District 5 is one of the fourteen districts of Panem.
District 5 has a lack of official culture due to its mixed demographics. The original people of District 5, before heavy immigration from other districts and Avox, had a few cultural definements.
This includes a unique hand gesture in the place of handshaking. They would do something similiar to a midieval friendship grip in which both would grap eachother's forearm, but all the way up to the elbow.
They also had a tradition that each family would often come together for an annual family dinner, as they acted like clans.
Today, heavy district immigration has created a mix of culture, and the Avox's incapabilty of speaking has created a custom for one not to raise one's voice, even when angry.
The mute population is also high, leading to the reinvention of sign language, but atleast Avox muteness isn't hereditary.
Scarlet Tacito is the current mayor of District 5. She was one of the candidates for the presidential elections, but lost in the pre-elections.
After the war, each city began to produce its own power.Without a necessity to continue with the same industry, District 5 became a heavily populated place of commerce. People from all of Panem came to District 5 and contributed with their talent. Avox immigration from the Capitol was heavy, their many talents contributing to District 5's wealth as well. A small remnant of their old lifestyle os that each home makes its own power with solar panels.
"Electric, solar and nuclear - District 5 harnesses the energy of the earth and the sky in order to power our great nation"
