"District 1 makes the luxury goods that decorate and
beautify our great Capitol. Its excellent taste and
craftsmanship keep Capitol residents bewigged and
bedazzled year-round."
―Description of District 1 from The Hunger Games:
Tribute Guide
[src]

District 1 is one of the wealthiest districts of Panem. Its
primary industry is manufacturing luxury items for the
Capitol and as a result, has a generally favorable
relationship with the Capitol. These luxuries include
diamonds and other precious gems, such as emeralds and
sapphires. It seems that parents from District 1 name their
children after precious items and their attributes, such as
Glimmer and Marvel, which may be a reflection on their
"glamorous" nature. Children in District 1 almost always
seem to take pride in competing in the Hunger Games, and
are among the group of tributes that band together to pick
off the weaker contestants, known as Careers. On the
Victory Tour, Katniss Everdeen mentioned that she felt
uneasy going into District 1, as she killed both of the
District's tributes in the 74th Hunger Games. Katniss also
notes how their costumes in the chariot rides are always
the best and how ridiculous the District names are for their
children.
Jobs
The following jobs are offered in District 1:
 Perfumer

The tributes from District 1 are Careers. Careers train hard for the Games and volunteer
to compete as tributes. They are usually overconfident, like most of the Careers, but this
does not matter for them, for they are so well trained, that they can immediately change
their attitude if needed. There are only 5 known tributes from District 1.
 District 1 female (50th HG) - Killed when her own axe ricocheted off of the
forcefield when Haymitch dodged it, and split her skull. She placed second in the
50th Hunger Games.
 Glimmer - Female tribute in the 74th Hunger Games. She died of tracker jacker
stings from an attack started by Katniss. She placed 12th in the novel and 11th in
the movie.
 Marvel - Male tribute in the 74th Hunger Games. He died from an arrow shot at
him by Katniss. He placed 8th in the 74th Hunger Games.
 Cashmere - Female tribute in the 75th Hunger Games, victor of the 64th Hunger
Games, and the sister of Gloss. Johanna Mason killed her with an axe to her
chest. She placed 10th in the 75th Hunger Games.
 Gloss - Male tribute in the 75th Hunger Games and victor of the 63rd Hunger
Games, consecutive to his sister Cashmere. Katniss killed him with an arrow to
his chest (film). He placed 11th in the 75th Hunger Games.
Trivia
 Cashmere was the only tribute from District 1 that wasn't killed by Katniss in the
Games she was in, but also the only known District 1 tribute not to be directly
killed by a tribute from District 12.
 It is mentioned that District 1 has a machine that can turn graphite into diamonds.
 All the known tributes from District 1 had luxurious names, as District 1 is the
luxury District. Marvel means to be filled with awe, Glimmer means to glow faintly,
Gloss could be deceptively attractive appearance and/or bright sheen, and
Cashmere is one of the most expensive fabrics in the world.
 Despite its favorable relationship with the Capitol, District 1 still rebelled against
its rule during the second rebellion, and was one of the first four to do so, along
with Districts 3, 8, and 11. District 1 was the 2nd - 4th District to pry from Capitol
rule and eventually, they became the fourth District to do so.
 Katniss Everdeen killed both the male tributes in her Games after they killed one
of her allies; Marvel killed Rue and Gloss killed Wiress.
 District 1, District 5 and District 9 are the only districts without a known rebel.
 According to the CapitolPN, District 1 has 82 factories in operation with a
population of 24,315, making it the ninth largest District, in terms of population.
 According to the Capitol.PN, District 1 claims 1,693 in tesserae, less than any
other District, making it the richest in Panem.
 It is considered a wealthy District.
 According to the Panem map in The Hunger Games Adventures, District 1 is
located to the north of the Capitol. It is also presumed that District 1 is located in
the states of Montana, Wyoming and Idaho. These states especially Montana are
known have a large variety of gemstones and sapphires.

"Our nation would be nothing without District 2's
superb stonework. It builds and fortifies our cities
and its citizens are known individually for their
strength."
―Description from The Hunger Games: Tribute
Guide
[src]

District 2 is one of the thirteen Districts of Panem. Its
main industry is masonry. It is one of the largest and
wealthiest Districts of Panem. Furthermore, they train their
children ready for The Hunger Games each year, and the
tributes from District 2 are known as Career Tributes, as
they train their whole life to compete in the Games. It's
where most Peacekeepers are recruited and trained and
where weapons are manufactured, but it originally
specialized only in mining and stone cutting. Publicly it's
presented as the nation's stone quarries, just as District
13 was known for graphite mining. After the first rebellion,
District 2 was rewarded with better treatment and living
conditions for their citizens because of its loyalty to the
Capitol. It is in the Rocky Mountains, near the Capitol
itself. The District is made up of many small villages, each
one based around a mine. Although they get preferential
treatment from the Capitol, the quarry workers suffer as
much as any other District, and the District as a whole is
not excluded from the annual Hunger Games.

hoverplanes, were housed in a large mountain previously used for mining in the middle
of District 2. Train tracks from the mountain lead into District 2's square. After the
mountain was thoroughly mined, the internal infrastructure was reinforced and barracks,
arsenals, computer terminals, and meeting rooms were constructed, turning the
mountain into a military base and the Capitol's main source of weapons production after
losing District 13. After Plutarch Heavensbee described it as "a tough nut to crack,"
Katniss Everdeen relayed this remark to the rebel leadership of District 2, resulting in the
mountain being nicknamed the "Nut."
[1]
Numerous rebel attempts to capture the
entrances were defeated as these had been designed to be near impervious to attack,
resulting in a stalemate.
However Gale Hawthorne noticed avalanche paths on the side of the mountain and
realized that an alternative to capturing the Nut would be to disable it. Boggs realized
from examining the Nut's blueprints that its ventilation system was its weak point, as
these would be blocked up by avalanches. Beetee suggested leaving the train tunnel to
the square open as the only means of escape, which Gale was against, as he was
seeking retribution for the fire Bombing of District 12. It was decided to leave the tunnel
intact to give the survivors a chance to surrender, but anticipating that the escapees
would be armed and desperate, the rebels fortified the buildings surrounding the square
with machine gun nests. When the Nut was bombed by rebellion hovercrafts, the
resulting avalanches shut off many entrances and air vents. The survivors did not initially
escape through the tunnel, but suddenly rushed two trains into the station when Katniss
started to broadcast an appeal to surrender. After she tried to convince an injured soldier
to surrender and was shot, the District 2 workers who had escaped turned on the
soldiers, allowing the rebels to stand by and watch.
Known tributes

