District 13 was supposedly bombed and destroyed before the first annual Hunger Games at the end of the Dark Days war, but it was hinted in Catching Fire that they had survived, and in Mockingjay it is confirmed that District 13 had become, literally, an underground district when the population retreated to bunkers.
District 4. District 4 is one of the wealthiest 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.
Panem is a nation that was established during an unknown time period in a post-apocalyptic world. It is situated primarily in North America, and the Capitol is located in an area formerly known as the Rocky Mountains, as it states in the first book of The Hunger Games trilogy.
District 8 is one of the thirteen districts of Panem. Its main industry is textile production, and they have at least one factory that is used for making Peacekeeper uniforms. Katniss describes District 8 as "an urban place stinking of industrial fumes, the people housed in run-down tenements.
The Capitol started the Hunger Games the next year as a way to show the citizens of Panem who was really in charge, and to prevent a similar rebellion from happening in the future.
In the third and final book, Mockingjay, Peeta is held captive by President Snow and used against Katniss. During his captivity, he was tortured, beaten, and hijacked using tracker jacker venom to distort his memories of Katniss. The Capitol interrogated him for answers he did not have and was tortured even more.
Peeta chose to hunt with the Careers to protect Katniss. He was to lead them away from her. Also, he was able to hunt with them because they were going to use him to look for Katniss, to hunt her down. Basically, he was using the Careers' intention against them.
The moment when the tribute becomes a victor." Victors are tributes who have won previous Hunger Games. Because of this, they receive income from the Capitol for life, are given a special status in their districts, and are allowed to live in the part of their district called the Victors' Village with their families.
