Weapons are mentioned many times in The Hunger Games trilogy and used by many characters, especially during the actual Hunger Games event. At the beginning of every Games, weapons are among the principle supplies found at the Cornucopiaand are initially acquired during the bloodbath. Tributes who do not obtain weapons at this stage must then acquire them later, either from the Conucopia itself if any remain and the horn is unguardedor from another tribute by theft or killing. As a result, weapons tend to change hands as the Games go on.
It is situated primarily in North America, and the Capitol is located in an area formerly known as the Rocky Mountainsas it states in the first book of The Hunger Games trilogy.
Panem was run by an authoritarian-totalitarian dictatorship that was led by President Snow before the second rebellion.
It is portrayed in the trilogy to be the dominant society in North America, and no other nations or civilized societies beyond Panem have been mentioned, so it is unknown if any exist at all.
Panem was later led by Commander Paylor after the war. The phrase itself is used to describe entertainment used to distract public attention from more important matters.
Furthermore, by the government providing ample food and entertainment, the citizens would give up their political rights. In Panem, the law is harshly enforced: After the Dark Daysa sadistic annual event known as the Hunger Games was established as a warning reminder of the past.
According to the Capitol, Panem has a population of 4, people. However, adding up the known populations of the Capitol and 12 districts gives it a total of only 1, people. Not much is known about the exact locations of Hunger games catching fire districts, other than the fact that District 12 is located in the Appalachia.
The size of the country is known not to be as large as North America today, given that, according to Katniss, large areas of land across the world were flooded by rising sea level. An unspecified time before the current date, the face of the Earth changed and modern civilization was seemingly destroyed.
It is unknown precisely what caused the "end of the world," but major landmasses changed shape as the sea level rose to unknown heights around the planet, hinting that North America became smaller and presumably the only inhabited landmass on Earth.
Some time after the end of the world as we knew it, a nation was established in North America that would soon come to be known as Panem. Its exact method of expansion is unknown; it is possible that some of the separate districts may have even once been smaller, separate nations that were eventually annexed by Panem.
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 diedbut by the end of the conflict, the Capitol had quelled the rebellion, defeating twelve of the districts and obliterating the thirteenth entirely.
The Games In the wake of the rebellion, the Capitol established the Hunger Games, an annual event in which twenty-four children between the ages of twelve and eighteen, one boy and one girl from each district, are chosen from a lottery and entered into a gladiatorial competition where they must fight each other to the death until only one remains standing.
The event served two purposes. The first was to demonstrate the overwhelming power the Capitol had over the districts by taking their children by force and forcing them to slay each other in a no-rules competition. The second purpose was purely for entertainment. The Hunger Games are a nationally televised event in the same vein as a reality show, its tributes practically considered celebrities and the events themselves dramatized and glorified.

During the Quarter Quell, in which past victors were reaped into the games, Katniss shot an arrow attached to a piece of wire, which was connected to a tree, into an imperfection in the force field surrounding the arena.
The tree is then struck by lightning, which causes the force field to malfunction and stop working. She was rescued and transported to District 13, which had been rebuilt as an underground city-sized bunker before being bombed during the Dark Days.
Beetee and Finnick are also rescued. Peeta, Johannaand Enobaria are captured and held by the Capitol. In an attempt to end the rebellion, the Capitol destroyed District 12, echoing the faked destruction of District 13 during the first rebellion.
As requested, Katniss Everdeen was to kill President Snow. However, in the heat of the moment, Katniss killed Coin and Snow died from what is rumored to of been from either suffocation or because of choking on his own blood.

Districts The nation of Panem was separated into a total of thirteen nation-states known as districts, twelve of which are recognized as operational by the Capitol, and each being responsible for producing, procuring, or refining goods in a particular industry as dictated by the Capitol.
All of the districts are subject to the unrelenting will of the authoritarian Capitol, and have no known influence concerning the national politics of Panem beyond their own individual territories.
The districts barely interact with each other since it was illegal, so each district generally has a unique culture unaffected by the other districts.
