Astro-Tanzanian philosophy, or Tanzanian Astronism, refers to the presence of Astronism in the United Republic of Tanzania under management and philosophical jurisdiction of The Institution of The Philosophy of Millettism for the United Republic of Tanzania, a national subsidiary for the worldwide Astronist Institution. The Institution of the Philosophy of Millettism for the United Republic of Tanzania oversees the construction and maintenance of observatories and planetariums throughout its jurisdiction. Tanzania is split into thirty-one regions and is set to hold three Grand Observatories in the capital city of Dodoma, as well as in the cities of Dar es Salaam and Zanzibar Town.  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 Tanzania. As of November 2019, Astronism is not recognised as a valid religion or religious group in the country of Tanzania. According to the Astronist Institution's late 2019 report called the Demographics of Astronism, Tanzania had a population of 13,000 Astronists. The unrecognised status of Astronists in the country has caused a detriment to religious freedoms for Astronists there. Astronists are not free to express their beliefs publicly and the vast majority of Astronist religious materials are actively censored by the government. The Astronist Institution has expressed concerns regarding the issue for Astronist religious liberties and such, it labelled the situation as censorious in its 2020 Astronist Freedom report.
