America is already a empire.
Like with Russia it had free land bordering it so it could expand there instead of having to go overseas. Since the American empire was so near to the capital it could be incorporated into America proper so it remains whilst the others went apart.
Probally not explained well as its late but you should know what I'm getting at.
