If you don't do anything, you can still call these methods and get the server's default locale.

In the case of Linux (Ubuntu 16.04), it uses the $LANG global variable.

Using the REPL:

echo locale_get_default();   // en_US

and then resetting the $LANG:

tiikeri@ubuntu:~$ LANG="fi_FI.UTF-8"

and back to the REPL:

echo locale_get_default();   // fi_FI