District 2 Tributes, 74th Hunger Games
District 2 children are raised with a warrior mindset in preparation for becoming
Peacekeepers. They are typically Career Tributes, some of whom volunteer to
participate, as winning is a great honor in Career Districts. They tend to be strong and
well-prepared, like the Careers from 1 and 4, but have an additional level of brutal
discipline. Katniss describes the District 2 tributes, saying "Cato. Clove. Brutus.
Enobaria. I've seen their eagerness. I've seen their bloodlust, too.
 Cato, Placed 3rd in the 74th Hunger Games.
 Clove, Placed 6th in the 74th Hunger Games.
 Brutus, Placed 7th in the 75th Hunger Games and victor of an unspecified
Hunger Games.
 Enobaria, tribute in the 75th Hunger Games and victor of the 62nd Hunger
Games. After the Second Rebellion and the overthrow of President Snow,
Enobaria was declared the last surviving tribute from District 2.
 Lyme, a victor of a previous and unknown Hunger Games.
TriviaThe close relationship between the Capitol and District 2 shows in that people
from both locations tend to have Roman names: 'Cato', 'Brutus' (District 2), 'Coriolanus',
'Seneca' (Capitol).
 In the film adaptation of The Hunger Games, Haymitch Abernathy remarks that
tributes from Districts 1 and 2, are trained for the Games at special academies
until they reach the age of 18.
 In Mockingjay it is revealed that all Districts were at war with the Capitol except
District 2, which had been later secured by rebel forces towards the end of the
war.
 The rebel strategy at the Nut, is similar to the total war strategy employed during
Sherman's March to the Sea.
 The function and fortification of the Nut is similar to the Cheyenne Mountain
Complex that houses NORAD.
 In both the 74th Hunger Games and the 75th Hunger Games, the District 2 male
tribute was the last to die.
 District 2 is favored the most by the Capitol for its military base, the Nut, and for
the strength and loyalty of the people.
 The District 2 tributes in the two most recent Hunger games, the 74th and 75th,
have always died after District 1.
 District 2 tributes tend to be the strongest Careers.
 District 2 was described as having one of the largest pools of victors.
 It is revealed through a leaked photo in the set of Mockingjay that District 2 has a
total of 12 victors.
 District 2 is shown to be located just below the Capitol as seen in The Hunger
Games Adventures. It is also the second smallest District by size which is ironic
given the fact that its the second largest in terms of population.
 Although people from District 2 were always eager to volunteer for the Hunger
Games (described to have a hunger for 'glory'), it is shown that some of them
have always secretly hated them as much as any other district. Enobaria shows
her hate in Mockingjay.
 Both male tributes in the 74th and 75th Hunger Games were killed by a tribute
from District 12.
 In both the 74th and 75th Hunger Games, the District 2 tributes made it to the top
7.
 Although the District did not rebel as a whole, outer villages are said to have
either been sided or captured by the rebels at a later point of the war.
 District 2 was the last District to maintain under the influence of the Capitol's rule.
 According to the CapitolPN District 2 has 7 quarries in operation with a population
of 231,354, making it the second largest District, in terms of population.
 According to the Capitol.PN, District 2 claims 1,937 in tesserae, making it the
second richest District.
 It is considered a wealthy District.


District 3
"Panem is one of the most advanced nations in mankind's
history, thanks to the efforts of District 3. Its computers keep us
all connected and its electronic gadgets keep us all
entertained."
―Description from The Hunger Games: Tribute
Guide
[src]

District 3 is one of the 13 Districts in Panem. Its main
industry is technology. They specialize in televisions and
computers. In Catching Fire during the Victory Tour,
Katniss notices that this district, along with District 8 and
District 4, shows the most happiness to see her, implying
that it is of the more rebellious districts. It is implied in
Catching Fire that their citizens lived in abject poverty, as
they were one of the first Districts to start an uprising
during the Dark Days. Most of its inhabitants work in
factories and are very well adept with engineering.

Known Tributes

District 3 tributes, 74th Hunger Games
 District 3 male (74th HG) - 74th Hunger Games. Died during the eighth day. He was killed by
Cato because Rue and Katniss blew up the supplies when he was on watch. He placed 9th
out of 24.
 District 3 female (74th HG) - 74th Hunger Games, died during the first day (Bloodbath). She
placed 22nd out of 24.
 Beetee - Victor of a unknown games, 75th Hunger Games. (a Quarter Quell)
 Wiress - Victor of a unknown games, 75th Hunger Games. (a Quarter Quell), died during the
second day by Gloss slitting her throat. She placed 12th out of 24th.
Trivia
Beetee, Wiress and the District 3 male (74th HG) were all
described by Katniss to have ashen skin. This can be a
characteristic of the District, despite in the film Beetee was
the only one tribute from District 3 to have this
characteristic.
 Tributes from District 3 tend to be extremely good at creating and using electronics, as
displayed by Beetee as he became a victor by utilizing his knowledge and skill with electrical
devices.
 Both the tributes in the 74th and 75th Hunger Games, who didn't die in the bloodbath, died
at the hands of a Career, as the District 3 male was killed by Cato and Wiress was killed by
Gloss. This excludes Beetee as he's currently alive.
 While the District 3 female did not make it far in the 74th Hunger Games, dying third in the
bloodbath, the male was electronically skilled and he proved that to the Careers by moving
and then rearming the landmines used to prevent tributes stepping off the pedestals before
the official start of the Games.
 The bread from this district is bite-sized square-shaped rolls.
 Before The Dark Days, District 3 was one of the more wealthy Districts, however it was
crippled by the uprising (in which it presumably played an important role) and living
standards decreased.
 According to The Hunger Games Adventures, District 3 is located directly to the west of
District 12.
 According to the Capitol.pn, District 3 has twelve factories in operation, and a population of
195,354, making it the third largest District, in terms of population.
 It was one of the first Districts to rebel during the 2nd Rebellion, along with Districts 1, 8,
and 11. District 3 was the 2nd - 4th district to pry from Capitol rules and eventually, they
became the third District to do so.
 Although it was said they showed joy during Katniss' arrival during the victory tour, the
citizens of District 3 seemed to be unhappy and later rioted during her speech, pleading for
her to say what she really felt.
 According to the Capitol.PN, District 3 claims 62,991 in tesserae, making it the fifth richest
District.
 It is considered an upper middle class District.





















