The Hunger Games: District 3 & 4

District 3's main industry is electronics. They specialize in televisions and explosives. Before the rebellion it was one of the richest districts in Panem. In Catching Fire during the victory tour, Katniss notices this is one of the districts along with 8 and 4 that shows the most happiness to see her, suggesting that they are one 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. Most of its inhabitants work in factories and are very well adept with engineering. The bread from this district is bite-sized square-shaped rolls.

District 4 is one of the wealthier 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, seems happy to see her, suggesting that it is a rebellious district.

Being one of the wealthier 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 grown and raised to win the Games, making them stronger and much more capable of winning than the average tribute. The bread is a salty, fish-shaped loaf, tinted green by seaweed.

Information obtained from:


  1. Reading these bios makes me kinda sad. It's such a shame that so many kids die each year in these horrible games. And we don't even get to know their names.

  2. It is sad, Lan. When I was writing up these posts and reading about the tributes, I tried to remember where in the books they were and the most thing I could remember were their deaths. The one I can remember the most was Foxface, even though that isn't her name. ;)


I would love to hear what you think about my reviews. Please leave a link to let me know who you are!
