I'm not OP, but I think I also want what, I believe, he wants, namely:
A locale that I can select that will give me text displays of the
time, and text displays of file mtimes that do not mention, or use,
summer time, ever. Is there such a wrong-thinker/outlier variation of
locale? A sort of a sub-culture locale, that isn't really an fully
accurate reflection of the dominant culture in my geographic region?

For me, summer-time has always been something of an annoyance. With
the spread of computers in the sixties and seventies, I had hoped that
limitations of technology might kill summer-time. Instead, computer
technology has become an enabler of a feature of my culture that I do
not like.

And let's see what OP was really asking for also.
