What District Would Iowa Be in the Hunger Games?
May the odds ever be in Iowa's favor!
The hit dystopian series is making a resurgence. It's been eight years since the original series concluded and we said goodbye to the characters played by Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, and Woody Harrelson.
Now, fans are diving back into the world of Panem with the prequel movie 'The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes.' This story follows an eighteen-year-old Coriolanus Snow (the President of Panem and the ultimate villain in the original series) sixty-four years before Katniss's games.
Oscar nominee Rachel Zegler plays the District 12 tribute who Snow has to work with.
What District Would Iowa Be?
This entire series takes place in a dystopian version of the United States of America. All of Panem is split into twelve separate districts. Each state as we know it is located in one of these districts. All of them are meant to contribute some sort of resource or specialize in some sort of product to produce.
Here are the twelve districts and what they are known for:
District 1: Luxury Items
District 2: Masonry
District 3: Technology
District 4: Fishing
District 5: Electricity
District 6: Transportation
District 7: Lumber
District 8: Textiles
District 9: Grain
District 10: Livestock
District 11: Agriculture
District 12: Mining/Coal
I think the general assumption that we all might have is that Iowa is probably located somewhere in one of the more farming focused districts. Initially, I thought Iowa would definitely be located in districts nine, ten, or eleven.
However, after going to the official source (aka the Hunger Games franchise wiki page) there is a somewhat definite answer, and it honestly surprised me.
According to a map that was on the mobile game 'The Hunger Games Adventures,' Iowa is located in District 3. Other states in this District are Illinois, Indiana, and Minnesota.
Some notable characters from this District include Beetee Latier and Wiress.
