Bulgaria. Peasants make an army and economy. You can make their vills from multiple places at once from age one. Trash their armies.

 Ethiopian for defensive. Their buildings have more hitpoints and damage the more library tech researched. 
It is possible for the tower to get 10k+ hp and 100+ attack, and the  towncenter can get up to 200+ attack. Also, the towncenter auto spawns porters overtime.
 America for turtle. They have more techs than normal, gain excess to the Great Company, their economy and military are best when late game. 
They can also send the Statue of Liberty for great view and maintain exp.

Mexicans ... for defensive...
You will start with two Town Centers, and remembering that the additional Town Center, the "Presidio" acts as a fort and you can build more of them later.
Interesting detail, with each researched technology you get a "pistolero", so you will not have to spend much on the army at first ... do not forget to carry in the deck the "Colonial Militia" cards and what lowers the population space occupied by the "pistoleros"
