* District 12: Low and poor enough to be beneath notice, clearly the Lumpenproleteriat. The fact that the protagonist comes this place despite Marxists ussually looking down on the lumpenproleteriat suggests AnAesop towards other DirtyCommies about even degraded and degenerated elements being capable of achieving class consciousness.

*District 13: Plotting to overthrow the Capitol from the shadows, clearly the Professional Revolutionaries and the vanguard of the proletariat.

Lastly the assassination of President Coin at the end of the story symbolizes the necessity to the workers to prevent any Bonapartist elements from taking over after the establishment of the Dictatorship of the Proletariat.

District 1: Workers who have a higher standard of living then the rest of the proletariat, by virtue of the sectors they work in, and have a better relationship with the ruling classes clearly the Labor Aristocracy.

District 2: The Military Caste, as they provide the bulk of peacekeepers; they aren't a perfect analogue to the Prussian aristocratic officers as their status is below that of District 1 and they serve mostly as canon fodder but it comes close enough.

District 3: Engineers and programmers, probably the 'Bourgeois specialists'.

District 4: Fishermen, they come the closest to the Petite Bourgeois as they own their own means of production (their boats).

Districts 5,6,7 and 8: (Electricity, transportation, wood and textiles) the Proletariat.

District 9 and 11: (grain and agriculture) the Peasantry obviously.

[[WMG: The series is actually Trotskyite propaganda.]]
When thinking about conspiracy theorists shoehorning their political beliefs into literature, I noticed some similarities between the Districts and the classes from Marxist historical analysis. So I thought why not shoehorn someone-elses' political beliefs into a piece of literature.

*The capitol: a rather idle group living off the surplus labor of others', clearly the Haute Bourgeoisie or the Finance Aristocracy. The lack of people 'promoting' into the capitol indicates a metaphor for a hypothetical 'advanced' capitalism, wherein all sectors have matured into being controlled by oligopolies, which crush any attempts of new entrepreneurs into reaching the top using their massive economics of scale.

District 1: Workers who have a higher standard of living then the rest of the proletariat, by virtue of the sectors they work in, and have a better relationship with the ruling classes clearly the Labor Aristocracy.

*** But, then it is located in Quebec and it was never mentioned that they speak French in District 13 (to bad actually as a francophone District 13 looks cool to me). Though it might have been resettled with Anglo-saxons by the Capitol before the Dark Days.