District 4
"Do you like seafood? Shrimp and crabmeat? Often
overlooked, District 4 plays an essential role, bringing us
the bounty of the sea. These citizens are adept with nets
and tridents, and can swim like fish themselves."
―Description from The Hunger Games: Tribute Guide
District 4 is one of the wealthiest Districts of Panem. Its
industry is fishing, which is useful for tributes in the Games
as they have experience in using nets and tridents, making
fishhooks from scratch, swimming, and identifying edible sea
life. In Catching Fire, Katniss notices during her Victory
Tour that District 4, along with 3 and 8, seemed quite happy
to see her, meaning that District 4 is a rebellious District, and
also how the victors from this District pledged loyalty to the
rebellion and Katniss Everdeen.
Being one of the wealthiest districts, District 4 tends to
produce career tributes, who volunteer to participate in the
Hunger Games. This is also the case for Districts 1 and 2.
These children are raised and trained to win the Games,
making them stronger and much more capable of winning
than the average tribute (although this is illegal). However, in
the films, nothing was mentioned about tributes from District
4 being Careers. The bread from District 4 is a salty, fish-
shaped loaf, tinted green by seaweed. Their source of income
is fishing and kids are trained for these jobs at a young age,
giving them an advantage in the Hunger Games. According
to The Hunger Games Adventures, District 4 is located on
the west coast of Panem just to the southeast of District 7. In
the Catching Fire film, a pretty District 4 girl with blonde
hair and brown eyes looks up at Katniss and tells her "One
day, I'm going to volunteer. Just like you did.", implying that
District 4 citizens may be in favor of the Hunger Games,
similar to Districts 1 and 2, or, that the girl was just a fan of Katniss Everdeen and wanted to
be like her.

While preparing for the 3rd Quarter Quell in the Training Center, Katniss encounters
difficulty at the knot-tying station and is helped by another tribute, and she realizes that "Of
course it's Finnick, who seems to have spent his childhood doing nothing but wielding
tridents and manipulating ropes into fancy knots for nets, I guess". This shows that unlike the
children of District 12 (and just like the children in the other Districts), the children in
District 4 begin to learn their District's industry from an early age.
Everyday life
Not much is known about District 4's way of living, aside from their specialization in fishing.
Even their bread is tinted green because of the seaweed it contains. In Catching Fire, it is
mentioned that District 4 is by the sea, of course. Its rebellious tendencies, expressed during
Katniss and Peeta's Victory Tour, were described as "more of a cry for vengeance" and it was
said that the crowd did not have "the weary cattle feel". This suggests that the citizens of
District 4 faced severe oppression but were healthy enough (not battling starvation and
poverty) to fight.






Known tributes

District 4 tributes, 74th Hunger Games
 District 4 female (74th Hunger Games) - Killed by tracker jackers (book). Died after the initial
bloodbath (film). She placed 11th in the book and 13th in the film.
 District 4 male (74th Hunger Games) - Died in the initial bloodbath. He placed 14th.
 Mags - Tribute in the 3rd Quarter Quell, Victor of the 9th Hunger Games. She placed 15th
out of 24th in the 75th Hunger Games.
 Finnick Odair - Tribute in the 3rd Quarter Quell, Victor of The 65th Hunger Games.
 Annie Cresta - Victor of the 70th Hunger Games.
 District 4 male (70th Hunger Games) - Survived the bloodbath but was later beheaded.
Trivia
 Katniss notes that the bread from this District is tinted green and sprinkled with seaweed.
 Being one of the first Districts to rebel and as well as having the production of career
tributes, it can be inferred that District 4 was probably one of the first District to pry from
the Capitol's grasp, as well as Districts 1, 3, 8, and 11, during the 2nd Rebellion. Although, it
didn't fight one of the first four battles of the war which means it was the 5th - 10th District
to do so.
 Citizens from this District tend to be dressed in light and airy shades of green and blue.
 In Catching Fire, Katniss mentions an accent that many from District 4 speak with when
describing Mags.
 According to the Capitol.PN, District 4 has 12 fisheries in operation with a population of
111,453, making it the seventh largest District, in terms of population.
 According to the Capitol.PN, District 4 claims 26,357 in tesserae, making it the fourth richest
District.
 It is considered a wealthy District.

 Foxface - Died on Day 16 - she placed 4th in the book, and 5th in the movie. (Nightlock
berries)
 District 5 male (74th HG) - Died on the first day (Bloodbath). In the film he placed 17th out of
24.
 District 5 female (75th HG) - Died on the second day (Tsunami) and placed 13th out of 24.
 District 5 male (75th HG) - Died on the first day (Bloodbath) and placed 24th out of 24.
The male tribute during the 74th Hunger Games died during the bloodbath at the Cornucopia.
Katniss nicknamed the female tribute "Foxface." She survived by stealing food from other
tributes in order to keep herself alive, as well as her quick, witty decisions. Ironically, it was
her strategy for survival that eventually killed her. She stole some berries from Peeta
Mellark's collection. Sadly, she mistakenly ate the berries, which were poisonous nightlock.
She placed 4th out of 24. Katniss Everdeen notes that if they were to give out a test, Foxface
would be the smartest by a mile.
The tributes during the 75th Hunger Games were both past victors. The male was an
alcoholic and vomited on the sword-fighting arena during training. The female didn't even
show up to training. In the arena, the male is killed during the bloodbath at the Cornucopia by
Finnick Odair. He placed 24th out of 24. The female lived slightly longer. Katniss hears her
scream when the tsunami hits, drowning and killing her. It's unknown, but unlikely, seeing as
the male tribute attacked Finnick and Katniss, that the District 5 victors were part of the rebel
alliance to free Katniss as they weren't mentioned as one of the Districts that took part.
Trivia
 In the last two Hunger Games, both males were killed in the bloodbath but both females
survived the bloodbath, the opposite of District 10.
 District 5 is possibly one of the more wealthier Districts, such as District 1 or District 2 due to
the low amount of residents who take tesserae . This may also attribute to the theory of
District 5 not being as impoverished as outlyng Districts (10, 11 and 12).
 District 5 was the 5th - 10th District to pry from Capitol rule.
 District 1, District 5 and District 9 are the only districts without a known rebel.
 It can be implied that District 5 would have to be located in western Panem around the
Rocky Mountains as it would need to power the Capitol. This can also be supported by how
District 12, which lies in the Appalachian Mountains in eastern Panem, does not have
enough electricity to light their homes or the electric fence which surrounds the District.
 According to the Capitol.PN, District 5 has 15 power plants in operation with a population of
134,345, making it the fifth largest District, in terms of population.
 According to the Capitol.PN, District 5 claims 2,881 in tesserae, making it the third richest
District.
 It is considered a wealthy District.

