How can I change the locale setting?

I must have missed something very elementary. I can't find out how to change the locale setting from POSIX to en_US.

locale -a shows both are available. apropos locale provides a long list of locale programs including setlocale. The man page for setlocale specifies the header to use in a C program. I am not able to whip up a C program at the drop of a hat though I can work one out if forced. Still there must be a trivially simple way to change the locale setting though I can't find one in my reference books.

I would appreciate it if someone could take a moment to point me in the right direction.
