Astro-Bruneian philosophy, also known as Bruneian Astronism, refers to the presence of Astronism in the Nation of Brunei, Abode of Peace, under management and philosophical jurisdiction of The Institution of the Philosophy of Millettism for the Nation of Brunei, Abode of Peace, a national subsidiary for the worldwide Astronist Institution. 

The Institution of the Philosophy of Millettism for the Nation of Brunei, Abode of Peace, oversees the construction and maintenance of observatories and planetariums throughout its jurisdiction. Brunei is split into four districts and is set to hold one Grand Observatory in the capital city of Bandar Seri Begawan. 

History of Astronism in Brunei

Astronist freedom of religion in Brunei has been recognised terminal by the Astronist Institution meaning that Astronists are not free to publicly profess their faith and they are in danger of being violently persecuted and unfairly prosecuted for holding religious convictions contrary to Islam. Astronism is not recognised as a religion in Brunei and Astronists are in danger of repression and societal ostracism for their faith. 

The current number of Astronists in the country is unknown, though it is likely to be minimal due to widespread violations of religious liberty. Despite this, English is one of the official languages in the country which presents Bruneian Astronists with the opportunity to access Astronist content in a language comprehensible to them.