District 6 is one of the 13 Districts of Panem. This

heavily bombed by the Capitol's Air Forces. It is hinted
that having a Morphling addiction may have been a
District-wide issue as Katniss nicknamed the victors of
District 6 "Morphlings" because they were addicted to
the painkiller. Most victors from this District take this
drug to forget what they experienced in their Games.
District 6 is also one of the more rebellious Districts, as
the victors from this District were part of the victor
alliance to keep Katniss alive. It is mentioned that this
District is rebellious after the breakout from the arena by
Plutarch Heavensbee.

 In The Hunger Games: Tribute Guide, it says that the people of District 6 dislike traveling,
even though their industry is transportation.
 A tribute from District 6, Titus, during an unknown Hunger Games, went mad and resorted
to cannibalism. He started eating the tributes until he was killed by an avalanche, thought to
be purposely set up by the gamemakers, ensuring someone insane wouldn't win.
 District 6 was the 5th - 10th District to pry from Capitol rule.
 Tributes from here have a disadvantage as they have no experience with tools or weaponry,
unlike most other districts.
 The citizens of this District seem to be extremely oppressed, shown on how rough the
Peacekeepers are on this District, and had a large uprising in Catching Fire.
 According to the Capitol.PN, District 6 has 52 active hubs with a population of 784,453,
making it the largest District in Panem, in terms of population, with almost four times as
many citzens as District 2, the second place holder. Due to being the largest District in terms
of population, it is also extremely unstable, making Morphling a district-wide problem.
 According to the Capitol.PN, District 6 claims 68,366 in tesserae, making it the sixth most
impoverished District.
 It is considered a Lower middle class District.
 According to The Hunger Games Adventures, District 6 would be situated directly north of
District 3, which fits more appropriately with what was seen in Catching Fire.

that Johanna Mason, being from District 7, probably threw and used axes since she was a
toddler. This suggests that most citizens from District 7 begin working with axes at an early
age, probably in the forests that surround the District, chopping down the trees for their
district's industry. District 7 is possibly a wealthier district which can hint that life is easier
there.

 District 7 is one of the larger Districts, possibly due to space for the trees.
 District 7's tributes have learned to throw axes at an early age, making some of the tributes
well trained. They also seem to prefer axes as their weapon of choice. One of these
examples is Johanna who used a throwing axe.
 According to The Hunger Games Adventures, District 7 is located directly to the northeast of
District 4 on the northwestern coast of Panem.
 Aside from Career Districts, (1, 2, and 4) District 7 has the biggest advantage in the games, as
they not only have experience in the arenas brutal environment, but they also show
exceptional skill in weapons such as an axe and other cutting tools.
 It is revealed in Mockingjay that District 7 has 7 victors.
 According to the Capitol.PN, District 7 claims 63,125 in tesserae, making it the sixth richest
District.
 It is considered an upper middle-class District.













District 8
"From the simple, lovely fabrics of the districts to the
brocades favoured in the Capitol, District 8 makes it all."
―Description from The Hunger Games: Tribute
Guide
[src]


Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark in District 8.
District 8 is one of the thirteen Districts of Panem. Its
main industry is making textiles and clothing. They
have at least one factory that is primarily used for
making Peacekeeper uniforms. Katniss describes
District 8 as "an urban place stinking of industrial
fumes with no greenery, the people housed in run down
tenements, barely a blade of grass in sight." In Catching
Fire during the Victory Tour, Katniss notices that this
District, along with District 3 and District 4, shows the
most happiness to see her, suggesting that they are one
of the more rebellious districts. District 8 played one of
the largest roles in the 2nd Rebellion, including starting
the war itself.

Uprising
District 8 was one of the Districts that President Snow was concerned would rebel against
Capitol rule. On the night when Peeta proposed to Katniss, District 8 rose up and fought
against its Peacekeeping force. The Peacekeepers were caught off guard and overwhelmed by
the sheer numbers of the mob. The Peacekeepers' Headquarters, the Justice Building, the
armory, and the Communications Center were all secured by the rebels. However, the Capitol
responded by sending in thousands of Peacekeepers and using hovercrafts to bomb the rebel
strongholds. The rebels began to flee and the forward momentum slowed, then stopped.
Everything went into a lockdown mode, and no one was allowed out of their houses for a
while. The factories were shut down and the only time the TV played anything other than
static was when it showed suspected rebel instigators being executed. Eventually things
returned to normal, but the Capitol blew up one large factory when they found out the talk of
rebellion started there. After the rebellion, the leader of District 8, Paylor, became President
of Panem after President Snow was disposed of and Katniss assassinated President Coin.
Bombings
In Mockingjay, Katniss went to District 8 to visit the victims from the Capitol bombings and
to broadcast the first propaganda video to air in all the Districts and the Capitol. When she
was leaving, Boggs tells her that they need to get to the airstrip because of incoming
bombers. In an effort to fight against the bombers, Katniss and Gale climb to the roof of a
warehouse that has machine gun nests, running into Commander Paylor. Together, they all
work to destroy the other waves of hoverplanes that fly overhead.
Bonnie and Twill
Bonnie and Twill were two people from District 8 who were trying to escape to District 13.
Katniss had found them traveling through the woods surrounding District 12. They showed
her a piece of bread with a mockingjay stamped on it, which is the "symbol for the rebels."
They were going to District 13 because they had heard stories of people living under the
District. They were leaving because the factory that the Capitol had destroyed was the one
that they worked at. It was a fluke that they didn't die. Twill had worked as a school teacher
and Bonnie was her pupil. Twill and her husband had planned on dressing in Peacekeeper
uniforms and escaping. When Bonnie and Twill had finished their school day, they headed to
the factory. However, there were large craters in the roads from the Peacekeeper bombings
they had to avoid. Because of this, they were late for work, and were still a few blocks away
when the whole factory blew up. Bonnie's whole family died and so did Twill's husband, so
the two headed off on their own. They also told Katniss that they thought the Capitol had
been using the same tape of District 13 every time they air the surface, and that during the
tape, a wing of a mockingjay passed by the corner of the screen. In Mockingjay, it was
revealed that the two of them never made it to District 13. They are presumed to be deceased
and may have been killed by the Capitol or died of exposure in the winter forest.
Trivia
Incomes in District 8 are fairly low, for example Twill
mentions that she put in a four hour shift in a Peacekeeper
Uniform factory after her full-time job as a teacher.
Bonnie, a child, also mentions putting in a four hour shift
after she gets out of school.

