Create label classes using Python, or is there a simpler way?

I am working on a land ownership map for my rural municipality. I need to create a new label class for each section, since I need the key numbering for the labels to reset for each section. 

 

I have 324 sections for the municipality, and creating a new label class and key numbering group for each section would be an incredibly tedious and long manual task.

 

Is there any chance that I could create label classes and key numbering groups iteratively using a Python script? 

 

Or, is there a way to achieve this outcome in a simpler way?

 

 

Here's an example of what I am doing. I will convert the labels to annotations, and move the key numbering labels to the left side of the map to act as a legend to correspond to the numbers within the polygons that are too small to label.
