Welcome to Panem
Coriolanus Snow rose to power under suspicious circumstances and armed with an affability and charisma that belied his manipulative demagoguery and dangerous arrogance. Now that he is President, his totalitarian tendencies are on display, and it's already starting to lead the nation of Panem toward a system in which the Capitol lives in luxury while the people of every District live in fear and struggle to survive, isolated from each other and the rest of the world.
But we can still stop this from happening. Like a mockingjay surviving against the odds, there is a rebellion determined to resist the rise of tyranny. Please join us in chronicling every small step the Capitol takes toward this dark but very possible future, and learn how you can help this movement, even from all the way in your District.
May the odds be ever in our favor!
