Changing return of type(obj)

I am attempting to fully-simulate an 'int' object with a custom object type.
It is part of a library I am creating for python futures and promises. Is
there anyway such that type(my_object) can return <type 'int'>? Or for that
matter, any other primitive? I do not care how dirty the solution might
possibly be; Could there be a way through the C API? Though I predict it
will cause a mess with the interpreter.
