    I've used the term "rim scraper" in the past (if the character is from the Outer Rim).

    I've got a nagging feeling that I've seen at least one or two good answers to this question used somewhere in the Old EU novels, possibly from the X-wing series, or some other works by folks like Zahn, Stackpole or Anderson. But for the life of me I can't recall what they may have been...sorry. :(

    Farmboy? Red neck?

    My fanon language post* have: "Visch, the = 1) Farmland; 2) underdeveloped planets or regions" - maybe you could work with that somehow?

    Farm boy (or girl) could be okay, as I believe that Luke Skywalker has been referred to as a farm boy in canon. I could be wrong, though.

    Is there a SW equivalent for TV? As in "watching on TV"

    Viewscreen and vidscreen are used in FOTJ, though I think viewscreens are also used as datapad screens elsewhere.
