en_DK is truly the greatest locale out there.

For those who haven't heard of en_DK before, it's the "European English" (for want of a better description) locale.

It uses Commonwealth English (en_GB) for strings and ISO-14651-1 for collates.
Dates are in YYYY-MM-DD, time is in 24h HH:MM format, Monday is the first day of the week, comma is the decimal separator, currency is euro and standard paper size is A4.

Bonus: en_DK's LC_MESSAGES lets you use y (for yes), o (for oui), j (for ja) and s (for sí/sì/sim) for positive responses, and n (for no/nein/non/não/nej) for negative responses; as well as language-neutral 1 0 and + - characters.
