Astro-Papua New Guinean philosophy, or Papua New Guinean Astronism refers to the presence of Astronism in Papua New Guinea under management and philosophical jurisdiction of The Institution of The Philosophy of Millettism for the Independent States of Papua New Guinea, a national subsidiary for the worldwide Astronist Institution. The Institution of the Philosophy of Millettism for the Independent States of Papua New Guinea oversees the construction and maintenance of observatories and planetariums throughout its jurisdiction. Papua New Guinea is split into twenty-two provinces and is set to hold one Grand Observatory in the capital city of Port Moresby. This national branch of The Institution of The Philosophy of Millettism manages the official representation and depiction of Astronism throughout this territory, including efforts to protect the identity of the philosophy with the intention of further disseminating it throughout the territory. It is The Institution alone that is granted the status of proprietor to the philosophy in this territory as any other organisations or institutions proclaiming such a role are deemed as unauthorised proprietors and are therefore considered as part of the anti-Institutionist movement. History of Astronism in Papua New Guinea. As of November 2019, Astronism is not recognised as a valid religion or religious group in the country of Papua New Guinea. According to the Astronist Institution's late 2019 report called the Demographics of Astronism, Papua New Guinea had a population of 1,800 Astronists. Despite their unrecognised status, Astronists enjoy relative religious liberties in the country and can practice and profess their faith openly and publicly without fear of repression or incident. Therefore, the Astronist Institution has not expressed concerns regarding the religious freedoms for Astronists in this country. A significant barrier to the further spread of Astronism in the country is the lack of accurate translations of Astronist materials in the non-English languages used in the country. As of late 2019, the Omnidoxy had not been translated into the most widely spoken non-English Australasian languages of Papua New Guinea which remains an issue for Astronists there.
