I DO believe that the threat of martial law MAY BE a red herring as you state, but I have one disagreement with your figures. It's irrelevant, but I don't think you can use population density, OR square miles. Either one of these will lead to misperceptions.
As far as the red herring, we have seen the threat of martial law used by members of our governing body to speed up the adoption of legislation. It was unwarranted in the context it was used, but the warning of it IS apparently a very favored method for motivating skeptical lawmakers.
... Under the martial law procedure, longstanding House rules that require at least one day between the unveiling of significant legislation and the House floor vote on that legislation — so that Members can learn what they are being asked to vote on — are swept away. Instead, under “martial law,” the Leadership can file legislation with tens or hundreds of pages of fine print and move immediately to debate and votes on it, before Members of Congress, the media, or the public have an opportunity to understand fully what provisions have been altered or inserted into the legislation behind closed doors. This is the procedure that the Leadership intends to use to muscle through important bills in the next two days. ...

Who exactly is going to enforce it?
Ods are by posting at this site you're already under more electronic surveillance than you would be, if thats to be any gauge to the notions of martial law / police state.
Following that, the military has a nearly $1 trillion budget that is mostly spent outside the US, meaning $1T in the US in addition to the existing police apparatus would be a monster the world has never witnessed.

And, there's too many of us to monitor.
Personally I don't believe anyone should let the mere threat of surveillance stop them from speaking out.
But they dont spend money like we do. You dont steal from the kitty, or pay people off, do you? If you have $1000, then you get $1000 in merchandise. When they spend a grand, they get a few nuts and bolts. The rest is in kickbacks.
Sounds like a good plan to unleash the largest military in the world on the largest armed populace in the world. Both stand in the way of world government so why not sacrifice the greatest country in the world for the sake of everyone else, to make a global government necessary. It's not meant to succeed, it's to take us out of the game.
They'll send Mercs to take care of holdouts.

Really it's as simple as cutting off power, water and sewer service. Three to five days without those and people will gladly relocate anywhere as long as those needs are met. After that it's simply a matter of picking the right locations for the people to be stabled so that a small number of armed guards can control a huge group of people by controling their food and water. Once you have those two elements in control it's not hard to break spirits and physically weaken the people to the point they become as docile as a puppy with a full stomach.
