Where does MySQL get time from?

Where does MySQL get the time of day from?

If I change the Windows (7) time to, say, 12 hours ago and execute SELECT UTC_TIMESTAMP(), NOW() I still get the actual, and arguably correct, time.

That's good for keeping the database accurate but less helpful when testing.
