A diamond located at the Capitol’s mountain base, the Saturn City was established after the Dark Days to act as a hub of extravagance. The now-neon city is known for its nightlife scene, with at least one private club or drag bar on every street. Most of the Capitol’s media industry has migrated their quarters here, being built along side whirring casinos and grand theaters.
No one in Panem is more attached to the Games than the Capitolites who put them on. So absorbed do they become, in fact, that most of Panem's richest tier refuse to let their favorite moments go. Many reruns of Games past can be found in between regular shows- but for some, watching them on television isn't enough. These are the people who can be found at the sites of past Arenas, reenacting the most dramatic deaths and having picnics in the prettier regions. Zoos with examples of the muttations are quite popular, as are demonstrations of Gamemaker traps, and many people even enjoy dressing up as their favorite tributes.
District One, the Capitols most darling district, is regarded as the most reliable of the career districts. Many of the citizens of District One don't have to worry about financial burdens, many families rich enough that they don't need to work. Many fill this time by becoming Careers or train their children to become the most dangerous tributes in the Hunger Games. Recently they has been an increase of funding for the academies, allowing the construction of new facilities or updated facilities. However, the most significant change is the chance to become a star away from the battlefield. Panem's birth place for the next generation of entertainers, District One might even rival Saturn City in the future.

A District fallen from grace was once known for their production of luxury jewels and the training of Panem's Law enforcement. These days however, the air contains the faint smell of trash, if it is blowing in the right direction. Mines that had been once mined for gems have been converted to landfills. The academies that once housed Peacekeepers have been renovated into Recycling Plants. Despite their downfall, the wealthy citizens remain largely unaffected, supported by the wealth they acquired before the shift. However these changes have made it evident of the class division that splits the district. Though the district still remains a career district, the changes are a constant reminder of Panem's disappointment in them.
Industry Waste Management
Mayor Victor Strauss nessa garner ᥫ᭡ d6 [kiah]
An industry change has been no help on the pollution levels in Three - now there is the added noise pollution of the roaring engines of trains and motor vehicles. Three has not ventured away from its electronics production as the Capitol’s desire for the more quieter EVs is now at a high demand. Transportation and technologies such as computers and handheld devices are becoming more widely available across Panem but the range of quality varies depending on District. As the production remains high, Three is quickly reaping in the benefits with a now healthy economy at its disposal.

The only coastal District, Four knows the advantage its location gives it and has used it well to become one of the primary food production Districts. Citizens here are renowned for their skill in gathering seafood, from fish to scallops. As with any other District, nearly all of the catch is taken to the Capitol to be redistributed (mostly to Capitolites, of course), but they always have enough left over for the health of the population as a whole. Partly as a result, Four is the lowest District known for its Careers, who despite being poorer than their One and Two counterparts have proven themselves just as deadly.

Following the death of one of their victors, Five’s only expanded further in their scope of energy supply. Hydro Dams, Solar Fields, and Wind Turbines have sprouted out of Five as far as the eye can see. Pollution still lingers heavily in the district, but the adjustment to different acclimations of power has made Five an important district for the entirety of Panem itself. The oil district still continues to be booming with business as the expansion of their industry brings chemical refineries into the district; taking over the mantle from Nine. With much more opportunity and the reliance of Five as the power center of Panem, the economy has expanded past the scope of their original design. The exotic animals industry of the past remains as a distant memory to most in Five nowadays.

Following the aftermath of the Rose Plague, the demand for medicine is higher now than it has ever been before. District Six has been the heart of medicine for many years but the industry is beginning to evolve with new technologies and the ambitious demands of the Capitol. Colleges and hospitals are being renovated across the District as Capitol elites make their bases here. While morale remains low following the destruction of the plague and recent bombing attacks, the appreciation for healthcare workers from the rest of Panem pushes them towards innovation. It is time Six evolves like its neighbors.
Mayor Parson Cham frankel
Like those of many other Districts, the denizens of District Seven make good use of their natural surroundings- in this case, the nation's most dense and expansive forests- to carve out their place in Panem's ever-efficient economy. Nearly all wood products, be it raw lumber or the softest of paper, originate here, and outside of the Capitol there is no place in Panem with finer architects.

Since the Dark Days, District 8 has always been a dormant, peaceful and obedient district in the hands of the Capitol. Once in its smoggy shadow, the district of textiles has slowly emerged a spectacle scene in fashion of all industries. Home to fur coats and feather boas, the warehouses here have been upgraded to produce all things beauty as well: jewelry, watches, skin products and make up. Pollution may be at an all time high in District 8, but the wealth may be too. Despite this, the mindset of its civilians has hardly budged: refine, refine, refine.

