District 10 is one of the 16 Districts of Panem ruled over by the Capitol. Its main industry is livestock, and provides meat to the Capitol and the rest of Panem. The District is one of the poorest in Panem, but ironically is viewed favorably by the Capitol due to its meat production. District 10 is also one of the smaller Districts in terms of population, but must be one of the larger Districts geographically, due to the land needed for pastures, farms, ranches, dairies, and slaughterhouses.
The children of this District start work young, usually on a farm or in a dairy. Due to the hard manual labor, this often proves helpful to the tributes of 10. However, the tributes of this District are still some of the most under-preforming tributes.
