District 6 is one of the 13 districts of Panem. This district's principal industry is transportation. It was heavily bombed by the Capitol's Air Forces. It is hinted that having a Morphling addiction may have been a district-wide issue as Katniss nicknamed the victors of District 6 "Morphlings" because they were addicted to the painkiller. Most victors from this district take this drug to forget what they experienced in their Games. District 6 is also one of the more rebellious districts, as the victors from this district were part of the victor alliance to keep Katniss alive. It is mentioned that this district is rebellious after the breakout from the arena by Plutarch Heavensbee.
