US has no national sales tax any state based tax (not all states have one) is applied on top of the purchase (not hidden like VAT).

I'd say that was the other way round.
State sales tax is always applied on top of the quoted price, UK prices include VAT - it is not "hidden."

As for the rest I don't know. I've heard the European markup is usually part operations cost and part mandated warranties/return policies.

I've seen it said that manufacturers charge more in Europe simply because the market will bear it.
Something to do with higher disposable income I believe.
