A couple of ways possibly could be...

1. Alter the background color to your preference gis/settings/background color, or
2. Create a placefile background, add it and check the second box on placefile manger to make it underlying.

However, they are probably better routes over what as mentioned above.

I apparently missed the GREarth focus in your post.

Otherwise, I do not utilize a background for GREarth since the over layered data covers up the background anyway.
