Not cranking

Hello everyone. It has been awhile since my last posting. Looking for help.
My 2008 Smart ForTwo has never had any starting issues until now. The car has been sitting in the garage unused and unrun for a year. I charged the battery, turned the key and NOTHING. Plenty of voltage, lights, radio and all accessories work. When I turn the key, no battery draw at all, no starter. Is there any kind of system reset that needs to be done due to battery being dead for so long?
Thanks in advance for any help.

THANK YOU for your reply. Yes, 451. No connection between ignition switch and starter. All dash from notions appear normal, good headlights, all accessories work. Someone responded that it could be that I don't have a strong 12V or a bad brake light switch. Unsure of brake light switch location, maybe on the brake pedal?
