The American Empire, also known by its de jure name, the United States of America, is a powerful empire that was founded sometime during the 1950s-1970s as the United States became corrupted. The American Empire is currently the third largest and most powerful empire in the world, radically taking over many countries with their Americanization Tactics, invented by Emperor (or President if you are a conservative) Ronald Reagan.
The American Empire also claims to be a fair democracy, but in reality, this is in no way plausible. It only claims to run on a democratic system as an attempt to make the people happy. And many other nations are more successful at Happiness than the American Empire.
The Empire was being created from the ashes of the old United States during the 1950s to 1970s, and was declared an empire in secret, likely by Ronald Reagan.
During the 1990s, the Empire grew further and it's army and mass media machines became extremely efficient. Average, everyday American minds were being controlled and brainwashed, converted into the newer America Version 0.98, claiming to be better and faster. However, some thought it would be a downgrade, crippleware, and another system with strings attached. These wise individuals missed the upgrade and took a Linux or Macintosh distribution instead.
By 2000, most people's brains were wirelessly plugged into servers running the America Version 0.98. Emperor George Bush II decided that it was time to leave beta stage and start and fully distribute America Version 1.00 as a stable release, but while all was going well and minds were being patched by Conservatives, something terrible hit the American Empire, the September 11, 2001 attacks. This considerably slowed down the version 1 distribution. However, Bush decided to wage war with the attackers, who were claimed to be stationed in Iraq and Afghanistan. The Empire's massive army went into Iraq and Afghanistan and ravaged through the region, looking for a few farmers with guns and bombs. If they sat down, talked about it with a good guidance counselor, maybe they wouldn't need to be bullying each other.
Others say that the War was done for the sake of the entertainment of the Emperor, which was why a movie was secretly produced and played to the elite class.
