Once upon a time when there was a wave of duck and mouse immigrants from the Southern regions of the Scrooge McDuck Universe, the Italian Uncle Scrooge used to strike a deal with Peg-Leg Pete (who used to share his tent with a few Amazons): infrastructures in return for fewer, if any, ducks and mice sailing the sea towards Duckburg and the nearby region of Duckburg-zone. Uncle Scrooge also got Duckburg’s local energy company to operate in Pete’s country.
However since the Phantom Blot launched Phase 2 of his diabolical foreign policy:
- Captain Nathaniel Churchmouse (who ruled in the land of the Pyramids) was ousted.
- Peg-Leg Pete was ousted.
- All the other minor characters ruling in the Southern parts of the Scrooge McDuck Universe were ousted too.
Under Phantom Blot’s New Order, Rockerduck companies are exploiting local underground resources; the immigration flows from the Southern regions of the Scrooge McDuck Universe towards Duckburg-zone has not only resumed but increased massively. Duckburg and the Duckburg-zone are now struggling and cannot cope with the duck and mouse immigrants.
In the meanwhile Phantom Blot is also suspected financing the Beagle Boys, a group of criminals who are disseminating terror both in the Southern regions of the Scrooge McDuck Universe and within the Duckburg-zone.
Phantom Blot’s aim is to destabilise the Southern regions of the Scrooge McDuck Universe to gain full access to energy resources and to to frighten the members of the Duckburg-zone whilst agreeing an international trade agreement called DMTP (‘Ducks and Mice Trade Partnership‘).
