"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

District 12 is the twelfth designated District of Panem. Its is the smallest of the Districts, as well as the poorest. It is known to have only four Tributes win the Hunger Games, and it is not afforded much respect. Life in the District is incredibly harsh, and nearly everyone lives in a state of poverty and starvation.

However, the actions of the two Tributes of District 12 during the 74th Hunger Games - Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark - have become among the catalysts for the current Rebellion that has spread throughout Panem. Their suicide pact at the end of the Games was among the reasons President Snow ordered the construction of the teleportation machine beneath District 2. All three of the currently living Victors - Katniss, Peeta, and Haymitch Abernathy - are also figures of varying importance in the current Rebellion.

Gamemakers' DescriptionEdit
