In penance for their uprising, each district shall offer up a male and a female between the ages of 12 and 18 at a public "Reaping". These tributes shall be delivered to the custody of the Capitol, and then transferred to a public arena, where they will fight to the death until a lone victor remains. Henceforth and forevermore this pageant shall be known as "The Hunger Games".

Capitolites are those bouncy, energetic, egotistic, colorful people you only hear rumors of. That is, until you actually go to the Capitol. The Capitol is a wonder to the District people. Its bright people confuse them, the amount of food and freedom everyone s is weird, and the way things are run is so much different than that of the Districts. The people themselves are seen as bubbly and over eager to please. Egotistic and very fond of themselves is another quality they seem to possess. Each Capitolite tends to think highly of the games: more as a gift then a curse.
The wealthiest of the districts in all of Panem. The primary industry for this District is to manufacture the luxury items for the Capitol, thus making them a fan favorite during the Games. This is one of the only Districts to seem to take pride in the Games, and thus train for them beforehand, making them considered a "Career District". Volunteering for the Games in this District is common and sometimes leads to big fights amongst the Tributes.
Another wealthy District in Panem. District Two tends to the needs of the Capitol more so than any other District. This is where most of the Peacekeepers are trained and where most weapons are manufactured. But the primary specialization for this District is stone mining, stone cutting, and stone working. The most common mineral found is Graphite, which is sent to District one to be turned into Diamonds! THis District is also the closest to the Capitol itself, and has been rewarded over time for the loyalty to the Capitol. The Tributes from Two tend to be better trained than the lower Districts, making them yet another "Career District".
Before the rebellion, District Three was the richest District around. They had all the wealth because of the great need for the technology, which is the main factor for the people of District Three. But ever since the rebellion the wealth factor has gone down here, but they still remain at the top. The people here are well fed and well equipped for life inside of the District, but in the Games they have little to no training what-so-ever and tend to only win by outwitting.
The last of the "Career Districts" is found here, District Four. The people tend to train the most out of any other District there is, almost hoping they can get into the Games. A wealthy District, it is, that the people are allowed special treatment from the Capitol and are allowed to train. The industry for this District is Fishing, which gives the Tributes somewhat of an advantage. THey are some of the only people who can swim, thus making them valuable. No less they can make fishing hooks from nothing and other water based weapons. Volunteering in this District is a big thing and teds to lead to fights, much like District One.
District Five is a mystery to most of the other areas of Panem. Not many people actually know what they do for the Capitol. But they hold power. District five is a power grid that allows for the electricity of the entire nation to be spread out. The people here tend to know their way around wiring and other electric items that most other people wouldn't know a thing about.
The main focus of this District is to create the travel based items for the Capitol that have little use elsewhere, in other Districts. This means that this District tends to be a bit poorer than other Districts. It is hinted that people from this District might be all addicted to Morphling, but we don't know the truth behind this rumor. Either way, our trains and hovercrafts all come from this place and most of these people could probably run one if need be.
This is one of the poorer Districts, ranging lower along with Twelve and Eleven. People tend to have a harder life here, but they say what doesn't kill you makes you stronger and this can be true for the people of District Seven. The Tributes coming from here tend to be stronger due to holding an ax all their lives, and boy can they wield one like a weapon. The District itself, though, is almost completely covered in trees and has one main town: so most people know each other.
Textiles and clothing come from this District. The clothes you wear on your back right now? Yeah, those come from District Eight. They make almost all of those weird clothes for the Capitol and still don't make enough money to continue a good living. The District seems to be almost covered with pure factories that the people work in. The only good thing about these people is that they can work their way with a needle and tend to be able to sew up some cuts every now and then, but other than that the people from Eight have a rough time in the Games.
District Nine has a lot of grain factories, considering their main industry is grain work. But unlike District Eight, they have giant fields completely covered with different grain plants ready to be harvested half the year. But because they can't work all year long, these people are some of the poorest and most malnutritioned that you will ever meet. They tend to be sickly and thin and don't last very long inside the Arena.
District Ten's primary industry is livestock. Pigs, bulls, cows, and all of those types of animals tend to roam around these lands. Most of the District itself is complete farmland and is overrun with the animals and plants that are needed to survive. But don't get yourself wrong, just because these people have a load of livestock doesn't mean they eat any better than a lower District. Although they do tend to have an extra meal every here and there, they are considered a middle class District. This is due to the fact that most of their beef has to be sent to the Capitol.
The poorest District, aside from District Twelve, is also one of the biggest. The people here are very underfed, and anyone caught eating extra is to be whipped in public, and tend to just lie down and die. The main industry of the District is agriculture; but all of their crops go straight to the Capitol and they remain underfed. The people are kept under strict warrant and are mistreated by the Peacekeepers. Tributes from this District tend to not survive long in the Games.
This District is the poorest of all of the Districts in Panem. Life here is the hardest you could possibly go through and it's said that people will constantly be found dead right on the side of the road. People are hungry and not fed properly, due to the lack of money here. You will rarely find a real nutritioned person here. The primary industry for District Twelve is coal mining, much like District Two's mining. But unlike District Two, there isn't much coal left here to actually mine. Hence, they can't send very much to the Capitol and most people aren't paid right. Tributes don't last long at all during the Games, due to their hunger and their low level of skill.
Any dead character can still be used, only they can't roleplay in the Districts. This is the area to which they are confined. You must roleplay here if you're a ghost. This place is sort of like a limbo, so no humans should be able to come in here, simply just ghosts with other ghosts.
