    Ottomans. Sipahi armies are unstoppable, and if you do the military-technology gambit and get them while everyone else is getting physics and banking, you have free reign through an entire era, and infantry slow them down but they're still useful till Mobile Infantry show up.

    Unless you're not a warmonger, I guess. :mischief:

    The best is PERSIA their special unit lasts the longest, and covers the ancient and medieval times. Awesome for getting land in the beginning, and use with the crusaders in medieval times.

    I like dominating the world with the zulu nation if only for the sake of irony. Same for the iros.

    Russians - the Expansionist/Scientific outlook allows you to tech up more rapidly than most.

    Please don't laugh, but I just played the game of my life with - the Hittites!
    I guess that's pretty ironic in more than one way...

    The Dutch. I like the seafaring trait a lot and the agricultural one as well, along with their nice UU.

    Honorable mention to the Byzantines, though.
