Default What comes after a trillion

So my son asks what comes after a trillion. The back story...

He's in 10th grade, has to do a paper and speech on a current topic. He chose the cost of illegal immigration. I guess the speech went well. He had some statistics, valid points, opinions (a decent job overall). He brought up the yearly cost of illegal immigration, something like $25Billion, and with the $17Trillion in debt it amounts to $xxxxxx of debt per taxpayer.

After a pause he asked “what comes after a trillion”?
