You are confusing English the language with the United Kingdom the country. England is not one of the two great democracies in the world. United Kingdom may be called a democracy but England is certainly not as it is a nationality, not a country in its own right.
As a Scot, I am heartily sick of foreign learners confusing the two - it is almost always because they have been taught by an English person.
Please refer to the United Kingdom when comparing with other countries - or else compare it to a state in America.
