Posted in the K-r forum so I assume you are talking about the K-r firmware... I have one, so I know what you mean.
You are not picking your home town so much as your home time zone.
There appears to have been an idiosyncratic choice of multiple cities in some time zones, especially in Asia and Western Europe. It seems like one city per big country per time zone per continent, sort of... though that doesn't explain why some time zones have two cities in Australia, for example.
Not sure where you are posting from but they do seem to have every time zone covered, at least.

They don't have my time zone listed: Newfoundland Standard Time. NST is for the island portion of the province of Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada. NST is UTC -3.5 (yep, we're on a 1/2 hour time zone). When it is 8:00 pm in New York, it is 9:30 here.

I've therefore had to set my time zone to Atlantic Standard Time (i.e. Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada).
