The default fields can't.
You can however create a custom profile field and force that to be required.

it's possible to do this by using a custom field and hiding the default location one.

I recently made an addon for this on my own site (needed to preserve 12.500 locations entered by members, yet migrate to the new field)

I need to change so many things in regards to the use fields, I'm messing so much around the templates and phrases that will never be able to upgrade xenforo again, in the custom fields list it would be nice to have the ones that already exists so that we can change the names, make them viewable in different boxes or not, etc (just like custom fields are right now). that will be already a big advantage.
