Oh if we're talking about America, "The Empire", I don't see how you can think of us as an "empire" until the expansion (imperialism) really started kicking in around the time Texas was annexed. We annexed a bunch a crap between then and the early 1900s with the annexation of the Panama Canal Zone.
We still have a few more years to play out on the "200 year Empire" cycle.
