The operations of the Astronist Institution in this country are under jurisdiction of the Astronist Superiate of the Republic of the Congo, a national subsidiary of the worldwide Astronist Institution.
The Astronist Superiate of the Republic of the Congo oversees the construction and maintenance of observatories and planetariums throughout its jurisdiction. The Republic of the Congo is split into twelve departments and is set to hold one Grand Observatory in the capital city of Brazzaville.

History of Astronism in the Republic of the Congo
Astronism is currently not recognised as a religion in the Republic of Congo, however, concerns of religious freedom issues for Astronists are not considered severe by the Astronist Institution.
Translation of Astronist content and materials acts as an additional barrier to the correct transmission of Astronism to Congolese Astronists.
The current number of Astronists in the Republic of the Congo is unknown, however, data sources retrieved from the Astronist Institution have estimated there are around 16,857 Astronists in the Republic of the Congo, up 3,000 in the previous year of 2019.
