As of November 2019, Astronism is not recognised as a valid religion or religious group in the disputed territory of Western Sahara. According to the Astronist Institution's late 2019 report called the Demographics of Astronism, Western Sahara had a population of only 30 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.
