Way back in March, The Hunger Games Adventures Facebook game launched and promised a map of Panem. It would be our very first official look at how the Districts are placed.

For whatever reason the map hadn’t seen the light of day until now, and game makers have decided to unveil various districts in batches.

Below you can see the official map with the location of three Districts and The Capitol.

Again, this is our first real look at the locations and sizes of the various districts. We’ll be sure to update you when the rest of the map is unlocked.

Thanks to Sarah and Jenna for the tip!

  • Zack

    I’d be underwater :/
    But hopefully we’d move to higher ground when that happened?

  • http://about.me/kyle Kyle

    There’s nothing in Canada..?

    • Laura

      I was thinking the exact same thing. Panem is supposed to be North America not just the US… I guess we’re just a barren wasteland then. 

      • akacj7

        ***SPOILERS for books 2&3***
        maybe district 13 is in canada. for what it may lack in say, arable land (on the whole), it would be good for nuclear tests, far away from the rest of the Panem population. and the underground facility would be perfect during the winter. dont know if the book supports that theory, even by omission, but i kind of like that idea.

    • http://megan-conway.blogspot.com/ Megan Conway

      Technically there is as 4 of the districts continue further north than the picture shows.

      • http://about.me/kyle Kyle

        Still would have been nice to at least include us in North America.

    • canadiano

      no because canada sucks !Just kinding i am canadian my self and the book says NORTH AMERICA so it should be america,canada,mexico oh well .maybe canada and mexico were occupied by other nations

  • http://www.twitter.com/matsemann08 Matsemann08

    I’m looking at some maps online made by the facts in the book. They seem quite accurate with the general position of the capitol, 2, 11 and 12.

  • Boberta

    I feel as though the districts are way to big. Plus as I recall Panem isn’t the entire United States, just the West.

    • 11 cousins

      No … it isn’t just the west it said in the ruins of what was NORTH AMERICA … not to mention the specifically said that district 12 was in the appalachian mountains … which are on the EAST coast … but i do feel like the districts are stretched a little too much they need more space in between them …

  • Nicole

    I put very little store by third-party generated maps like this. 12 is definitely not on the water. I will say so far it seems more accurate than that map of Hogwarts and Hogsmeade in the Harry Potter Wizard’s Collection box set. Yikes. 

    • http://twitter.com/iamboobs Yasemin Turner

      I also wondered about the Hogwarts map….it just doesn’t match what is in the books! And maybe the district boundaries end before the sea?

    • andrewm4930

      Actually, Suzanne Collins did help create this map, so you can consider this official.

  • http://twitter.com/Peril_in_Pink Gina S

    I made a map a while ago just trying to guess where all of the different Districts were, so it’s fun to be able to compare the two and see how close I was. It’s not exactly what I envisioned, but so far I’m pretty close. I think it’s cool that they’re doing this.

  • Luis Daniel

    For those who say that the districts are extense: if you see a map of every nation, you will notice that the center or most important part of the place is far away from the boundaries. They just put terrain that has the name of the district but maybe is not inhabited.

  • Glaciusx

    To those who are doubting this map….Suzanne did help with it. So to me this is accurate. 

  • Jael

    Crud, I think my town would be underwater.  I wonder which District would be the closest to Santa Cruz?

  • HarryHungerAvatar12


    • Plat

       Its under water. Thanks to global warming… :O   haha.

    • applepie

      Haha I’m from Florida too :(

  • Gabi

    I think NY is mostly under water. I wonder which distict will be closest??

  • http://www.facebook.com/crystaldisbrow Crystal Disbrow

    Hmmm…I always had imagined that there was nothing to the west of the capital. And perhaps that it would be further south. I assumed the capital would be closer to where Denver is because it is currently the major downtown city in the area. I’d like to see the outlines o the states and cities as they currently are on top of this map as comparison.

  • Guest

    Hmmm..where would I live? Florida’s gone, so I’d need to move north to district 11 or 12. But I’m originally from the midwest, so I can’t wait to see which districts those are.

  • krislintz

    Oook, well, I guess DC is underwater… 

  • Johanna

    so are all the border areas between districts filled with woods like katniss’?

