    I've had a Diplo win as Persia, which was done by massive Classical-Medieval African/Asian conquests, followed by a (successful) European Renaissance grindfest, then in the Industrial era gifting a Jewish city in the New World to Monty to get him on board the AP. Then my and my vassals' block vote forced through a Religious Victory. If you've been knocking heads, you'll perhaps struggle to persuade many self-ruling Civs to vote you winner, and if you've not been slaughtering everyone you meet you'll perhaps struggle to muster the votes yourself.

    So, I'd go for either rampaging Tankspam conquest (aim for Holy Cities as high priority for revenue to cover your growing upkeep), or else fly off to Space.
