I want to do a horror novel (after I finish the one I'm on: 4K left to go!) about an uncharted town. The government discovers that there's a town where people have moved to recently and haven't registered the town name, paid taxes, adhered to government regs etc (People there don't make birth certificates and are under-the-radar). The POV character will be a census bureau worker or someone like that who ventures to the town after the government realizes said town exists to scope things out and get federal data. While there, he realizes the town is..."strange," supernatural, and people there have their ways of making sure they aren't interfered with. It's meant to be a horror story that also pokes fun at intrusive government policies, overly high taxes etc (the reason why said people made this town in the first place). Now that I've explained the plot a little, here is my question. What types of actions would the govt take upon discovering a totally off-the-charts city like this? What would be standard procedure for putting the town on the map so to speak? I'm not sure what my government worker MC would be sent there to do exactly...thanks! Merry Christmas everyone!
