Jämtland Coonty consists o primarily the provinces o Jämtland an Härjedalen, tho minor pairts o Hälsingland an Ångermanland are includit an aw, alang wi sma uninhabitit auries in Lapland an Dalarna.


The main aim o the Coonty Admeenistrative Buird is tae fulfil the goals set in naitional politics bi the Parliament an the govrenment, tae coordinate the interests o the coonty, tae promote the development o the coonty, tae establish regional goals an safeguard the due process o law in the handlin o each case. The Coonty Admeenistrative Buird is a Govrenment Agency heidit bi a Govrenor. See Leet o Jämtland Govrenors.


Jämtland Coonty is spairsely populatit an mair nor ane third o the population live on the kintraside, makkin Jämtland Coonty the seicont lairgest rural region in Swaden, efter Gotland Coonty, tho a majority o the population live in the rather densely populatit region surroondin lake Storsjön, commonly cried Storsjöbygden, "the Storsjö destrict/kintraside".


The coonty is dominatit bi the Swadish Social Democratic Pairty an the Swedish Rural Centre Pairty, which is unique in Swaden, but corresponds tae the situation in the borderin Norse coonty o Nord-Trøndelag. The coonty is rather contrastive in the poleetical field. While the municipality association an a majority o the municipalities are govrened bi leeberal-conservative (Swadish: borgerlig, lit. "bourgeois") majorities or bi coalitions owersteppin the bloc border, the coonty cooncil is red-green an the Social Democrats receive three oot o five mandates tae the Swedish parliament.
