It's been exactly one year since peace was declared between the warring districts of Panem. For one year, districts have been rebuilding and the Capitol is distributing food, resources, and aid across this nation. For one year, a new kind of force has been trained, Peacekeepers, with the goal of providing justice and security to the districts. Today, Panem is marked by peace and hope, as we grow better than we were before.
On this year anniversary, Panem must pay the price for its peace and growing prosperity. The 1st Annual Hunger Games are about to begin.
President Wilhelm Ash reminds citizens that, like was decreed on the Day of Peace, one girl and one boy from every district shall be reaped to compete in The Hunger Games. One victor shall be crowned, and as a reward, the victor and their district will receive gifts from the Capitol. These Games, held yearly, are a reminder to all of the Dark Days before us, the generosity of the Capitol, and the hope of the future ahead of us.
No one wants to return to the Dark Days - a decade-long war of fighting a dictatorship, of brother against brother, of destruction and death. Everyone in the country has lost someone to the fighting, and any remaining rebels will be shown no mercy. Peace and prosperity has a price, and the citizens of Panem are willing to pay it.
Will you be a tribute in the 1st Annual Hunger Games? Or will you fight to protect Panem in this new force, the Peacekeepers? Will you rebuild your home, and help your neighbors rebuild? Or will you settle into your new life in the Capitol as a reward to your family for your great service in battle?
Who will you be in Panem Today?

It's where Peacekeepers are recruited, trained, and where weapons are manufactured for them to use, but it originally specialized only in mining and stone cutting.

It has 52 active hubs with a population of 784,453, making it the largest district in Panem, in terms of population. Due to being the largest district in terms of population, it is also extremely unstable, making Morphling a district-wide problem.
A middle-class district which provides lumber for the Capitol, and its people are known to be good with axes. District 7 is apparently covered with large portions of forest and has a dam nearby the district. Most citizens from District 7 begin working with axes at an early age, probably in the forests that surround the district, chopping down the trees for their district's industry.
