Best Answer

The setting of the book 'The Hunger Games' is in a post-apocalyptic North America by the name of Panem.

At the beginning, Katniss, which is the main female protagonist, lives in District 12 until later she travels to the Capitol to compete in the annual Hunger Games. The Capitol is estimated to be in the Rockies, while District 12 is in Appalachia. After several days in the Capitol, they travel to the Arena where the actual Games take place. Collins never tells us where exactly the arenas are built, but some have guessed maybe Canada.

The Hunger games is set in a country called Panem which was formerly the United States. This is set 100's to 1000's of years in the future. The smaller-scale setings are district 12, the Capitol, and the Arena.
