"Electric, solar, and nuclear - District 5 harnesses the energy of the earth and the sky in order to power our great nation."
―Description from The Hunger Games: Tribute Guide[src]

District 5 is one of the thirteen districts of Panem. Its main industry is power and electricity. Therefore, this district is responsible for generating the power of the entire nation. District 5 has a huge dam used for this purpose, which rebels in the district bombed and destroyed, causing mass loss of power in the Capitol during the start of the Second Rebellion.

Known Tributes

The male tribute during the 74th Hunger Games died during the bloodbath at the Cornucopia. Katniss nicknamed the female tribute "Foxface." She survived by stealing food from other tributes in order to keep herself alive, as well as her quick, witty decisions. Ironically, it was her strategy for survival that eventually killed her. She stole some berries from Peeta Mellark's collection. Sadly, she mistakenly ate the berries, which were poisonous nightlock. She placed 4th out of 24. Katniss Everdeen notes that if they were to give out a test, Foxface would be the smartest by a mile.

The tributes during the 75th Hunger Games were both past victors. The male was an alcoholic and vomited on the sword-fighting arena during training. In the arena, the male is killed during the bloodbath at the Cornucopia by Finnick Odair. He placed 24th out of 24. The female lived slightly longer. Katniss hears her scream when the tsunami hits, drowning and killing her.

Trivia

  • It's unknown, but unlikely, seeing as the male tribute attacked Finnick and Katniss, that the District 5 victors were part of the rebel alliance to free Katniss as they weren't mentioned as one of the districts that took part.
  • In the last two Hunger Games, both males were killed in the bloodbath but both females survived the bloodbath, the opposite of District 10.
  • District 5 is possibly one of the more wealthier districts, such as District 1 or District 2 due to the low amount of residents who take tesserae. This may also attribute to the theory of District 5 not being as impoverished as outlying Districts (10, 11 and 12).
  • District 5 was the 5th - 10th district to pry from Capitol rule.
  • District 1, District 5 and District 9 are the only districts without a known rebel.
  • It can be implied that District 5 would have to be located in western Panem around the Rocky Mountains as it would need to power the Capitol. This can also be supported by how District 12, which lies in the Appalachian Mountains in eastern Panem, does not have enough electricity to light their homes or the electric fence which surrounds the district.
  • According to the Capitol.PN, District 5 has 15 power plants in operation with a population of 134,345, making it the fifth largest district, in terms of population.
  • According to the Capitol.PN, District 5 claims 2,881 in tesserae, making it the third richest district. 
  • It is considered a wealthy district.
