comment Which polygons surround this point? A practical case of political geography
census.gov/govs/go/historical_data.html for census, and for geocoder that would be geocoder.us/help/faq.shtml

Apologies, should have given the census of governments URL in that first answer. Here it is: census.gov/econ/overview/go0100.html

BradHards - I will likely use geocoder.us to start with and eventually reimplement it on my own servers before this ever gets popular enough to strain their generosity.

L_Holcombe - The answer to your question is not quite precise, though the surface answer is. I am starting with the results of the twice a decade census of governments, which is conducted via well established rules as to what is a government and what is not. The project is big enough without adding in the quasi governments in phase I.
