British Elite league or EIHL, the standard is low end ECHL and comparable to major junior. You will be given a car and a house (possibly rooming with a teammate) and I'm not sure of the actual figures for pay but its enough to make a living. Some teams also have university deals so you can study while you play.

I am assuming you have played in one of the leagues you listed? Most imports at this level have played major junior or college D1 and came from the ECHL/CHL (central) and plenty have had AHL call ups. Here's the league page on elite prospects if you want to look at some of the players

Other leagues I would say are similar, slightly worse, or slightly better than this level are:

EBEL (Austria)
Swedish Allsvenskan
German Bundesliga
French Ligue Magnus
Italy Serie A
NLB (Swiss)
Danish league
Dutch Eredevisie
