Payunia City is a comic strip that reflects contemporary society in a modern fable that uses animals to stand in for people. The name refers to a nature reserve in Mendoza, Argentina, called “La Payunia,” where various species of wild animals (guanaco, llamas, pumas, foxes, flamingos, rheas, three-banded armadillos) are protected and live alongside domesticated animals (goats, cows, and horses) owned by caretakers
