The Hunger Games: District 7 & 8

District 7 is one of the districts of the nation Panem. District Seven provides lumber for the Capitol, and the tributes of District 7 are known to be good with axes. District 7 is apparently covered in large portions of pine forest as Johanna Mason comments that pine needles "smell like home."

District 8's principal industry is the production of textiles and clothing. They have at least one factory that is primarily used for making Peacekeeper uniforms. Incomes in District 8 must be fairly low as Twill mentions that she puts in a four hour shift in a Peacekeeper Uniform factory after her full time job as a teacher. Bonnie, a child, also mentions putting in a four hour shift after she gets out of school. District 8 must also be in a cold place because Twill mentions the factory she works in as cold. On page 142 of Catching Fire, Katniss describes District 8 "as an ugly, urban place stinking of industrial fumes, the people housed in run down tenaments, barely a blade of grass in sight".

According to the official Hunger Games movie website (, the following jobs are offered in District 8:
  • Teacher
  • Factory worker
  • Weaver
  • Dress maker
  • Designer
  • Warehouse manager
