Your understanding of the world is...interesting.
Did you just suggest that Saudi Arabia is a US puppet democracy?
Did you just say literally that Russia and China have less poverty than the UK does?
Democracy doesn't guarantee prosperity - India is a democracy but very poor and chaotic. But if this is your argument, de democracy certainly wins hands down. As a whole, democracies are richer and with fewer poor people compared to non-dictatorship. You have rich countries that are not liberal democracies - Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Hong Kong, UAE, Qatar, the Vatican. But most of the most prosperous states - Sweden, Norway, USA, France, Germany, Japan, South Korea, Australia, Finland, Denmark, Canada, Switzerland, Israel - are. Whether that is a cause or an effect is worth a discussion, but to suggest democracies are economically doing worse than non-democracies is just complete ignorance.
China has a big economy because it has more than 1.3 billion people. What's their GDP per capita? Very low.