Victory Tour Train Ride To District 8
 The tributes from District 8 usually die within the first few days of the Games. However, in
The 74th Hunger Games, both tributes showed to have shown high odds, as the female had
the odds of 5-1 and the male had the odds of 3-1, but it is established the odds aren't
reliable, in fact she lit a fire at night and he died first. The District has also proven to produce
at least two victors: Cecelia and Woof. Also, in Mockingjay it was revealed the District 8 had
four victors.
 District 8, like District 12 and District 13, was targeted by the Capitol the most during the
rebellion.
 District 8 was the first District to rise up against its Peacekeeping force. Thus, beginning the
2nd rebellion.
 At the end of Mockingjay, after President Coin is assassinated, Paylor, the District 8
Commander, becomes president of Panem
 According to the Catching Fire film, as well as a pre-production sketch from the Movie
Companion Book, District 8 is featured to have at least 6 functional Textile based factories.
Other displayed works of architecture include a bridge that connects two landmasses
separated by a river, and a Clock Tower which extends into the sky.
 The citizens are seen to be clothed in a palette of vibrant and brighter colors than other
Districts, considering that District 8's primary focus is that of Textile production. Their
physical attire resembles that of an urban American 1960s get-up.
 The tributes' jackets on the holograms are maroon red, however in the film they had golden
jackets.
 In the 74th Hunger Games, according to the film, both tributes from District 8 were killed by
District 1 tributes.
 Both Cecelia and the female tribute from the 74th Hunger Games outlived their male
counterparts.
 District 8 is probably located on the northern east coast of Panem, in the New England area.
This is shown on the map in the Catching Fire film when Katniss spies on the video of the
rebellion in District 8. It also makes sense to have District 8 located there since this is where
many textile mills are located.
 Since Woof was very old, we can assume he won the 15th - 23rd Hunger Games, while
Cecelia won the 58th - 61st, being around 30 during the 75th Hunger Games. Severa
Inchcape won before Woof's games and Indigo Weaver won between Woof's and Cecelia's
games.
 Although the first uprising resulted in a failure, the Battle of District 8 resulted in the capture
of the District near the beginning of the war. This meant that District 8 was the first District
to be released from Capitol rule.
 District 8, as the film suggests, appeared to be snowing during Katniss and Peeta's Victory
Tour, and was located near a shore.
 District 8 is guessed to be around New York.
 During the victory tour in District 8, it can be seen that the district looks a lot like Lowell,
Massachusetts.
 According to the Capitol.PN, District 8 has 43 factories in operation with a population of
122,134, making it the sixth largest District, in terms of population.
 According to the Capitol.PN, District 8 claims 69,892 in tesserae, making it the fifth most
impoverished District.
 It is considered a Lower middle class District.























District 9
"District 9 is Panem's bread bowl, giving us the fertile harvest
we need to keep rising as a nation. Its amber waves of grain
are an inspiration to us all."
―Description from The Hunger Games: Tribute
Guide
[src]

District 9 is one of the thirteen Districts of Panem. It is
responsible for grain. It is mentioned that District 9 has
many factories, most likely for grain processing.
Jobs
The following jobs are offered in District 9:
 Cropper
 Farmer

District 9 Tributes, 74th Hunger Games

Two District 9 victors.
It's unknown, but unlikely, seeing as the male tribute attacked Peeta, that the District 9 victors
were part of the rebel alliance to free Katniss as they weren't mentioned as one of the
Districts that took part.
Trivia
 District 9 is the least spoken about District in the Hunger Games series.
 The only hint given that District 9's industry was grain is that it is said that District 9 has lots
of factories.
 In the 75th Hunger Games, District 9 was one of the two Districts to have both tributes killed
on the first day.
 In the 74th Hunger Games, District 9 was one of the four (movie) and three (book) Districts
to have both tributes die on the first day.
 There is no known person from District 9 in the books, however, a leaked photo of the
Mockingjay set reveals that the two victors's names are Marian Green and Daniel Berhardt,
the same names as their actors.
 District 9 was the 5th - 10th District to pry from Capitol rule.
 District 1, District 5 and District 9 are the only Districts without a known rebel.
 District 9's poor performance in The Hunger Games may be based on the theory of it being a
very urban District, raising tributes with no overall experience whatsoever about the wild of
the arena, causing these tributes to easily be killed. However, this can still be questionable
as grain farming is grown in fields, despite District 9's inferred urban atmosphere.
 District 9 is the only District in which all tributes of the two most recent games have been
killed in the bloodbath.
 According to the Capitol.PN, District 9 has 12 mills in operation with a population of
15,346, making it the eleventh largest District, in terms of population.
 According to the Capitol.PN, District 9 claims 70,532 in tesserae, making it the fourth most
impoverished District.
 It is considered a poor District.






















District 10
"The gentle lowing of cattle is the first thing a visitor to
District 10 hears. This region raises strong, healthy livestock,
which becomes the meat that helps us raise strong, healthy
children of Panem."
―Description from The Hunger Games: Tribute
Guide
[src]

District 10 is one of the poorer of the thirteen Districts
of Panem. Its main industry is livestock, and provides
beef for the Capitol. Since they are in charge of
livestock, it can be assumed that the majority of District
10 is farmland.

