Barsoom is inhabited by a remarkable variety of humanoid races, mostly Red and Green Martians, with Yellow, White, and Black Martians being rare or limited to small geographic areas. A very few humans have found themselves on Mars.
Martians in general live in a very martial society, dominated by duels and wars. They possess high technology left over from previous eons, but the ability to create and maintain it is very limited. They live on a dying world and they know it; thus the endless contest over dwindling resources.
