President Snow scored a landslide victory in his reelection battle last night, winning the unanimous vote of Panem Parliament.
"The safety and welfare of each citizen is my utmost priority. Panem's successful future is our common goal. We must all work together to do what's needed to move this country forward. My success is your success." Snow said.
A triumphant Snow greeted his supporters in the Capitol this morning as reaction from the elated districts poured in.
Providing Luxury Goods to the Capitol.
We Keep the Capitol Beautiful!
Much of the beauty of our dear Capitol is due to the intrepid miners, manufacturers, and craftsmen of District 1. After registering for their first Hunger Games lottery at age twelve, every D1 child signs up for a trade school. Usually training to enter their parent’s profession, the children learn their academy’s discipline. Each trade school has a specialty and several mandatory classes, such as economics and trade, which all the youths study. The future jewelers, milliners and haberdashers start their apprenticeship at age sixteen and have, on average, mastered their craft by the time their first child is born.
While all goods produced by the Districts are used nationally, District 1’s influence has the widest reach. Under the guidance of elite Capitol stylists, D1’s design plans are sent to its eleven sisters. From the caviar harvested in District 4, to the luxury cars engineered in District 3 and assembled in District 6, a multitude of District exports are instigated in District 1.
Although D11 grows incredibly delicious and nutritious produce, the genial climate of D1 allows it to host an expanse of vineyards that cultivate delicate fruit that would not survive the gentlest of D6 transport. Vintners of this wealthy District produce the nation-famous Snow grape, eponymous to our proud leader. Grown in the vineyards of the District’s southwest, this tender fruit is known for its robust, ethereal flavor and its lingering aftertaste. Snow Wine is a staple of New Year’s parties across the nation; every family in Panem must indulge in this annual luxury.
While the clothing distributed throughout the nation is skillfully handmade in D8, the denizens of D1 make every original garment and accessory that has the honor of going to the Capitol. There, the pieces are sold in Capitol boutiques or are shipped straight to the Commissioner of Personal Propriety for distribution to the First Family’s Stylists.
The fruit of District 1’s labors of love adorn the Panem elite. We would like thank our Nation’s first District for continually feeding the Capitol’s hunger for splendor!
District 1, a shining jewel in Panem’s crown!

The pride of Panem's technological and engineering might, District 3 proudly accepted their first Snow Award for District Excellence. Due to recent innovations in the Panem-wide Hyperrail system, and breakthroughs in hovercraft technology, President Snow announced that the District had earned the prestigious recognition at a private gathering of District officials and Capitol luminaries.
"The Capitol and the good people of this country have come a long way," said President Snow to the group of 50-or-so officials, "and much of that success comes directly from the hard work and ingenuity of our third district."