District 10 Tributes, 74th Hunger Games
It's unknown, but unlikely, that the District 10 victors were part of the rebel alliance to free
Katniss as they weren't mentioned as one of the Districts that took part.
Dalton
Dalton, a refugee from District 10, made it on foot to District 13 a few years before Katniss
Everdeen did. He leaked the real motive of District 13's kindness to Katniss, which was using
the refugees as new a breeding stock, due to a pox epidemic that killed many of the District
13 natives and left most of the survivors infertile. Dalton also presided over Finnick and
Annie's wedding. He isn't mentioned in the war.





Trivia
 In the 74th and 75th Hunger Games, both female tributes died during the Cornucopia
bloodbath, while the male tributes survived a bit longer, but then later died from an
unknown cause. This is the opposite of District 5.
 District 10 was the 5th - 10th District to pry from Capitol rule.
 The wedding ceremonies in District 10 are similar to the ceremonies in District 4, shown
when Dalton presided over the wedding of Finnick Odair and Annie Cresta.
 Dalton is the only named person from District 10.
 In the 74th and 75th Hunger Games, this was one of the two Districts to have absolutely no
named tributes. The other District is District 9. However, the District 10 male in the 74th
Hunger Games was nicknamed "The Boy With The Bad Leg," as Katniss noticed a limp in his
step. In addition, the two victors from District 9 and District 10 have their names revealed
from a leaked photo of the Mockingjay set, which means that any Districts haven't
absolutely no named tributes in the films either.
 The children there are almost certainly malnourished, as the District 10 male (74th HG) was
crippled.
 Both District 10 males' deaths were not shown in the film and were not seen surviving.
 District 10 is located around present day texas, as seen in the Map shown in Catching Fire.
 According to the Capitol.PN, District 10 has a livestock count of 1 Million with a population
of 19,234, making it the tenth largest District, in terms of population.
 According to the Capitol.PN, District 10 claims 291,963 in tesserae, making it the third most
impoverished District.
 It is considered a poor District.














District 11
"Known for its bountiful orchards, District 11's workers
spend their days among rustling fruit trees and sizeable
farms."
―Description from The Hunger Games: Tribute
Guide
[src]

District 11 is one of the poorer of the thirteen Districts
of Panem. Their industry is agriculture; orchards,
fields of wheat, and cotton surround the District.
Almost everything they grow goes to the Capitol,
despite their starvation; if any citizen of District 11 is
caught eating any of the crops, they are to be whipped
in public. Its inhabitants are described as having dark
brown skin as described in the physical traits of Rue,
Thresh, Seeder (film) and Chaff.

Government and Security
"Hearing this, District 12 feels like some kind of safe haven. Of course, people keel over from
starvation all the time, but I can't imagine the peacekeepers murdering a simple-minded child."
―Katniss
[src]

The Capitol's control over District 11 is total, due to the importance of food production, and its
regional government is known for being harsh and cruel. For example, in Catching Fire, when Peeta

and Katniss visited District 11 in their Victory Tour, they witnessed an old man being executed by
Peace keepers for whistling Rue's four note tune.

Two more gunshots were heard afterwards, suggesting that the Peacekeeper's then turned on the
crowd. The fence surrounding the District is thirty feet high and topped with razor wire, with metal
ground plates to prevent anyone digging beneath and guard towers evenly spaced along it. It is
always turned on so the citizens cannot escape, unlike District 12, where their

Rue mentioned that a boy named Martin was once killed for trying to keep a pair of night
vision goggles in order to play with them, even though he was harmless and only "acted like
a three-year old". If any worker stole crops, they were publicly whipped, a common
occurrence that the Mayor was described as strict on. In general, the Capitol tried to keep a
tighter grip on District 11 because of it being the main food supplier, and as such was vital to
the Capitol's existence.
Location
According to Suzanne Collins, District 11 is near Atlanta. It appears to be south of District
12, because its weather was comfortably warm while snow was falling in 12. This warm
weather would lengthen District 11's growing season and provide an ideal climate for
growing food.

Relation to The Games

Katniss saluting District 11.
District 11 tributes are usually underfed and unprepared for the games, and generally place
low. However, some have occupational skills that are useful in the arena, such as Rue, who
could leap between trees. Others, like Thresh, are extremely large/muscular and have a large
amount of strength because of physical labor, and the ability of both to recognize edible
plants.
During the 74th Games (in the film), after Rue's death was shown, a riot was started in
District 11.
Known Tributes

District 11 Tributes, 74th Hunger Games
 Chaff - Placed 8th and among the Final 8 in the 75th Hunger Games, Victor of the 45th
Hunger Games.
 Seeder - Died during Day 1 in the 75th Hunger Games, but won an unspecified Hunger
Games. She placed 20th out of 24.
 Rue - Placed 7th in the 74th Hunger Games. Killed by Marvel.
 Thresh - Placed 5th (book), 4th (film) in the 74th Hunger Games.
Usually, tributes from District 11 die early, making Rue and Thresh real exceptions when
they both reached the final eight, Thresh reaching the final five. Chaff and Seeder, as victors
in their respective Games, were selected in the reaping to participate in the 75th Hunger
Games, the third Quarter Quell. Although Seeder was killed in the bloodbath, presumably
trying to keep Katniss from getting killed, Chaff, her District partner, placed 9th.
Every known tribute of District 11 died at the hands of a Career. However, in the movie,
Thresh died from the wolf muttations set on them by the Gamemakers, though it was
presumed he and Cato were fighting and the mutts were set on half way through.
Way of Life
District 11 specializes in agriculture, growing wheat and managing orchards. The signature
bread from this District is a dark, crescent-shaped roll dotted with seeds. There are many
tracker jacker nests in District 11, causing workers to keep medical leaves on hand. In the
orchards small children are sent to high branches to pick the highest fruits. They have long
hours: from sunrise to sunset, the people work the fields to send food off to the Capitol.
During the harvest they often work until well after dark, using torchlight and night vision
goggles. District 11 is many times larger than District 12. The citizens of District 11 live in
small shacks. The people of this District are described as having "dark hair and dark skin".
Due to this, they may be of African American, Latin American, Native American, or South
Asian decent. However, due to the location of District 11 being confirmed by Suzanne
Collins as "the Deep South" it is likely that they are mostly African American, or of Latin
American decent.
Trivia
 District 11 is possibly the biggest District which is not a surprise because they would need a
big space for farm/garden, also it is shown they travel through a lot on the train to the
square.
 All known tributes from District 11 are of African-American decent.
 In the 74th Hunger Games, District 11 has both the tallest tribute (Thresh), and both smallest
and youngest tribute (Rue).
 After being the 2nd - 4th District (eventually the 2nd) to pry from the Capitol's rule,
communications went out in Districts 3, 7, and 12 to rebel. Afterwards, District 11 sends
food to rebelling Districts in hopes of winning the war.
 According to the Capitol.PN, District 11 has a cultivated acreage of 12 with a population of
138,546, making it the fourth largest District, in terms of population.
 According to the Capitol.PN, District 11 claims 822,568 in tesserae, making it the second
most impoverished District.
 It is considered a poor District





