If the world has an impoverished president, it may be Jose Mujica, the current head of state in Uruguay, the South American nation of some 3.3 million people that's about the size of Washington state.

As BBC News reports, President Mujica (pictured above) shunned the luxurious house that Uruguay provides for its leaders and stays at his wife's farmhouse, located off a dirt road outside the capital, Montevideo.
