The United Kingdom.
What China has in population is worthless when considering an invading force. There isn't enough land in the United Kingdom for a naval landing to work and the United Kingdom does not have a weak navy to begin with. The United Kingdom also has the advantage of terrain on it's side; the country is known for it's poor weather (ha!) therefore those who are not used to it are likely to fall ill faster, esp. in stressful circumstances, and without adequate shelter and camps there's a good chance that bunkering down would work well for the U. K. against the limited number of enemies that can even land to begin with.
U. K. also has access to greater resources (even if not using allies) than most in China do so while China would have perhaps some ICBMs they could be intercepted without incident and because of the fact that they would have to fly over other countries to begin with most wouldn't even make it that far meaning that the invading force would either have to cross all of Europe (not going to happen) or again be stuck with naval combat. The travel time between the two is too great and U. K. has nothing to gain from invading China in it's current state due to diplomatic management of the population being all but impossible due to it's size.
This means that ultimately U. K. has the upper hand solely based on the fact that they're geopolitically placed in a way that would make most forms of attack relatively ineffective. This doesn't even begin to cover the tunnel systems and other elements that would be on their side in preventing invasion from a mass force of likely undertrained citizenry that is being drafted.
However the U. K. would be susceptible to internal affairs issues maybe, spies and the like, and China not as susceptible due to how they essentially are xenophobic as well as use very strict management of persona in the government and how harshly they deal with betrayals (instant executions) and scandals.
What a curious question.2