Since the Dark Days, District Nine has been a district filled with unease and rebellious intentions. After many years of attempts to quell the violence of Nine, the district has become the center point in an unspoken war between the gangs residing there and the law of Panem. Drastic actions came with drastic measures for the district. As quickly as the Capitol could, they funded a switching of industries. Nine’s streets almost overnight became filled with Peacekeeper Training Academies, Peacekeeper Housing, and other official Law Enforcement buildings. The factories of the once highly prominent refineries of Nine closing down almost overnight pushing the district citizens themselves to find jobs within this new industry. As growing tensions rise, so does the amount of peacekeepers 9 creates. Viva La Panem!

Though once more intellectual, District Ten is the ranching, farming, and breeding center of Panem. Citizens here work in close correlation with their neighbors in District Eleven, helping each other with agricultural technologies and systems so that both can meet their food quotas for the Capitol and still have enough left over for themselves. Citizens here aren't exactly wealthy enough to import food from District Four, after all.
Mayor Adrián Novak MATTIO
The other half of Panem's agricultural industry, District Eleven handles all of the farming. Its vast territory, probably the biggest in Panem, has only the occasional city or town and is mostly covered with orchards, fields, and other places where plants can be grown in the necessary quantities to pay the Capitol and still manage to feed the District. Easily one of the poorest Districts, Eleven is ragged even in the richest of areas (even their Town Square has the feel of being run-down), and despite being surrounded by food the people here are often hungry.
Mayor Vasco Izar zori
Far and away the most impoverished of the twelve districts, living in District 12 has always been a fight for resources. Even as their mining industry booms with new found shafts of precious metals, their economy still struggles compared to that of their neighboring lower district. Food, water and clothes may come as granted elsewhere, but here in District 12 one might consider them lucky just to have two out of three. Despite it all, the people of the district are ever resilient, and bare grueling labor with poor work conditions just to make it by.

The main area of District Thirteen’s living sector, the Atrium is filled with a multitude of shops, vendors, and different spaces for the citizens of Thirteen to congregate and socialize. On its outskirts are Thirteen’s living spaces, with a myriad of apartment buildings creating a closely knit community.
Born from District Thirteen’s intense militaristic culture, Kostas and Ames Academy stand tall amongst the buildings and landscape of Thirteen’s living sector, their unique design and colors lending to their recognizability and prestige. These academies are known to turn their recruits into the bravest of Thirteen’s defenders, though it is not done without intense training rivaling that of Panem’s Career districts.
The depths of District Thirteen are home to intense scientific researchers and their bases; these buildings are dark and intimidating, they have a dangerous sense of allure that entices even the most innocent of Thirteen’s citizens into their walls… but access to this quarter is tightly restricted to authorised personnel only. Contained within this place is a staggering pile of nuclear weaponry, guarded by armed forces. Here, military technology extends far beyond that of physical arms, with intricate drawings of future missile models and strategic deployment plans plastered across tables and walls as far as the eye can see. There are branches of rooms extending off the main workspace which house military officials and their offices, as well as secretive researchers conducting meetings about the future developments of their munitions. Weapons, technology and science have their meeting point in this sector — so it’s best to keep anything you may see or hear to yourself.
To the rest of Panem, District Thirteen is long since cold and dead, a sometimes-smoking ruin unfit for any kind of life. Beneath the surface, however, it's alive and kicking. Underground networks of apartments, roads, and shops are built into the ground- an entire veritable city hidden from the capitol and protected by weapons left over from Thirteen's true purpose- not coal mining, but weapons research. A rebellion is in the works; for now it's very young, and very tentative, but perhaps someday Thirteen will once more rise up to rebel against the Capitol, and the only order that most of Panem's citizens have ever known.
There used to be a thirteenth district in Panem, but due to a rebellion that arose, it was destroyed. Runaways, wanderers, and avoxes are usually the only people who see these ruins, besides Capitol representatives that are sent to make sure everything is running smoothly...
A newly constructed building just outside of District 2, the Detention Center is relatively small concrete structure. The complex is primarily underground, made up of cells, peacekeeper housing, and an 'interrogation' center. Breaking out is completely impossible; breaking in would be excruciatingly difficult, and probably result in becoming one of the detainees.