  • Abbysbully

    I wonder where Utah is I can’t seem to find it

    • Kendraaleigh

       My best guess is Utah is split up with parts of it in the Western Part of the Capitol and then in the two districts immediately west of the Capitol. If the deserts are in about the same place as they are now, then that’s where Utah would be. :)

    • chaelainev

      You do realize that the borders aren’t actual borders from the states right…. utah would obviously be somewhere around where the Capitol is…… 

  • http://twitter.com/taylie27 Taylore Thompson

    District 12 is in North Carolina, that’s appropriate was that planned Lionsgate?

    • Ellie

      No, the book states that District 12 was in the Appalachia area, which is why they filmed in NC

      • http://twitter.com/taylie27 Taylore Thompson

        Yes but the Appalachian Mountain Range stretches from Georgia & Alabama all the way up to Canada. And the main deposits of coal in the Appalachian Mountains are located in western Penn, western Maryland, Western Virginia, West Virginia, southern Ohio, and eastern Kentucky. Hence why I thought it was appropriate and interesting that the filming location and the map location matched up

  • chaelainev

    I’m a little disappointed that it’s only in the states besides the chunk of mexico… what happened to canada? Did it turn into ice lands? Do they have a giant wall and it’s the only thing separating Panem from the Others?? 

    • http://megan-conway.blogspot.com/ Megan Conway

      4 of the districts continue into Canada from the looks of it. Southern Ontario, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, and Alberta are probably still there, but I’m pretty sure most of northern Canada and the Maritime provinces are underwater.

      • chaelainev

        That’s true… I’m curious as to why they cut off the top of the picture in such a place that a district is only half-shown..

  • Kendraaleigh

    The saddest part of this map: both Disneyland AND Disneyworld would be underwater!

  • http://twitter.com/MaireadNguyen Mairead Nguyen

    is it me or do I count FOURTEEN districts on the map?

    • Anon

      13 districts plus the capitol

      • http://twitter.com/MaireadNguyen Mairead Nguyen

         oh god, I totally forgot… this is what happens when you’re sleep deprived… thank you!

  • http://www.facebook.com/nikolausaldrich Nick Aldrich

    One thing that was never explored that I hoped would have been is what’s happening with other countries. I can’t Imagine Europe, Asia, Africa, South America, Australia are all gone. I would have liked to hear about how the world viewed Panem. 

    • potterjay

      Same! Unless they are all equally as bad, I can’t imagine other countries just standing by and letting it all happen, unless there were really good communication blocks

      • http://www.facebook.com/nikolausaldrich Nick Aldrich

        Even if they were as bad, I can’t imagine they were friendly with each other. Just seemed like a slight missed opportunity there. 

      • Duke of Earl Grey

        That’s basically the situation in North Korea. Information is strictly controlled, and the populace thinks they have things relatively good.

    • Savanah

      Maybe something terrible happened within the other continents/countries and the rulers didn’t want to inform the children (including our only real source of information, Katniss)?

      Or maybe it was the exact opposite? Maybe the other countries were WAY better than Panem and they didn’t want everyone figuring out how to leave (giving them too much “hope” as well)?

      • http://www.facebook.com/nikolausaldrich Nick Aldrich

        True, Just think It’s an interesting angle that wasn’t explored. Regardless of what’s happening outside of Panem. Could have been a cool reveal. But oh well. Still enjoy the books a lot.

        • Savanah

          It’d definitely be interesting to hear Suzanne discuss this. I hope that she will some day!

      • Daniel Jackson

         It says in the beginning of the first book that a great war took place and all that was left was Panem.

  • anoymous

    Interesting Iowa is two seperate districts!

  • oh yeah

    District 12 represent!

  • Savanah

    I live on the coastline of North Carolina, so I guess that means I’m gone unless I move to a district.

    Off to District 12!

  • http://twitter.com/emilyecstasyTM Emily Bryan

    I personally prefer this one at cafepress: 
    http://www.cafepress.com/+panem_district_map_wall_art_large_poster,625885925 but that’s just me. I guess this one is a little more ‘official’. That map looks weird to me xD edit; and I also found this one, for those interested: http://shelf-life.ew.com/2012/03/22/hunger-games-a-great-map-of-panem-photo/

  • Gary65

    LOL global warming devastated Florida, the Carolinas, Texas i.e. places that, in modern America, are very Republican and deny the existence of global warming. Poetic justice at work.

