Help tracking down a shell problem

Here's what I discovered.

If I put "en_US.UTF-8" into $LANG before executing the locale LC_NUMERIC
command, I get the correct output, at least for my computer.  Same for
LC_MONETARY and LC_TIME.

The question is, how do I get the correct setting for $LANG from the OS
without hard coding it, as I'm sure the value I used wont work in some
countries.

At this point, this is more curiosity than anything else.
