The easiest way to go about this is by doing the following:

Create a Sandbox game on a Generated Map (size and such doesn't matter much, just make it flat). Make sure the following options are selected: Unlimited Money, start in Modern Era, and turn off the "victory by" options. All others are up to you.

When the game loads, go to pause time and immediately build a Nuclear Power Plant (using quick build), and go into your trade routes (RT+Y) and find any options for importing Uranium. Alternatively you can also see if there are any Uranium deposits and mine them, but that takes slightly longer. You might also try building a Lighthouse if you don't see any Uranium trade routes right away, but they should be there.

Next, build Science Labs again using quick build. Just build as many as you feel like, I recommend at least 10-15. The more the better, but we don't want to exceed the power output. Also, build one Embassy, again using quick build.

After that, start time and move it to the right. Go into the power plant as well as all science labs and the embassy, and hire foreign workers to fill all spots available.

Lastly, go into Edicts (LT+B) and find/issue the Global Research Initiative (this requires at least one embassy, if you're curious as to why we built that earlier).

All that's left to do is make sure that the power plant is outputting power, the science labs remain as full as possible in regards to employees, and that you're selecting any remaining research items when they become available (LT+A). Shouldn't take more than 10 minutes or so.

If you're having trouble with power, you can also try one of the following:

1. A regular power plant and coal/natural gas imports/mines.
2. A geothermal power plant if you have a volcano nearby (otherwise these just don't put out enough power to make it worth while)
3. Finally, try just using a bunch of observatories or libraries instead of science labs. They don't output as much Research Points, but should do the trick in a pinch.

Any suggestions on how to improve this or if I've missed anything, please let me know.
