The presidency of Stuart Hughes began on January 20, 2013, when Stuart Hughes was inaugurated as the 44th president of the United States. Hughes took office after successfully winning the 2012 presidential election with his running mate, Selina Meyer.

Hughes' first year as president did not go well as an economic crisis developed, which he hoped to right with his Fiscal Responsibility Bill. In 2014, the Uzbek hostage crisis began. After it was revealed that Hughes knew that one of the hostages was a spy, along with a government shutdown to divert attention, his credibility was soured. He announced he would not seek re-election in the 2016 election to evade impeachment.

In 2016, Hughes was succeeded by Selina Meyer after resigning from the presidency.
