Want to live the good life? Move to Washington, D.C. Or, specifically, to its suburbs.

Six of America’s 10 wealthiest counties lie within a stone’s throw of the Beltway. Plenty of lucrative jobs are available in tech contracting and other professional services, while other big sources of employment are local school systems and major federal agencies like the Department of Defense.

None of these counties are in California or Texas. Nor does Silicon Valley or oil money make an appearance here. None are in New York, either, although Wall Street money does show up in a couple of wealthy New Jersey counties, such as Hunterdon and Somerset, that make the list.

Forbes ranked the nation’s wealthiest counties by median household income data from the Census Bureau’s Small Area Income and Poverty Estimates for 2012, the last full year for which data is available.

In the following slides, check out the top 10 counties that made it on Forbes 2014 list.
