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 of Side 2, 3, 5, 6, and 7.
In U.C. 0223 the Congress of Settlement Nations was suffering from food shortages. Meanwhile Sides 1, 4, and the Lunar cities, had formed the Settlement Freedom League and the neutral Side 8 (Gaia) remained untouched by CONSENT. When it was discovered Side 8 had developed an enzyme that could potentially solve the food shortages, the CONSENT leaders decide to sabotage it to continue the selective starvation of the citizens of the Sides.
