白岡市(しらおかし)は、埼玉県の中東部にある人口約5万1千人の市である。東京都特別区部への通勤率は21.3%、さいたま市への通勤率は14.7%(いずれも平成22年国勢調査)。概要農地が広がる一方、東京都心から約40kmに位置することからベッドタウンとしての特徴も有しており、1960年代から1990年代にかけて人口が急増した。1980年代以降新白岡駅周辺において白岡ニュータウンが整備されていたことから、前身である白岡町の人口は一貫して緩やかな増加を続け、2010年(平成22年)に行われた国勢調査において市制施行条件の一つである人口5万人を突破した。2011年(平成23年)4月1日に市制施行準備室が設置され、2012年(平成24年)10月1日に町単独で市制を施行した。市内には田畑や果樹園、森林など多くの緑が残されており、東武動物公園の一部は当市内に所属する。交通はJR宇都宮線白岡駅、新白岡駅、首都圏中央連絡自動車道(「圏央道」・国道468号)白岡菖蒲ICがあり、付近に東北自動車道久喜ICがある。商業地域は、主に白岡駅・新白岡駅の周辺及び埼玉県道3号さいたま栗橋線沿いを中心に存在している。地理関東平野の中央に位置し、山地は無く、ほぼ平坦な地形であるが、市内は台地と低地が入り組んでおり坂道も点在している。西の境を元荒川が流れており、市内を中川水系の小河川が複数縦断する。東部には大宮台地の支台である白岡台地・慈恩寺台地が存在する。
