District 1 is among the most wealthy districts of Panem. Its main industry is making luxury products, including jewelry, for the Capitol. Therefore, District 1 has a completely good relationship with the Capitol, although it is still not forgiven from the annual Hunger Games. It appears that parents from District 1 prefer to name their children after these special items and their features; names just like Marvel and Glimmer are a depiction of their “gorgeous” nature. Children in District 1 typically appear to be very proud of playing in the Hunger Games, and are also some of the group of tributes who band jointly to pick off the less strong opponents, called Careers. On her Success Travel, Katniss Everdeen described that she sensed anxious entering District 1, because she killed each of the district’s tributes in the 74th Hunger Games. In addition, she says just how their outfits in the Tribute March are always the ideal, and how silly the district names are for their kids.
The following professions are available in District 1:
- Hair Stylist
The tributes from District 1 are Careers, who practice rough for the Games and volunteer to participate. They normally are overconfident, like the majority of of the Careers, but this barely makes a difference; they are perfectly trained that they can quickly alter their frame of mind if required. There are 2 known tributes from District 1.
