The Government in the hunger games isn’t as unreal as you might think. After all, some of our governments today are just like it. There are a couple of ways that the governments in present day and in The Hunger Games are controlling the people who live there. The governments have many systems of keeping themselves in power. These methods can also be used to keep the people living with them from rebelling. They can control the media and education, communication, keep people at odds with each other, control people's movements, keep people tired and hungry, and make sure people are afraid of them. They can do this in many different ways.
