Facts of Panem Location North America Inhabitants People of Panem Appearances The Hunger Games, Catching Fire, Mockingjay Mentioned N/A
In the novel The Hunger Games, at an unspecified time in the future, the nation of "Panem" has risen from the ashes of a post-apocalyptic North America. Panem's seat of power is a utopian city, called "The Capitol," located in the Rocky Mountains. Outside of the Capitol, the nation is divided into twelve districts under the hegemony of an authoritarian, totalitarian dictatorship, headed by the tyrannical and cruel dictator President Coriolanus Snow. A pre-novel thirteenth district once existed but was destroyed by the Capitol 74 years before the beginning of The Hunger Games narrative during a national rebellion called the Dark Days. However, in Mockingjay, it is revealed that the thirteenth district retreated underground after a brutal rebellion that ultimately failed. This was the main source of the rebellion that happened in Catching Fire and Mockingjay. The Capitol developed the Hunger Games as an annual event to punish the citizens of Panem for their rebellion and to remind citizens of consequences for rebelling against the absolute power of the Capitol. The country of Panem, though based after North America, isn't as big as the actual North America due to some countries being underwater due to rising sea levels as a result of global warming.As revealed in the novel Mockingjay, the name Panem comes from the Latin phrase "Panem et Circenses" which means "bread and circuses.

Seventy-four years before the events of The Hunger Games trilogy, the various districts of Panem rebelled against the Capitol, primarily due to the oppressive fashion in which the Capitol government ruled over the districts. It is unknown how long the rebellion lasted or the exact number of casualties on either side (although the Capitol claims that for every dead Capitol citizen, two rebels died), but by the end of the conflict, the Capitol had quelled the rebellion, defeating twelve of the districts and obliterating the thirteenth entirely.
For 75 Long years after the Dark days , The Capitol ordered the hunger games . For 1 Male and 1 Female to risk there life in the Hunger Games . They would Take 24 of Them from 12 Districts to fight to there Death while the Whole Panem Watched just because The Districts fought towards the Capitol