    • Jael

       But parts of California, Oregon, Washington state, and several New England states got submerged, and those states range from moderately to very left-wing.  So we can safely say that global warming targets both liberals and conservatives. 

      • Gary65

        Yeah but those states are a lot bigger so there’s prob still a lot more of them there than the others. I mean Florida has been totally annihilated. There’s nothing left :D

        • StarBronze175

          living in Florida I’d have to say were very 50/50. thats why were a big battleground area we go back and forth. but most of us know florida will sink sooner or later,

          • Gary65

            50/50 is putting it lightly. Once you go north of Miami and Orlando, you’re about as southern, backward America as you can get.

    • mlebauer

      It’s a work of fiction. Ironic that you confuse futuristic fantasy with the “settled science” of AGW.

      Also ironic is that the Hunger Games shows the dangers of runaway statist collectivism, like Orwell’s “1984″. Leftists has always desired greater central control and social egalitarianism, while conservatives advocate smaller government and regional autonomy.

  • Ntertanedangel

    One thing that never made sense to me in the books is the way that each district seems to have only one village, and not even big ones at that. I find it hard to believe that all of Northern America has only 13 towns in it, separated by hundreds or thousands of miles, and yet forming one cohesive nation. Was this explained somewhere and I just missed it?

    I actually had this problem with a lot of things in the books: not getting a good feel for where things are situated spatially, socially, or historically. 

    • Dlmarvin05

      all of america had 13 colonies once. history can repeat itself

      • Ntertanedangel

        America had 13 colonies comprised of hundreds of towns, taking up only a fraction of the continent. The way Collins describes the districts and their populations, I would expect Panem to be about the size of New Jersey. Unless the population is waaaaay bigger than the impression I got from the books (and the movie), there is no way that the Capitol would be able to exert control over such a thinly-spread populace, and there is also no way that the people would not be able to slip off from the towns and live in the wild without being caught. There is simply too much land to cover and not enough people to cover it. 

        • daisyduck

          I agree- when I read the books, I imagined we were talking about land about the size of one of the smaller US states. I’m really surprised by this map. In my mind- a lot more land had been submerged/destroyed than this…

        • http://www.facebook.com/rafael.suarez.5055 Rafael Suarez

          I think a lot of things are not explained that could make a difference there. Like what type of catastrophe left North America in such state, if the oceans rose so much, if there was worldwide famine or disease, if human population is dwindling, if there was a major loss of infrastructure like hospitals, universities etc… Who knows, it’s a fantasy, you know the US with 300 million people, there could be as little as 1 million throughout the whole place in the Hunger Games timeline.

  • http://twitter.com/Goslingsawagrin Kyle Jung Mun Lim

    cool Hope its out for the next dvd 

  • kmagryffindor

    Well I tried to do an over lay of a current map of North America over the game map to help people visualize everything. 


    • andy

      So Canada is part of the districts hooray!!! :P

    • Jael

       Thank God Las Vegas survived whatever catastrophes happened.  Not that I’m from there, but I enjoy going there.

      But now that I think of it, whatever happened to Hawaii and Alaska?  Did they get submerged or got lost to history?

    • http://twitter.com/dragonrider713 Nikki

       Looks like my home state of MA didn’t survive. :(

    • Kate

      Alright, I know I am late to the game on publishing here, but can I just say what a shame it is that the pretty part of Oregon got destroyed. lol…. Eastern Oregon is alright, but it has nothing on the Willamette Valley. It also messes up my theory that we are part of the logging/timber district.

  • 1avsfan

    I don’t know whether it’s a good or bad thing that Denver is the capitol, but either way I love Colorado!

  • http://xyue-mayx.deviantart.com/ Dreamer

    Cool, it’s pretty close to what I pictured. my hometown didn’t survive but that’s not too much of a surprise

  • http://about.me/dshana Shana Debusschere

    Is it me, or do I count 14 districts?
    Edit: Oops, I counted the Capitol as well.

  • Rayeofsunshine

    I guess Florida didn’t survive. :( I wish there was a Disney World District. 

