The order of a Spanish sentence is:

What you think it is more important, followed by the second most important thing, followed by the least important thing, all this from the point of view of a native.

what

subject ...verb...complement is what I think that you are referring to. The complement is called the object in the abbreviations below.

Some of the symbols you might see here are:

SVO (subject verb object.) common transitive verb arrangement, but can be either

I drove the car. (yo) conduje el coche.

OVS (object verb subject) common intransitive verb arrangement, but can be either

I like ice cream. Me gusta helado.

You don't say! ¡No me digas [tú]!

SOV (subject object verb) no se lo dijo.

And, of course you can have sentences with only a subject and a verb.

You are? context might give you an implied complement

¿tú eres?

So to reiterate. Your answer is "what"".
