Katniss's district is a very poor district not like the other sort of richie type ones. Since this book is in the future instead of North America it is called Panem and right in the center is the Capital. The Capital is very wealthy. Then around The Capital there are districts and there are 13 districts and Katniss is on the 12th one. But they don't have wealth like most of the other districts. By the way this is an amazing book.
