Fairfax County, with 407 square miles, is directly across the Potomac River from Washington DC.

The county is among the highest-income counties in the country and was the first county in the country to have a median household income over $100,000. The economy of Fairfax County revolves around professional services and technology with many residents working directly for the government of for government contractors. Fairfax County is also home to a number of major employers.

The Fairfax County Public Schools system has a budget in excess of $2 billion and spends approximately $13,000 on each student.
