15 provinces or districts
The central government’s district is very rich
and delivers food to the other provinces
A past rebellion was put down and the districts were punished by no food deliveries.
They all got hungry and many people starved to death.
The Hunger Games are a cruel reminder to the districts that they must obey or they will go HUNGRY.
Candidates are chosen to participate in the games every year, one from each province.
The protagonist’s small sister is chosen for the games.
