The role of being the head of state, or head of government in some countries, is one most people aspire to and only few get to do. The job itself involves high pressure from the citizens of the country and from outside the borders, long tedious working hours, and relatively little salary, at least when compared with that of CEOs of large corporations who the government’s policies and decisions impact every day.

Here are the top 20 highest paid world leaders.
