Hunger Games In a nation called Panem, which exists in the land once known as North America,

there are 12 districts. Previously there were 13, but because of the start of a revolt against

the Capital, the 13th district was eliminated. Because of this attempted revolt the Capital

represent their district and fight against the other tributes from the other districts, sending

one male, and one female. Being entered into the Games could mean untold fortune, and

Everdeen, and the main male character Peeta Mellark are the two tributes from

District 12.

the book it takes place in District 12, and in District 12 is where they mine the coal for

all the other districts, and that explains why there is a layer of soot, and coal dust, which

makes it a very unhealthy place to live, breathing in all the soot, and coal dust cant be

good for your lungs.

Later, in the book most of the action or main plot setting takes place in an arena

somewhere in side the Capital. Each year the Hunger Games are held in different arenas

meaning different environments this year the arena contains lakes, streams, caves,

wooden areas, and a wide open field where Katniss and the other tributes are afraid to

enter, because there are land mines everywhere and one false step could basically end
