Object Class

"Supports all classes in the .NET Framework class hierarchy and provides low-level services to derived classes. This is the ultimate base class of all classes in the .NET Framework; it is the root of the type hierarchy."

Source: MSDN Library.

Summarizing:

System.Object is the root of the type hierarchy.

Those types don't exist in the .Net Framework, but the type System.Int32 exists and it is a descendant of System.ValueType like all the value types.
