It depends what you mean by "the timezone" and "get the timezone" :-)

The timezones displayed in the clock are saved in gconf:
/apps/panel/applets/clock_screen0/prefs/cities (where you'll have to
replace clock_screen0 by something else, depending on your

Ok, so look at /apps/panel/applets/clock_screen0/prefs/cities (you'll
have to look at all "directories" below /apps/panel/applets to find the
ones where bonobo_iid is OAFIID:GNOME_ClockApplet), find the location
for which current is set to true, get the timezone for this location and
then use /usr/share/zoneinfo/ to get the country code for this
timezeon, and /usr/share/zoneinfo/ to get the english human
readable name for this country.
