Government contracting, military, and federal government make up a significant portion of the job industry here. Politically, Fairfax is more liberal than conservative. Spiritually, there is a wide array of faiths here from all around the world, as well as many agnostics and atheists. There is no shortage of multicultural experiences, and this is a historic region surrounded by civil war sites. The school system regularly ranks as one of the highest in the country, with a wide array of opportunities for students. The greatest part of living in Northern Virginia (NoVA) is the rich diversity of experiences and people.
