The Creeperian Government-in-Exile (Creeperian Spanish: Gobierno Creeperiano en Exilo; GOCREX), officially the Holy Traditionalist Empire of Creeperopolis (Santo Imperio Tradicionalista de Creeperópolis), was the proclaimed government-in-exile in Creeperopolis. The government-in-exile claimed to be the legitimate government of Creeperopolis in the aftermath of the 2003 Creeperian coup d'état which deposed Emperor Alfonso VI and his government and replaced him with his son, Alexander II. The government-in-exile was established by supporters of Alfonso VI, referred to as Alfonsists, and was headquartered in central Lyoa where it had the support of anti-government rebels.
The government declared Alfonso VI's third son, Salvador Martínez Hernández, as their Emperor, although "Salvador IV" never recognized their proclamation. The government-in-exile's proclamation of Salvador as their Emperor likely contributed to his assassination in 2004, which has since been suspected to have been conducted by the National Intelligence Directorate (DINA). After his assassination, Antonio Gisbert Alcabú declared himself as acting Regent.
Gisbert Alcabú was captured by the Creeperian government on 17 June 2020 in Operation Banana and was executed the following day. He was succeeded by Andrés Andino Cazalla, but he was unable to hold on to power and an internal power struggle ensued on 27 June 2020, ending the government-in-exile. Some factions surrendered to Lyoan and Creeperian authorities, while others continued armed resistance, some remaining loyal to the Free Creeperian Army while others splintering off to form the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Creeperopolis. Since the fall of the government, the remaining Creeperian rebels have been considered a "minor belligerent" in the Lyoan conflict.
