This page illustrates the use of the GetGeoInfo API.  This page illustrates the actual API.  The use of this API is also demonstrated in other pages, such as the Latitude/Longitude display and the EnumSystemGeoID display.

Note that at the moment versions of Windows XP SP2 and below simply return empty strings for GEO_TIMEZONES and GEO_OFFICIALLANGUAGES.
