It is not known when the Brikjian people settled on the Brikjian Isle. The Brikjians are divided into three groups: Ajbrikjians, Saljbrikjians, and Consians.
Greeks settled on Consi around 690 BC and integrated the native Brikjians into their society. The Greeks were then conquered by the Empire of Carthage. Consi and the Brikjian Isle has been conquered by the Romans, Byzantines, and the Normans (Kingdom of Sicily). In 1692 the Sicilians were driven out and the Brikjian Kingdom was founded. This kingdom existed until it was taken over by the French during the Napoleonic wars. The Brikjian Isle came under British control after the 1814 Treaty of Paris. After 32 years of British rule, the Brikjians revolted creating the Second Kingdom of Brikjia. The state fell apart in 1852 because of ethnic tension between Ajbrikjians (meaning Brikjians of the north) and the Saljbrikjians (meaning Brikjians of the south) and war broke out. A third ethnic group, the Consians, sided with the Saljbrikjians in the conflict. At the end of the 3 year conflict, the Kingdom of Ajbrikjia held the areas that would later become Consi. Under the Kingdom of Ajbrikjia, ethnic Consians were discriminated against making tensions rise. The stage was set for war.
On May 8, 1911 Consi declared its independence from Ajbrikjia and fought a two year war to achieve this. Consi was finally recognized internationally on January 28, 1913. As World War I broke out one year later, Consi was neutral for the entire war. Ajbrikjia attacked Consi in 1921, but the outnumbered Consian army overpowered the Ajbrikjians using superior tactics. In the early months the Ajbrikjian capital, Reaoe, was surrounded. In the bloody 48 hour revolution, the monarchy government was overthrown and a democratic government was installed. In 1922, in the Olto Agreement, Consi, Saljbrikjia and Ajbrikjia agreed to end all hostilities with each other, and the return of parts of the Aderlil mountains back to the control of Consi.
At the beginning of World War II Consi was annexed by Italy. A resistance named the Free Consian Army arose soon after the occupation began. The group attempted an uprising in late 1942 which had initial success until the Germans came and crushed the resistance. The allies invaded in July 1943 and liberated Consi and the rest of the Brikjian Isle. Consi was used afterward as an airbase for bomber missions into Axis occupied territories of Europe. Consi also sent troops to help with the liberation of Europe. As the Cold War emerged Consi allied itself with western nations and joined NATO in 1953. On May Day of 1965 communist militants from the group the Consi National Liberation Front (CNLF) bombed the Consian parliament building. The group was operational for almost five years, and most notorious for the bombing of the West German and American embassies, and the massacre of 30 Consian Army personnel and 17 civilians at the barracks of the 1st Mechanized Infantry Battalion. The group dispersed in 1970 after the leader and several prominent officials were killed.
In 2004 Consi joined the European Union and adopted the Euro in 2007. Consi joined the Lego Nations in 2008.
Consi is a semi-presidential representative democratic republic, in which a president and prime minister share the power. The president and prime minister both serve four year terms (up for re-election in 2011).
