    Panem

    Located on what once was North America, Panem is the post-apocalyptic country where "The Hunger Games" takes place. The nation is divided into 12 districts, controlled from the country's Capitol by the all-powerful President Snow.

    Each year, to remind citizens of the Capitol's power and as punishment for a previous rebellion, one male and one female "tribute" (ages 12-18) from each district is chosen by lottery to compete in the Hunger Games, a battle-to-the-death televised before the entire nation. All the citizens of Panem are required to watch.
