"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

District 8 is the eighth designated District in Panem. It is pointedly spoken as one of the poorest Districts in the country, and one of the most closely watched by President Snow and the Peacekeepers since the 74th Hunger Games. All of the clothing in the Capitol is designed by the people in this District, including the clothing of the Peacekeepers. According to some accounts, conditions in this District are particularly brutal and difficult, and the sky is choked with factory pollution.

District 8 is one of the most rebellious in Panem. Indeed, prior to the arrival of the new Tributes, there was a Rebellion-related uprising by the people after the night Peeta Mellark proposed to Katniss Everdeen in the Capitol after the two Victors' tour of Panem. The riots were brutally suppressed by the Peacekeepers, but District 8 continues to be a problem; those who do not fight directly, or who wish to flee the District, instead try to disappear altogether.

Gamemakers' DescriptionEdit

" Panem's largest producers of textiles, District 8 is full of many factories where clothing, linens, uniforms and other things are made. District 8 is located in an area once known as the American Midwest."
