Worth more than $3 billion at last count, President Donald Trump famously promised during the 2016 U.S. presidential to draw no salary should he be elected and, thus far, he's been keeping his promise, donating presidential pay in quarterly chunks to various government department such as the Department of Health and Human Services.

British financial services firm IG Group has compiled an online comparative database of how various elected, appointed and lifetime leaders of OECD countries are compensated.
