Thank you zedom for catching these! Corrected all errors and updated WL and Repos.

"Lily pad" refers to a so-called US paramilitary "cooperative base" with (duped) locals, so it does not need to be registered as an "official" US military base:

The word "empire" does appear in mixed case, but IMO its context is proper for all occurrences: Capitalized when referring to Abby's syndicated "The Empire Files" or in reference to it, for example:
> It also plays a key role in manufacturing consent for Empire.

but lower case when used as a regular noun, for example:
> But the empire is doing the opposite of that:

Thanks for that!

I don't see how the two examples you gave are any different regarding that word.
To me, in both cases what is referred is the (US) Empire,
