panem was built from the ruins of north america but odly when they describ it its mstly in canada ruins= apocolypse which i think means lots of mutts and maybe a fall out game または to Xd add me if u wanna talk it over
I always assumed that the majority of the world was totally decimated によって whatever disaster caused Panem to rise. Maybe Suzanne Collins could explore this as a sequal to the Hunger Games Trilogy, Hmm? I'd read it, for sures.
I think the countries were in such peril as Panem was, that they had to look out for themselves. I would like to believe parts of Asia and ヨーロッパ would have survived, considering I think the ocean waters engulfed a lot of land causing all the morphing of continents. Panem could probably have contacted other countries, but they could barely provide for themselves and potentially adding in another country would be too dangerous of a risk for them. As I 発言しました before, I believe the other surviving countries are struggling to keep themselves alive as Panem is, which is probably why they have no need to contact each other. They need to stabilize themselves before potentially taking on another country. I could go on ALL 日 about this, but I'll stop while I feel I'm ahead(:
I'd like to think that us Europeans stuck together and were unable to help Panem because their government felt threatened によって our democracy. The UK has also conveniently shifted over into the Mediterranean and is now a warm island paradise :)
I always thought that when the natural disasters started, many Governments fell, that the people of those countries fled to North America, where then a great war broke out over probably the largest continent left (Considering that the official map of Panem shows it to be about the same size and shape as North America is now, which also explains the nuclear wars mentioned) I then imagine as how small nations are formed (The 13 Districts) and Panem's empire grows as they take over each District(Which also explains why the Capitol [The original "Panem"] is very rich). I imagine there are still other country's in the world, but they're either too primitive in technology または Panem threatens them as to keep contact away from other districts.
