>>> loc=locale.getlocale(locale.LC_CTYPE)     
>>> loc
('tr_TR', 'ISO8859-9')

getlocale() has issues on Unix, but worse issues on Windows. See:

* bpo-12726
* bpo-20087
* bpo-20088
* bpo-23425
* bpo-33934
* bpo-38805

I never use getlocale() and I never understood the purpose of this function. I use locale.setlocale(loc) (same than locale.setlocale(loc, None)) to *get* a locale: the result can be passed to locale.setlocale(loc, result) with no problem.
