The constitution of Užupis is the republic's intellectual centerpiece. It was written by the poet Tomas Čepaitis and filmmaker Romas Lileikis in 1997, printed on reflective solid steel, and mounted to a wall in Paupio Gatve to promote self-responsibility and to spread joy among the inhabitants of Užupis. It is the world's first and only constitution to contain the word love and to grant rights to nature and animals. It can make you smile and it can make you cry. Just like life itself.
In 2018, after an official amendment, the article no. π about artificial intelligence (AI) was added to inspire the ethical debate about AI with the spirit of Užupis.

Užupis is a district in the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site of Vilnius’ (LT) old town. After the breakdown of Soviet Union, the district of Užupis drowned in poverty and violence. The artists of Užupis declared our the district an independent republic to save the citizens' lives with love, humor and paradox. Today, the spirit of Užupis is supported by 500+ ambassadors and honorary citizens like His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama. The ambassadors build bridges between people.
The Embassy of the Republic of Užupis to Munich is a free collective of artists, creatives, and humanoids. We build bridges between arts and technology to make innovations more accessible, ethical and inspired. We create experiences and artworks to explore the unthinkable. For this, wee have collaborated with partners like United Nations, Harvard University, and Ars Eletronica Research Institute Knowledge for Humanity.
Paradox starts with π! The meta the better
