In the United States and other countries, the county seat is the capital of a county. It is where the government for the county is found. The county seat is usually the largest town or city in the county, oldest, or most central town or city. In Louisiana, Counties are called Parishes. Because of this, they have Parish seats instead of county seats.

In the United Kingdom, the name county town is used instead.
