District 17 was founded sometime before the Drowning Games.
The PeopleEditMost people enjoy underwater activities. They normally have black hair and green eyes, and stand around average in height. They are some of the most beautiful people in Panem (along with districts 16 and 1), due to great dieting and flawless skin.
They study futuristic sciences, such as technology the western districts never think of, and medical aids that can improve health and fight disease and grave wounds. Due to this, this district is by far the healthiest, and one of the most powerful in the world.
Being located on the coast of Diver's Bay, District 17 citizens enjoy swimming, freediving, scuba diving, spear fishing, and water sports. On land, they enjoy technology entertainment such as tv, video games, and others.
