The Sovereign Military Order of Maltaball (Also know as the Order of Maltaball or SMOMball) is a
ghost without body religious knights order in Romeball. By some, he is considered as a micronation or microstate, despite having no clay. He even has his own passports, diplomats, post offices, AND military (which works with Italyball's military) with an air force. Even though he doesn't own any clay, he does own two buildings (both in Rome): Palazzo Malta and Villa del Priorato di Maltaball which have both been granted extraterritoriality by Italyball. He also semi-owns Upper Fort St. Angeloball in Birguball, as Maltaball has given him limited extraterritoriality there because of an agreement they made on November the 1st 2001 (although this agreement expires on the 1st of November 2100 (as the agreement specifies SMOMball can only have it for 99 years) or on/after the 1st of November 2051 (if Maltaball wants it back sooner)). He is only recognised by 107 countries, still more than Taiwanball HA! .
The Order of Maltaball was founded in 1048 by Crusader Knights called the Knights Hospitaller in what is now Maltaball. Since then, he became an important knight order in Europe, though he was (and is once again) clayless. At one point, he owned: Rhodesball, Cyprusball and some colonies in the Caribbean. In 1789 (when SMOMball was called the Knights Hospitaller) French First Republicball took the island of Malta while going on an expedition to Egyptball and so got rid of SMOMball but in 1834 SMOMball came back to life under the name he has now, although he came back clayless. Since 1994 he is of observer status in UNball (but as an organizationball, not countryball), even though many countries (specifically 3/5 of the big 5: Chinaball, UKball and USAball) do not recognize him.
