I wonder if Risa, which Memory Alpha says is also known as the Pleasure Planet, is perhaps the same world referred to by Darnell as Wrigley's Pleasure Planet in TOS: The Man Trap? Maybe Wrigley first charted it, or introduced the first chewing gum market there.

It looks like in "Two Days..." the script originally said they went to Wrigley's, but someone decided it was too well known or sounded too close to be exotic, so it became Risa. Though it sounds more to me like it was their obsession with introducing 24th century concepts.
