Wifi Country Regulations not set automatically

Bug Description

Ubuntu does not set Wifi Regulations according to country automatically.
This means that my computer wouldn't detect a wifi network on channel 13 (because it had the US regulations by default, where channels 12 and 13 are not allowed.)
I am from Portugal and using the portuguese language, and still had US regulation (or some other) as default.

This configuration should be done automatically. I did not have this issue in Windows or Android.

The issues is further described here (as well as a real example).
