Create a module object, preload its namespace, then exec the module's code, 

$ python3
Python 3.4.3 (default, Nov 12 2018, 22:25:49) 
[GCC 4.8.4] on linux
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> import sys, types
>>> module = types.ModuleType("module")
>>> module.x = 42
>>> exec("print(x)\ndef f(): return x * x", module.__dict__)
>>> sys.modules["module"] = module
>>> import module
>>> module.f()

The importlib probably has an official way, but I've yet to wrap my head 
around that part of Python.
