There definitely seems to be a method to their madness.
I can look at the skyline of my own city and see their architecture. I can look at the University of Texas and see their symbols, and geometry. I can look at the cornerstone of the courthouse here, and see their "great works." It is nationwide and worldwide. Why wouldn't it be in "Astana"?
As far as the "technology", who knows what they have suppressed?

I don't know if that answers your question. I guess yes, it could be very real.
