Steven | 2 comments very fuzzy on the details, was a short childrens fiction novel (similar to lord of the flies) about kids that run their own fake town in the neighborhood with a government/services/jail/etc. I think the book may have centered around the mayor of this fake town

read the book sometime around 2004 as a 4th or 5th grader.

That would have been my guess too. Steven do you recall why the kids had to run this town -- were the adult all dead, gone, vanished, not paying any attention?

Steven | 2 comments Thanks for the responses. I do believe that there were still adults around, and the kids just had their town in the woods or something that they would spend time in after school/all summer long kind of thing.
