The United States may have the highest paid CEOs, but South Africa is where CEOs get paid highest in the world  and they  live  a life far above the rest CEO's across other regions.The above chart shows which nations are the Chief Executive Offers get paid the highest irrespective of the industry.It also considers how much are they paid compared to everyone else 

South African CEOs are among some of the best paid in the world, and earn more than 500 times more than the average South African.The figures are the latest statistic illustrating how South Africa is consistently one of the most unequal societies in the world. South Africa ranked seventh when counting CEO salaries around the world, according to a Bloomberg survey of executive paychecks around in the world’s 25 largest economies. But Africa’s most advanced economy rocketed to the top when considering how executive packages compared to the average income in the country. The average income in South Africa is $13,194, measured in GDP per capita adjusted to purchasing power in 2015 and 2016. The average CEO earned $7.14 million, 541 times more than the average income

CEO's in UK gets paid less than what they would be receiving in United States. While CEO's in Canada ,Switzerland,Germany and Spain follow where the gap between  what they earn and everyone else is probably lower
