Site wide banner help

I want to configure a site wide banner similiar to here on my Dev instance of Confluence, except I want it to display at all times even when scrolling, and I want it to display on the Confluence Admin page. Can someone please advise how I can do this?

It's primarily so I can see at all times whether I'm on the live instance, or the test instance.
