In the old world, possibly it's the Ket language spoken in Central Siberia. It's a moribund language of the Yeniseian family, and the sole Survivor of this family, which might possibly represent the oldest remaining language stock in siberia (other languages have, possibly, over time edged out Yeniseian, which used to be spoken over quite a wide area). It's completely unrelated to any other language around it, exhibits complex verbal morphology, and theories exist linking it in the very distant past to Native American languages (the Na-Dene family) and Chinese. A few hundred people speak it now, so there are probably other languages around that are more "obscure", depending on how you define the word, but Ket is definitely special.
