We've just set up a new organization, and all of the date formats are defaulting to US mm/dd/yy rather than our country default dd/mm/yy (Australia). 

 

There are is a dizzying list of locations that date formats can be changed, but it's both annoying to change in *every* app, and a bit unprofessional for users/employees to have to do the same.

 

Id expect there is a single location this can be changed, but I can't seem to find it.

This also extends to things like Word page size defaults. Any new document defaults to "Letter" (US) rather than A4 (Aus/UK).

This is absolutely insane.
