How do I change all category page layouts to one column, no layered navigation, no compared products, no recently viewed products on sidebar, etc.?

NOTE: I want to achieve scope with XML layout not from admin; I know admin stuff.

How do I achieve the above scope?

Update your catalog.xml with the below code.

    <reference name="root">
        <action method="setTemplate"><template>page/1column.phtml</template></action>

I hope this will work for you.
