You can't really set a default starting address.

However, under "My Places", you can define addresses for "Home" and "Work". Then when you are using maps to get directions, you can use "Home" or "Work" as the start/end point instead of typing in a full address or lat/long coordinates.

More information from Google Maps Help

Is this information still valid? For the "new" Google Maps? (It's been a year.) I find it immensely annoying that USA is the default because I live on another continent. (I have already defined home and work addresses.) –  Torben Gundtofte-Bruun Feb 18 at 19:40
    
@Torben: Yes, it's still valid. –  Al E. Feb 18 at 19:41
