Who is the oldest world leader, in the world, today?
Fidel Castro and Queen Elizabeth are probably close - both 77, with Liz a few months older.
Fidel is also currently the longest-serving head of government in the world.

Zaher Shah, the symbolic king of Afghanistan, who is 87, looks promising, depending on whether you consider him a legitimate world leader.
The Dalai Lama, no question. Currently about 3000 years old.
Good call, JP2 is 83.
Hate to nitpick your joke, but Buddhism has only been around for ~2600.
