Smallville is usually portrayed as an idyllic, small isolated American town, with an atmosphere resembling the settings of the paintings of Norman Rockwell. Its residents are generally very friendly, though it also tends to attract various threats (from criminals, alien invaders, etc.). Smallville's economy mostly consists of various locally owned businesses, along with various farms surrounding the town, including the Kent family farm. Smallville has one high school, Smallville High School, which Clark, Lana, and Pete attend.