District 12
"One of the outer districts, this is nonetheless a crucial one.
These brave and hardy workers descend deep into the earth
each day to mine the coal that keeps our nation running."
―Description from The Hunger Games: Tribute
Guide
[src]

District 12 is the poorest of the thirteen Districts in the
nation of Panem.
Located in the Appalachia and with a population of around
8,000 or more people, District 12's main industry is coal
mining. However, after the second rebellion, their main
industry became medicine.
[1]

Contents
[show]
Areas and places
District 12 consisted of four different areas: the Seam, the
merchant section, the Victors' Village, and the Hob.
The Seam
Main article: The Seam
"District Twelve. Where you can starve to death in
safety."
―Katniss Everdeen
[src]

The Seam was the poorest part of District 12 and where
Katniss Everdeen and Gale Hawthorne had lived. The
Seam was located on the border of District 12, next to the
wild forests. It was extremely hard to find food in there,
and many families lived in poverty. Because of this, an
adult who lives to be very old is respected and thought of
as wise. Many who live there were missing members of
their family, due to mining accidents or from starvation.
Also, Katniss mentioned that they only have electricity a
few hours a day, so they mostly use candles for light.

Early in the mornings, the streets of the Seam were crowded with tired and worn-down coal
miners heading to work. Everything in that part of the District was covered in a layer of coal
dust due to the coal mining of the region.
Typically, residents of the Seam have dark hair, grey eyes, and an olive complexion, which is
why Prim and her mother always looked so out of place in the Seam, as they both had blonde
hair and bright blue eyes, due to Mrs. Everdeen's heritage.
Merchant section
This area of the District was definitely a step-up from the Seam. The mayor and his daughter,
along with other families such as Peeta Mellark's, lived in the merchant area and are well-off
for District 12. It was mentioned by Katniss that the merchants "lived above their
businesses," suggesting that the merchants' homes doubled as their shops as well.
The merchant section did exactly what its name implied - trading and buying goods. With the
District's coal mines, they made some trades to the Capitol and occasionally to the other
Districts.
Residents of the merchant area's appearances set them apart from residents of the Seam, as
most of them have blonde hair and blue eyes.
Katniss' mother originally lived in the merchant section, but she moved to the Seam to live
with her husband after she got married.
The Hob
Main article: The Hob
The Hob was District 12's black market. This was where Katniss and Gale went to sell or
trade their excess game. Many things were available for purchase or trade at the Hob, varying
from some of Greasy Sae's soup, a goat, or white liquor made by Ripper. It was later burned
down by Peacekeepers in Catching Fire.
Victors' Village
Main article: Victors Village
The Victors' Village is a small village where the victors of previous Hunger Games dwell in.
The houses are grand and luxurious compared to the houses in District 12. In total, District 12
had four victors in the span of 75 Hunger Games, however the first victor from District 12
died sometime before the 74th Hunger Games, thus leaving only Katniss Everdeen, Peeta
Mellark and Haymitch Abernathy as residents in District 12's Victor's Village.
The Justice Building
The Justice Building of District 12 was used for formal administration such as registration of
marriages, a place for tributes to bid goodbye to their loved ones, and the occasional medal of
valour for the oldest child in the families of miners who died in mining accidents, like
Katniss and Gale's fathers had.
Weddings
"Back home everything is so much simpler. A woman usually rents a white dress that's been
worn hundreds of times. The man wears something clean that's not mining clothes. They fill
out some forms at the Justice Building and are assigned a house. Family and friends gather
for a meal or bit of cake, if it can be afforded. Even if it can't, there's always a traditional
song we sing as the new couple crosses the threshold of their home. And we have our own
little ceremony, where they make their first fire, toast a bit of bread, and share it. Maybe it's
old-fashioned, but no one really feels married in District 12 until after the toasting."

Boundaries
Main article: The fence
A twenty-foot high electric fence surrounded the District. According to the officials and
Peacekeepers


Katniss standing beside the District 12 fence.

from the District, it was "electrified" twenty-four hours a day, but Katniss could tell if it was currently
electrified or not. In Catching Fire, the District was given a new Head Peacekeeper named Thread,
but when Katniss went out into the woods and came back, the charge was on. The fence was
electrified twenty-four hours a day from then on.
In theory, the gate was said to be there to keep out the wild animals that roam the woods.
Although, it is more likely that it was meant to keep the people in.
Known Tributes
 Maysilee Donner - 50th Hunger Games tribute.
 Haymitch Abernathy - Winner of the 50th Hunger Games.
 Unknown tributes of the 73rd Hunger Games - mentioned in the first book.
 Katniss Everdeen - Co-Victor of the 74th Hunger Games
 Peeta Mellark - Co-Victor of the 74th Hunger Games
Escorts
The only known escort for District 12 was Effie Trinket, a bubbly, pink-haired, air-headed
lady from the Capitol. However, it was shown, in the recap of Haymitch's Games, that there
was another escort before Effie. Effie was reluctant and slightly unwelcoming to the tributes
as she felt as though she was bound to be promoted to a better District.
Destruction
At the end of Catching Fire, Gale sees Katniss on her way to District 13 and informs her that
there is no District 12. It was destroyed with fire bombs by the Capitol. The only thing that
wasn't destroyed was the Victor's Village. In Mockingjay, District 12 slowly rebuilds after the
war.
Reconstruction
During the Second Rebellion, the rebels used District 12 as a transportation base to send
troops to the Capitol. Katniss and Squad 451 were taken there before being transported to the
Capitol. After Panem's second war, Katniss and Haymitch returned to District 12. Peeta
eventually returned as well. Most of the remains of District 12 citizens were buried in a mass
grave. A medicine factory was constructed, and District 12 began to rebuild. The filled-in
mass grave is now the meadow. In the epilogue, this is where Katniss and Peeta's children,
Rye and Willow, play. Later, they agree to tell them one day about who they were and what
they died for. Katniss and Peeta live in their home in the Victor's Village. They also start
making medicine for the country instead of producing coal, due to the mines being closed.


