** [[PresidentEvil Edward Butler]] still considers himself the legitimate government of the United States, even after being driven off the mainland and into being holed-up in a fortified Guantanamo.
** One timeline sees a more successful Soviet space program put several space stations in orbit, operated by hardline Communists. When the Soviet Union collapses as per OTL, they refuse to recognize it, and declare themselves the true authority of Russia, awaiting the time that communism retakes control. Only North Korea recognizes them as legitimate.
** The American Overseas Republic is a collective of oversea embassies, diplomatic missions, and military bases that refuse to recognize the authority of a United States that is now ruled by a rogue right-wing government.

* Following the fall of Richmond, The Confederate States of America formed a short "Government in Exile" by moving departments into a train of box cars. A few of the leadership did make it to Brazil and set up an exile government community (exile's descendants still live in the area but as citizens of Brazil). Given the ad hoc nature of the Confederate Government, many of it's cabinet leadership felt it was this from the get go. One such member went so far as to declare that his entire department existed in his hat.
