The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (2013) Viral - District 12
Coal still accounts for a vast amount of the energy that Panem consumes, and District 12 is the source of all the country's coal.
Panem wasn't built by one district alone, and it will take all of us to realize the great future that lies ahead! On the occasion of the 75th Hunger Games The Capitol invites you to join in recognizing the uniqueness of every district with these informational shorts. So sit back, learn about your fellow citizens, and remember: viewing is mandatory.
District 12's industry is coal. District 12 is located somewhere near what was the Appalachian mountains. The district has the distinction of being one of the poorest districts, if not the outright poorest, in all of Panem. Before Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark won the 74th Hunger Games, the district has not had a winner of the Hunger Games emerge from the ranks of its residents for twenty-four years since Haymitch Abernathy, a raging alcoholic and an embarrassment to the district, won the 50th Hunger Games. Before Haymitch, there was only one other victor from District 12 from an unspecified number of years previous.
