The Get-WinHomeLocation cmdlet gets the value of the user GeoID setting and returns a .NET GeoID object. The Windows GeoID setting is a user setting that describes the home
location (that is, the country or region) of the current user account. Applications that require the current user account’s home location, such as a driver for a television
tuner application, can use this setting.

A table of GeoIDs is available at Table of Geographical Locations.