  • http://www.facebook.com/patrick.fincutter Patrick Fincutter

    ok. did we ever hear that 12 had a coast. i don’t think so. and she made it seem like each district you could walk from one side to the other in a day and back. i guess i’m a little confused by this. I never thought the districts touched each other thats how the capitol kept a better eye on them.

    • Alison

      There are breaks in between the districts if you look at the map. I never got the impression that you could walk from one side to the other in a day. In the Hunger Games it mentions the Appalachians. It’s not hard to google where those are… I’ve known since 2005 that District 12 was on the East Coast!

      • Zack

        The book came out in 2008.

  • JK448

    I guess I live in District 13…or the wilderness between D 13 and D 12

  • kmagryffindor

    The Districts can be large areas and they move the villages based on work. So there maybe one town in District 12 and they move it every so often as new coal mines open and old close. Its hard to call cause we have no idea how many people live in North America, or the how hard a hit the human population took. That’s because it really didn’t matter for the books story-line. 

  • Heatkarma

    when was the u.s part of mexico? lol makes no sense 

    • Sechsguy

       Panem is supposed to be all of North America not just the US. Read the books.

      • Thegingertribute

        The rest is underwater. Look at the map.

  • Gryffinclaw

    …I live in Alaska? :(

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=607519910 Catherine Lai

    I like how it shows the parts underwater due to sea level rise… this is our future!

    • guest

      not set in stone. 

  • JK448

    So where are the other locations (Districts 1, 3-10, and 13) ? We’ve been looking at the same map since Saturday. When is someone gonna post all the locations ?

  • Elphaba Thropp

    So I live exactly where District 12 is, it looks like…cool.

  • Elletnah

    There are 14 spots… I think they are even going to reveal where 13 is… Nice. It is probably the section above 12. Possibly between 11 and 12 is 8 and I think the part that is part Texas and into mexico is 4

  • http://twitter.com/potterfan92 Raina

    Dang Georgia is under water. I would have been in District 11 :(

  • http://twitter.com/VBBieber Mallory

    I live underwater near district 12… yea

  • Aidan

    Wheres Canada? Or are we just chillin in the north, not giving a shit?

  • JK448

    Okay now…its been three days and we’re still seeing the same 4 locations. Where are the others

  • iTuneUOut

    I live in the Capital! :D 

    Yay for crazy hair and such!!! :D 

  • http://twitter.com/ClaudioCatino CCMASTER_01

    Wow, judging from the size of that place, the US got majorly fucked. Here’s hoping for a prequel book!

  • Rhyswatson

    I thought canada would be panem because there are 13 provinces and back then in 1812 toronto was burned to the ground and 75 years later it was made into canada

  • Morgan

    I know this is the official map, but it’s just plain wrong. District 12 cannot be located there. The most of the coal deposits in in North America are located in southern and Central WV, an area outside of district twelve. From its current location, you would have to travel over a hundred miles to reach a coal mine that produced any worthy amount if coal.

    I’m from WV and have been through the coal fields many times. While lions gate did a good job making NC look like a mining town, in reality, NC is nothing like WV nor does it have any coal mines that I know of.

    • Kate

      actually, if you look at the map, it is in WV. most of NC is under water on this map.

  • Guest

    according to collins, 11 is near Atlanta, GA.

  • Thegingertribute

    It said district twelve was located in once called the ROCKIES. Completely wrong.

    • Bocasaints

      It says the Capital is in the Rockies. It says District 12 is located in the Appalachian Mountians. You are wrong

  • Football16

    this is stupid that the other one isnt unlocked. Fucking stupid. 

  • BOB

    They made Hungry game in N.C my home town and i dont care about anything else :)

  • http://www.facebook.com/honorkat Trish Bergandino

    This map shows 14 districts… There are only 13. Another thing, all the maps I’ve found, to include this one, are automatically incorrect. Everyone is creating them with all the districts side-by-side. The districts are all inclosed with vast amounts of wilderness in between. 12 would not be that big if they are walking from one side to the other either.

  • meeee

    13 has got to be the one above 12.

  • Christopherson

    L.A. is underwater… No more Kardashians!

    there has been an update whats left of California is 4
