I understand that selectorate theory can be used to distinguish between democracy and authoritarian regimes (due to difference in winning coalitions) and between the types of dictatorship (due to difference in selectorate size, yet small winning coalition across all 3 types).

in theory, which regime type is best?

    Define "best". Without specified criteria, everyone can have their own opinion. – Bobson Feb 9 at 22:21
