The mock locale en_DK ("english in Denmark") is used when one wants ISO-dates (YYYY-MM-DD) and 24 hour clock everywhere, that is: a non-en_* LC_TIME, but english everywhere else.

It is easier to use this locale than specifying an LC_TIME that differs from the rest of the locale everywhere it is needed. It is also the easiest way of getting ISO-dates in for instance Mozilla Thunderbird (http://myy.helia.fi/~karte/international_iso-8601_date_on_thunderbird.html)

Make copies of either en_US.* or en_GB.* to en_DK.* and change the date and hour-formats in LC_TIME.
