That is certainly NOT true for Italy.
Paperopoli (Duckburg) and Topolinia (Mouseton) were always located in the
USA for Italian readers.
Romano Scarpa even made up the name of a new State (Calidornia) to place
Topolinia inside the USA.
And $crooge came to Italy looking for oil (in I TL 139-B, "Paperino e la
scoperta dell'Italia") very clearly from the USA (where an Italian emigrant
was shown to live...)
