Panem is the future ruins of North America. Panem is divided up into 12 districts, and the Capitol, which is where the wealthy live. It is stated in the book that there used to be a 13th district, but President Snow said they blew it up because the district attempted to rebel against the Capitol. Panem is the setting for The Hunger Games.
