Modoc County is located in the northeast corner of California, bounded by Oregon to the north and Nevada to the east. The 2010 census counted 9,686 people. Alturas, the current county seat, is the only incorporated city in Modoc County.

A large portion of Modoc County is federal land. Several federal agencies, including the United States Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management, National Park Service, Bureau of Indian Affairs, and the United States Fish and Wildlife Service, have employees assigned to the area, and their operations are a significant part of the economy and services in this rural area.
