There truly is nothing more splendid than our Capitol, the greatest city in the world. The seat of our national government and home of the esteemed and beneficent President Snow, the father of Panem. Capitol City, commonly referred to as "The Capitol," is the crown jewel of our magnificent country. (Visit The Capitol virtually here.)
Nestled in the mountains, the City resides in the heart of our nation. Capitol City proper, and it's greater metropolitan area, has an estimated population of 5.6 million, making it the largest urban center of Panem.
All branches of the Central Party, as well as all Ministries of the Supreme National Government, are located in the Capitol, as are most of the nation's monuments and museums, colosseums, and shopping centers. The Capitol is also the primary financial center for the country, as well as the home to the Central Capitol Bank.
The Capitol boasts a thriving theater and arts community, the cultural heart of the nation. It boasts over 50 different theaters, 12 museums, 96 music venues, 3 stadiums, countless nightclubs, the nation's motion picture industry, 400 salons, and 600 gourmet restaurants. The Capitol is also the nation's Fashion Mecca. The world-class designers and stylists of Panem are based in the Upper West Side's fashion district.
