress of Settlement Nations (aka CONSENT or simply the Congress) is a faction in the Universal Century timeline and is one of two successors to the Earth Federation in U.C. 0218. CONSENT controls the space colonies (now referred to as Settlements) of Side 2, 3, 5, 6, and 7.

History

As one of two successors to the Federation, the Congress of Settlement Nations serves as the governing body of the Earth, as well as several Settlements, particularly those with weak agricultural capabilities.

In U.C. 0223, the CONSENT was suffering from a global food shortage. Meanwhile Sides 1, 4, and the Lunar cities, had formed the Settlement Freedom League and the neutral Settlement of Side 8 (Gaea) remained untouched by CONSENT. The president refused to take any aggressive actions, however this was viewed by the Congressional Armed Forces (CAF), the right-wing CONSENT military, as impotence.

When it was discovered that Hydro-Gen and Dr. Riva's research had developed an enzyme that could potentially solve the food crisis, CONSENT military leaders decide to suppress the discovery to continue the selective starvation of the citizens of the Sides. As a result, Dr. Riva is assassinated and the media is told that the research is useless. However when Cynthia Graves retrieves a sample from Hydro-Gen and returns to Gaea with it, the CAF is sent to attack Gaea and recapture the sample.

Following their defeat and end of its military aggression against Side 8, colonies still under CONSENT control began to panic. In a bid to reassert CONSENT's control over these colonies, as well as regain control in the Earth Sphere, Bais Bashing, a confidant of the now deceased General Garneaux, plotted a coup d'état within CONSENT, viewing the current government as weak. To achieve this end, Bais began Project Raven, a development project of autonomous mobile weapons, to increase CONSENT's military strength and force the colonies into submission. At the same time, he also deployed the Gremly Sheep unit. In U.C. 0224, Illuminati responded to this potential threat by coordinating with their earthbound allies, and sent the Lightning Squad to stop it.

By the end of this operation, the Gremly Sheep is defeated and the power balance within the CONSENT is restored. Shortly after, CONSENT dissolves, returning autonomy to the parts of the Earth Sphere it once controlled.
