remote, outback area here in croatia we have some slang expressions relating to this words..when someone lives far from civilisation we say he,she lives behind God's legs or in area to which God said good bye long time ago...and so many others

That's an interesting expression :)
Our Haitian Creole expression for "behind God's legs" is Nan peyi pèdi or Nan ziltik

examples:
1. Li abite jouk nan ziltik.

2. Fèt la te mèt fèt jouk nan ziltik m'ap la.
   Even if the party's happening in a remote area, I'll be there.
