Japan has the best military since every single unit has very high attack and hp + daimyo and wonder bonuses that stack, giving you a very versatile army. You can literally just hold your ground and attack your enemy at the same spot and drain him. On average, Japan always has the highest units killed in post game stats.
But Japan also has the trickiest economy to set up in the 40 mins treaty time. Proper villager distribution and adjustment of villagers to different resources as needed is done a lot to get the perfect 1800+ score.
Here's two recorded gaes. One i tried doing offline withou taking any treausres and trade posts. The other is a 2v2 where i got sheeps from my ally and treasures. Tho there isnt much difference in the score.

=====> Age 1
- Gather resource crates and que first batch of villagers. Move 5 villagers to cherry orchard. Rest to wood. All new villagers go to wood. Make shrine with your monk and set shrine to food.
- Make market. Get food upgrade first, then wood, then the last market upgrade for 5% all resource gather upgrade.
- Make constulate with 4 villagers. Set constulate to Portugal (decreases wood cost of buildings)
- First shipment Heavenly Kami (cheaper shrines). Switch shrine gather to wood.
- Start making shrines with your explorers only. Try to make shrines near animals. If animals arent close, dont worry. Make shrines anywhere you can till you reach 20.
-2nd shipment Exotic Hardwoodwords. 3rd shipment Team Chonindo.
- Once all 20 shrines are set, switch all villagers to food and shift shrine to gather food.
-You'll have about 680 food by the time you have 22-23 villagers. Portuguese from constulate lets you age up with lower food (680 instead of 800) and also makes your building cost cheaper.
-Age up with Toshuguru Shrine using 4 villagers. Keep 5 villagers on food and shift all others to coin. Get coin upgrade from market.
-4th shipment Advanced Constulate.

=====> Age 2
- Move the 4 villagers that made wonder to coin. You'll need 10209 food and 1000 coin to age up again.

- Age up with the Shogunate using 8 villagers. Change Contulate to Dutch and get Bank, church and ****nal from dutch constulate. Then Switch to Spain.
- While aging move some villagers to wood to collect 500 wood for shrine upgrade (costs 500 food, wood, coin) Then shift villagers back to food/coin
