No, the United States are a rebelled colony of the British Empire. If this you believe this to be an opinion rather than fact. Many historians will agree that the United States is not now or has been an empire as the general agreement for the definition for an Empire is that it requires a monarch.

Yes, indeed the U.S.A is an Empire, America became an empire before the turn of the century in 1898 during the Spanish American War. During the war and even after it, the U.S. held power over multiple islands like, Cuba, the Philippines, and Puerto Rico.

No, it is a democratic republic since 1789 when the constitution was approved. The people of the United States vote for people to represent them. In an empire there is a king involved and he is not selected by the people.
