District 1 is one of the 13 districts of Panem. It is one of three districts known as the Career districts. This district is among the more wealthy and privileged of the 12 outlying districts, and also one of the few districts that trains its children to become tributes for the Hunger Games. Although this is illegal it goes unpunished. In The Hunger Games Katniss Everdeen comments on how people in District 1 give their children the most ridiculous names upon hearing some of the Careers call Glimmer's name.
District 1's trade is making luxury items for the Capitol. As such for the Opening Ceremonies of the Hunger Games the tributes from this district are often wearing the most attractive costumes, and thereby attract a lot of sponsors early on.
