The basic Integer type System unit
  type Integer = -2147483648..2147483647;  // At the time of writing
The Integer type is an Integer whose size is not guaranteed. It is the basic integer type in Delphi, and currently has the same capacity as the LongInt type - 1 bit sign, and 31 bits value.
To hold very large integers, use the Int64 type.
