In principle, this is the name of the local time zone. However, this always returns the empty string. This is because time zones cannot be uniquely identified by the attributes given by the OS (such as the stdName and dstName), and neither Posix systems nor Windows systems provide an easy way to get the TZ Database name of the local time zone.
