  • The Proles of Light City are forbidden to ask questions, have names, to wonder, to listen to non-sanctioned music, to use words such as "evolution," "change" and "overseas", to use metaphors or analogies in their speech, to worship gods and to discuss any form of solipsism. They must watch a mandatory number of Infotainment broadcast hours. The upper-class consider the Proles to be incapable of original thought.
  • The state slogans include "Happiness through Acceptance", "Productivity through Happiness" and "A Place for Everything and Everything in its Place" while the state prayers include "I love the state" and "I venerate the regime."
  • The office of the Editor is located in the Ministry of Tourism.

  • The people in Light City have files ranging from Axos to Zarbi.

  • Proles must apply for permission to have children. However, the paperwork is extensive.
  • The regime has existed in Light City for hundreds, perhaps thousands, of generations.
  • Jubilee Day is the only day every quarter that the Proles can engage in banned activities. It is a form of controlled chaos.
  • The Doctor carries a spinning top, at least two pairs of Ray-Bans, a toy robot and other items in his pockets.
  • When the Doctor mentioned the Dalai Lama during their visit to Light City, C'rizz initially believed that he is speaking about an animal. Charley then explained about Buddhism and reincarnation. She describes that the belief in reincarnation as being "very pagan."
  • The Doctor believes that Light City is comparable to the glory of Rome.
  • C'rizz is able to see the Doctor and Charley's skeletons if he stares at them hard enough.
  • The inhabitants of Light City have eight limbs and are very short-lived compared to most humanoid species. A hundred of their generations amount to less than one year.
