Established in 1742 and the most populous jurisdiction in the state, the County of Fairfax, in Virginia had a population of 1,081,726 as of the 2010 census. The county seat is the City of Fairfax, though because it is an independent city under Virginia law, the city of Fairfax is not part of Fairfax County. Herndon, Virginia is the largest town. Fairfax was the first U.S. county to reach a six-figure median household income and has the second-highest median household income of any local jurisdiction in the United States after neighboring Loudoun County. The county is home to the headquarters of intelligence agencies such as the Central Intelligence Agency, National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency, and National Reconnaissance Office, as well as the National Counterterrorism Center and Office of the Director of National Intelligence. The county is also home to seven Fortune 500 companies, including three with Falls Church addresses; although Falls Church is its own independent municipality. It was named for Thomas Fairfax, 6th Lord Fairfax of Cameron, proprietor of the Northern Neck.

Fairfax County is bounded on the north and southeast by the Potomac River.
