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?

The door creaked as Jake pushed it open gently. It was still too early for Aurelia to be awake at six in the morning, and he hadn't meant to stay out so late. He'd gotten off at midnight, but instead of going home, he wandered the streets aimlessly for hours before going to gym. He worked on the punching bag for hours before his body finally failed him. Then he laid in the hot tub, letting his muscles relax and his eyes close. It wasn't until he heard the cleaners coming in that he woke up. By the time he left the gym, the sun was rising. Aurelia would either be still sleeping, or waiting up for him.
The door knob clicked and he turned the lock, every movement sounded so loud in the quiet apartment. He had taken his boots off outside, and tiptoed through the living room. There was no noise as he peaked inside the bedroom, Aurelia was in bed.
He wondered if she had gotten up in the middle of the night to welcome him home, or if she stayed up late to wait for him. Maybe he got lucky and she'd slept the entire night. Carefully, he picked up the blanket on his side of the bed and slid in. The mattress dipped as his weight settled into the bed. He laid there for a few moments, his eyes on her back, watching the slow rhythmic movements of get breathing. Then he inched closer to her and wrapped his arms around her waist. He buried his face into her hair and the back of her neck. His body conformed perfectly against hers.
