The book the Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins takes place on a country named Panem. Panem was a country that after being terrorized by vague disasters arose from the ashes of North America. The setting of this book can also be described as post-apocalyptic, and takes place in the future. In the book Panem is located on the 12 district which was formerly located in the region of Appalachia.
