The Industrial Consortium, or CONIN, is an alliance of Corporations, industries and companies, which had as goals to defend the interests of the members of the CONIN, to control, limit and shape the market, and to do lobby and pressure groups in nations, to avoid measures to be taken against the CONIN and their member states, being founded at the 3367 a.a.H.
