The Empire-Builder from Calisota or The Richest Duck in the World is a Scrooge McDuck comic by Don Rosa. It is the eleventh of the original 12 chapters in the series The Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck. The story takes place from 1909 to 1930.


Scrooge and his sisters go to Africa where Scrooge, for the only time in his life, acts like a scoundrel as he hires some criminals to attack a native village. In protest, Matilda and Hortense return to Duckburg while Scrooge goes around the world in search of more wealth. The whole time, he is followed by a zombie named Bombie. In the end he returns home as a hardened duck and as a result his family leaves him, but he finds comfort in now being the richest duck on earth. But this comfort is only temporary; the shame and remorse start to torment Scrooge, and his guilt and sadness grow up to the point where he loses his interest in money and retires.
