Like for real? I don't think so. What can you do with NA Militia?

Like some people have already said before, you'll want to go after them early. Also, try to deny or make it harder for them to gather resources. Without resources, they can't recruit anything or upgrade it.

I’ve used spies, currisers, fully upgraded French, Dutch, Germans, US...etc Their eco is crazy good with banks and villigers, crazy defense with infinite forts, and all their units are so strong.
    Can anyone who made the mod give me suggestions of what civ to use or units to make to counter such a powerful civ??

Japan seems to do very well against hapsburgs if microed properly. The geisha hard counters all hapsburg units if the explorer is killed before engaging. This is done best by targeting it with kiheis. You can get a better economy than Hapsburgs early allowing you to invest in the gold and wood needed to carry out this strategy. Your biggest goal is to kill the explorer as much as possible, though ransoming makes this less effective. Best thing to do with the time it buys you is to start upgrading and aging your economy. Since geishas are stopped by the tross, you will need other units to siege the enemy town. If you are able to avoid being attacked by magyars, simply using artillery to siege the buildings and keeping geisha close will ensure a quick victory.

Spies and spy-related shipments.
If you focus-fire the Explorer and the Trossen you can sneak up and murder everyone
