The capital of Panam has control over all of these aspects of government, They would use the power of the media to broadcast the Hunger Games and demonstrate the power that they held over Panam. The Capitol has complete control over the military and an all embracing idiology of the Hunger Games themselves. It is a reminder of the 12 district's failed rebellion during the Dark Days. Their absolute control over the military allows them to enforce martial law. Their all embracing ideology is the Hunger Games itself. The tessare's are an example of control of the economy. They enforce laws with their Peacekeepers. And finally, the lavish and fake lifestyle that the people in the capital live is almost like a cult itself. They are trapped in their own little world.
