According to the ncal docs, the country code has nothing to do with language, just Gregorian dates:

    -s country_code
            Assume the switch from Julian to Gregorian Calendar at the date
            associated with the country_code.  If not specified, ncal tries to
            guess the switch date from the local environment or falls back to
            September 2, 1752.  This was when Great Britain and her colonies
            switched to the Gregorian Calendar.
