Mockingjay is a work of fiction by Suzanne Collins that takes place in a dystopia (an imperfect world) called Panem that is run by a Capitol that oversees 12 districts. The districts have rebelled, and Panem is at war. The time period is unclear, only that Panem is formed sometime in the distant future from our present time, after North America has been destroyed. As for a complete and detailed summary, please visit eNotes' Essentials on Mockingjay for the in-depth answers to these questions (the link is below).
