I saw this map in one of the answers to another SE question:
And it got me thinking that if Panem is divided into 13 Districts and the Capitol, then where are the Arenas located? Since Hunger Games have been taken place 75 times after the Dark Days then there must have been atleast 75 Arenas located all over Panem (assuming that a new Arena has been used every year for the entertainment of the Capitol citizens which I'm not quite sure about).
So are the Arenas located
- somewhere outside the Districts and the Capitol but still inside Panem?
- somewhere inside the vast uninhabited regions of the Districts?
- somewhere entirely outside Panem?
And if it is #1 then what sort of control the Capitol has over the (presumably) uninhabited regions? Also, are there any such regions in Panem?
