Is the additional cost in Switzerland due to a form of taxes? Or did Nikon decide the Swiss should pay 40% more than everyone else? If not, "What a ripoff" is a rather disingenuous statement. If it is the case, I'd agree. Which one is it?

It might be neither - and perhaps it would be better not to make "rip-off" comments without more information.

Rarely mentioned is that in the UK there is an approximate 6% import duty before VAT on lenses - which is nil on camera bodies or a body with a lens included in the price

Switzerland is not part of the EEC and might have import duties you are not aware of.

In lots of ways good photography is much more about how equipment is used rather than anything else.
