'Xterrier is truly the best thing to ever happen to mankind. Never before have we worked together as a single people. Never before have we had complete peace and no wars. Xterrier, a corporate entity, has achieved what the nations of Earth never could and has given us the chance to achieve great things.'
- George Nativus, Xterrier Mansions
