As shown in the screenshot at the Locale module of the KDE system settings is missing the list of countries.

As a consequence the number formats and other localization features don't work as desired in programs that use them (e.g KMyMoney).

Additional info:
kdebase-workspace 4.11.9-2
[testing] enabled

I've also tested with another freshly created user and it behaves the same.

It worked fine at some point but I can't tell which is the version that broke it.

I didn't yet report this at as I'm waiting to see what the Arch devs say about it.
This task depends upon

I guess you are using NoExtract in pacman.conf or you did run localepurge. If so, please be sure /usr/share/locale/all_language exists. Also, please take a look to

The localepurge hint is spot on.
Thanks and sorry for the noise.
