Htrae, better known as Bizarro World, is a world created by the deformed clone of Superman known as Bizarro. After several unsatisfying confrontations with Superman, Bizarro abandoned Earth and forged a new world for himself. Using the Duplicator Ray, Bizarro populated the planet with imperfect duplicates of both himself and Lois Lane. There, they raised a family of Bizarro children, and attempted to eke out an existence for themselves, which proved to be a pastiche of Superman's life back on Earth. Because of this, Bizarro is Htrae's most prominent man, who has renamed himself "Bizarro #1" to segregate his name from Htrae's race, also called Bizarro, and Bizarro Lois Lane is Htrae's most prominent woman.
The Bizarros try to live their backwards lives as opposite of Earth as possible: a Bizarro salesman sold Bizarro bonds that were "guaranteed to lose money for you", and the mayor of Mutropolis asks Bizarro to investigate a crime because he is "stupider than the entire Bizarro police force put together", which Bizarro interpreted (correctly) as the greatest praise a Bizarro can receive on Htrae.
The Bizarro World is populated with Bizarro versions of Superman's friends and co-workers, such as Bizarro Perry White and Bizarro Jimmy Olsen. Bizarro World also has its own version of the Justice League, known as the Bizarro Justice League.
Other famous humans had been managed to be cloned by Bizarro and given life on Htrae, such as Marilyn Monroe. Like her Earth counterpart, the Bizarro Marilyn is admired by many of the Bizarro men, as most consider her "the ugliest woman on Htrae", which is a high compliment for Htrae females.
