Hey y'all. there was one thing that really has been on my mind since reading the HG, Katniss keeps calling them 'Districts' put aren't they in fact Cities? Which leads me to believe... how big are these cities/districts and if the location was America some long time ago then how much of it is Panem?

What do you think? Are the districts cities or just areas?

I thought the districts were more like states :/ And Panem is a country..

right so no cities yes counties/states?? I personally don't think they're as big as the states in th US, doing the Victor Tour would have taken a lot longer then no?

I think that they are more the size of big cities, but are more like states. If that made any sense...

Yes. Panem is the country. Panem is like the U.S. The districts are the states. They aren't as big as states but they are still like them. So Panem is the U.S. and the districts are the states inside of it.

Does anyone think Panem is the only country, cos i think we clarified now that Panem is a country, but could it be the only country on earth???

Woah, maybe. And since Panem is a pretty small country, it's a possibility that it could be Alaska or something :/ Or even in Europe...
