No, there is no way to do this, if you did, you would have no military, no industry, and no way to build anything anyway, and seeing as the AI dosen't build anything then the AI regions would remain 'blank'. And if you had it so only the player was 'blank' then you would be quickly overwhelmed.
Also this falls more under the title Civ builder, which is something that the devs are trying to avoid.
The only way to do this would be to use the editor, you could then delete and replace buildings as you liked. However how to do this is something I don't know...
