At a quick glance, it appears to have something to do with the number of letters, since:

3 letters = 130,000
4 letters = 200,000
5 letters = 270,000
6 letters = 300,000 or 340,000
7 letters = 410,000

And there's something also with increments of 70,000, since the differences between nations are always in increments of 70,000 with the exception of Greece. Greece is the only one with 3 vowels instead of 2, but otherwise I see nothing particularly interesting about it.

Hmm...

The price is (xc + yv) where c is the number of consonants in the word, x is the price per consonant, v is the number of vowels in the word, and y is the price per vowel. x and y can be easily determined from the given data.
