Astro-Somali philosophy, or Somali Astronism refers to the presence of Astronism in Federal Republic of Somalia under management and philosophical jurisdiction of The Institution of The Philosophy of Millettism for the Federal Republic of Somalia, a national subsidiary for the worldwide Astronist Institution. The Institution of the Philosophy of Millettism for the Federal Republic of Somalia oversees the construction and maintenance of observatories and planetariums throughout its jurisdiction. Somalia is split into eighteen regions and is set to hold two Grand Observatories in the capital city of Mogadishu, as well as in the city of Hargeisa. 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 Somalia. As of November 2019, Astronism is not recognised as a valid religion or religious group in the country of Somalia. According to the Astronist Institution's late 2019 report called the Demographics of Astronism, Somalia had no Astronist population. In its 2020 Astronist Freedom report, the Astronist Institution designated the religious liberties for Astronists in the country as terminal. This is the lowest possible ranking for a country’s religious freedoms that can be given by the Astronist Institution. Astronists are severely undermined and persecuted here and the Astronist Institution has expressed significant concerns regarding the violations of human rights both for Astronists and all religious minorities. A significant barrier to the further spread of Astronism in the country is the lack of accurate translations of Astronist materials in the dominant language of the nation. As of late 2019, the Omnidoxy had not been translated into the most widely spoken language of Somalia which remains an issue for Astronists there.
