The president's pension is enough for them to buy a brand new toyota corolla every month for the rest of their life

And that doesn't count taxpayer funded bodyguards for every member of his family till he dies.

This is as much for the protection of the U.S. (and likely its allies) as it is for the protection of these people.  You have no idea what information these people may have been exposed to while their husband/father/whatever was in office and its pretty common knowledge that the president directly would be exposed to lots of information.  So the protection is more protection of that information (note the till he dies part) more than the people themselves.  I would be frankly surprised if any government that has meaningful heads of state don't all do the same but I don't know ALL world government policies so this is just an assumption.

Flaw in your logic: You assume the US president is a "meaningful" head of state. He's just a figurehead/scapegoat.

Like in the book Hitchicker's Guide to the Galaxy, the President of the Universe is simply aposition to create controvery and distract the public from the actions of the true seat of power, one insane king and his six regents.

"The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank...sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world."

- Carroll Quigley, CFR member, mentor to Bill Clinton, from 'Tragedy And Hope'
