Ursa Minor Beta is a rich and sunny planet and one of the most popular holiday destinations in the Universe. Strangely, it is always Saturday afternoon on this planet, just before the beach bars close - except for the few places where it is eternally Saturday evening. This is why the locals always invite visitors to "Have a nice diurnal anomaly!."
Light City is the only city on Ursa Minor Beta and can only be reached by plane because they want you to see the majesty of Light City as you fly by. It is where the headquarters of the editorial offices of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy are situated.

- The quotation is a corruption of Dr. Samuel Johnson's observation from 1777, in Boswell's "Life of Johnson:"-
"Why, Sir, you find no man, at all intellectual, who is willing to leave London. No, Sir, when a man is tired of London, he is tired of life; for there is in London all that life can afford."
