Jim Williams recently finished a multi-year search for all simple perfect squared squares up to order 37. More details will eventually be at squaring.net. For orders 21 to 37, there are {1, 8, 12, 26, 160, 441, 1152, 3001, 7901, 20566, 54541, 144161, 378197, 990981, 2578081, 6674067, 17086918} such squares (A006983).

Bouwkamp codes for the smallest squares of each order (A129947 A217148) are as follows.

smallest={{21,112,112,50,35,27,8,19,15,17,11,6,24,29,25,9,2,7,18,16,42,4,37,33},{22,110,110,60,50,23,27,24,22,14,7,16,8,6,12,15,13,2,28,26,4,21,3,18,17},{23,110,110,44,29,37,21,8,13,32,28,16,15,19,12,4,3,1,2,14,5,10,41,38,7,31},{24,120,120,47,32,41,15,17,8,33,19,20,23,25,14,5,4,13,3,10,16,9,12,46,40,6,34},{25,147,147,74,73,32,41,40,34,15,17,6,16,12,14,9,13,10,8,33,27,25,5,4,3,23,20,19},{26,212,212,99,57,56,1,55,26,32,20,6,38,48,19,28,4,24,16,39,12,7,5,2,85,23,17,65,62},{27,180,180,89,48,43,12,31,41,7,19,50,40,25,36,29,15,10,23,6,9,1,56,21,16,51,4,13,39,34},{28,201,201,77,56,68,21,17,18,6,30,32,4,13,24,54,38,10,1,12,11,39,36,2,34,16,22,70,3,67,64},{29,221,221,100,68,53,15,38,32,28,23,5,56,33,62,41,29,44,18,21,20,74,1,7,12,59,19,6,13,8,48,40},{30,201,201,77,55,69,41,14,27,56,51,26,8,15,45,25,1,9,2,13,11,7,17,16,40,73,3,10,60,28,4,36,32},{31,215,215,92,68,55,13,42,24,26,31,50,28,15,23,21,5,2,40,38,7,8,6,1,17,36,22,12,10,19,78,73,9,64},{32,185,185,80,51,54,29,19,3,16,41,10,25,35,26,43,15,28,20,33,9,17,36,8,7,13,1,6,30,62,5,57,34,2,32},{33,223,223,98,69,56,12,20,24,1,3,8,42,26,2,5,19,10,4,6,22,16,45,57,28,13,38,15,40,18,25,83,11,7,72,68},{34,218,218,79,61,78,18,43,36,42,41,31,25,11,47,10,9,17,5,40,6,16,1,8,35,7,48,28,4,20,67,26,14,63,12,50,38},{35,225,225,95,70,60,22,38,28,30,12,18,16,58,34,3,31,2,52,50,24,20,21,14,5,1,4,13,32,75,72,10,9,27,19,8,43,35},{36,253,253,96,81,76,36,40,18,63,69,24,3,21,32,4,44,45,47,28,20,15,29,8,12,88,26,19,17,1,14,13,9,64,62,23,7,16,39},{37,237,237,93,79,65,14,51,56,37,49,44,19,69,32,43,18,26,36,13,23,8,34,21,11,59,30,24,17,52,9,12,40,3,15,6,35,7,29,22}};

Order 38 is expected to be too large to analyze for at least a few years. Then again, Order 37 was considered impossible a decade ago.