Trivia
 All the living victors of District 12: Haymitch, Katniss and Peeta have killed Careers sometime
in their Games. Katniss killed Glimmer, Marvel, Cato, Gloss, and a female from 4, Peeta killed
Brutus, and Haymitch killed four unnamed Careers in his Games, including the District 1
female.
 All of the living victors of District 12 have competed in a Quarter Quell.
 All of the living victors of District 12 won their first Hunger Games at the age of 16.
 All three living victors have comforted someone in their last moments: Katniss comforted
Rue in the 74th Hunger Games, Peeta comforted the female morphling in the 75th Hunger
Games and Haymitch comforted Maysilee Donner in the 50th Hunger Games.
 All of the named tributes from District 12 made their way into the top five.
 According to The Hunger Games Adventures, District 12 is located on the East Coast of
Panem and is the smallest District by size.
 Each of the victors from District 12 have done an act that makes the Capitol look foolish.
Katniss and Peeta both almost ate the berries, knowing the Capitol need their victor,
therefore both of them won. Haymitch used the forcefield as a weapon, because when the
girl from District 1 threw her axe towards him, she didn't know it would come back, thereby
getting an axe in her head, resulting in Haymitch's victory in the 50th Hunger Games.
 Although it was one of the most targeted Districts during the 2nd Rebellion, District 12 never
had an officially organized rebellion against the Capitol, as it was fire-bombed and destroyed
early into the war.
 In the film it is recognized that District 12 only has 3 victors. However in the first book it is
said that District 12 has 4 victors. In the first chapter of The Hunger Games on page
nineteen, Katniss states "Then he reads the list of past District 12 victors. In seventy-four
years, we have had exactly two. Only one is still alive." Due to the first victor being dead, and
Haymitch having been the only one for many years, it can be assumed that the first District
12 victor won a very early Hunger Games, and was possibly alive to mentor Haymitch.
 According to the Capitol.PN, District 12 has 15 mines in operation with a population of
7,935, making it the smallest of the twelve operational Districts, in terms of population.
 According to the Capitol.PN, District 12 claims 862,568 in tesserae, most of any District,
proving that it is the most impoverished one of Panem.
 It is considered a poor District.
 District 12 is the only one District to not pry from Capitol rule, since it was destroyed just
after the end of the 3rd Quarter Quell.








District 13
"District 13 makes our nukes and guns that our nation has.
Including land mines. This nation wouldn't be a nation
without the 13th District of Panem."
―Katniss Everdeen, on District 13's creation and
destruction.

District 13 is the last of the thirteen districts of Panem and
was thought to be destroyed by the Capitol during the first
rebellion. It's said to be uninhabitable, the ruins still
smoldering from the toxic bombs dropped on it. However,
the district is actually fully operational but underground, and
in an agreement with the Capitol to remain independent and
in exchange, not to start a nuclear war with Panem. Its
industries were mining graphite and nuclear
science/technology. The Capitol had agreed to leave the
people of District 13 alone, therefore they do not participate
in the Hunger Games. The Capitol demolished the visible
remains of the district and cut off all access from the
outside.
In Catching Fire, Bonnie and Twill from District 8 tell
Katniss Everdeen about the mockingjay that has
repeatedly been seen flying across the corner of the
screen when the Capitol is supposedly televising new
footage of District 13. The ruins are always smoldering
and the same news reporter is talking in front of the
rubble. This reveals that the Capitol never actually
shows the current state of the district, but instead always
replays old footage. Bonnie and Twill believe that there
is a civilization living underground. At the end of
Catching Fire, Katniss learns that District 13 is being
used as a base for the new rebellion.
District 13's leader is President Coin. It is unclear where
District 13 is located.

Everyday life
On the temporary tattoo the District 13 citizens get every morning, it shows what that person
needs to do. It shows the specific activity, and the time showed in 24-hour time. Certain
activities that are scheduled every morning are breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Other activities
are the Command, where citizens of District 13 write down what they want changed or added
to the schedule. The schedule also depends on the age. If you are under 14, you go to school
where you study classes on history or other subjects. During the day, you are arranged a
strict 30 minute down time with family. People are not allowed to have outside pets, as a
precaution. Although in a deal established by Katniss Everdeen, she asked for permission for
her younger sister, Primrose Everdeen, to keep the small tom cat named Buttercup she took
care of in District 12. Buttercup is let outside to find food, but his comings and goings are
strictly controlled, and if he causes any problems, he will be shot on sight. Katniss also
requested special hunting time. President Coin accepted, but stipulated that she could only
hunt within a strict quarter-mile radius for a time span of two hours and had to use the game
that they, she and Gale, caught for the kitchen in District 13. They each had a tracking device
attached to their ankle.





History
In the book, Mockingjay, it is revealed that District 13 was never destroyed, but that they
moved underground due to a non-aggression pact with the The Capitol: if District 13 stayed
hidden underground with no contact anywhere else, playing dead, the Capitol wouldn't bother
them. The reason that the Capitol was willing to agree to this pact is that District 13
specialized in nuclear weapons, and District 13 had trained their nuclear missiles on the
Capitol, threatening to destroy them.
When District 13 gained independence from Panem, it also gained a valuable asset in nuclear
weapons, and had a non-aggression pact with the Capitol, ensuring its safety. When District
13 relocated underground, they began developing and manufacturing new types of weaponry
and later did so for the rebel armed forces during the 2nd Rebellion. It is also mentioned that
there was a pox outbreak that spread through District 13, lowering the population and making
most of the survivors infertile. For that reason, District 13 was eager to accept refugees as
"breeding stock" and unsurprisingly there were very few children in the district.
Weddings are conducted as a couple signs a paper and moves into a compartment together.
After the third Quarter Quell, the survivors were taken there, along with the refugees from the
bombing of District 12. The tributes of the Quarter Quell were cared for and trained for the
rebellion. Beetee from District 3 built specialized weaponry, Katniss became the Mockingjay
symbol, Finnick narrated propos, and so on.
