If you are saying I am wrong then you are wrong. Notice that I am in Sweden and obviously does not get the same information and price for the books that you get in the US.

Just to be clear: This was a U.S. judge ruling on a settlement reached between the U.S. DOJ and three publishers who chose to settle rather than go to a U.S. court. I'm not certain why you would expect this ruling to have any effect on ebooks published outside the U.S.

Books often have publishers in different countries.

Very true, this ruling will have zero effect on pricing outside the US.

It is not published outside the US. I buy my Kindle books from US amazon and the publishers are US publishers.

Court hands Amazon major e-book victory

A judge approved a massive Department of Justice e-book settlement. | AP, Reuters Photos
By DAVID SALEH RAUF | 9/9/12 10:47 PM EDT

Chalk up a colossal victory for Amazon in its ongoing war against Apple for control of pricing in the e-books market.

In a ruling that shakes up the entire publishing industry, U.S. District Judge Denise Cote on Thursday approved the Justice Department’s settlement with a trio of publishers accused of conspiring with Apple to jack up digital book prices.

With her ruling, Cote set in motion the termination of contracts between Apple and three of the nation’s largest publishers — HarperCollins, Hachette and Simon & Schuster — and placed control of pricing for e-books back in the hands of retailers, particularly Amazon.

“This is huge for Amazon,” said Paul Aiken, executive director of the Authors Guild, which opposed the settlement out of fear that Amazon’s pricing structure could put brick-and-mortar book stores out of business. “And a big blow for Apple.”

It seems hard to reconcile those two statements.

Do you purchase through a VPN? Unless you appear to be purchasing from the U.S. or have your device registered in the U.S. and appear to be an American purchasing while abroad, you may purchase from Amazon.com and it show a different publisher. It's technically a different publisher even though "Transworld Publishers Inc. is a British publishing division of Random House." (Wiki) Different contracts, different pricing, etc...

This is then kind of absurd. I am not allowed to buy books from Amazon UK but I am allowed to buy books by British publishers from Amazon US. I had assumed that I bought US editions when buying from Amazon US.

It made more sense when you had physical editions published in different countries. Same file from the same server published by essentially different companies depending on where the purchaser lives? Yes, absurd. Random House is owned by Bertelsmann, a German company. They aren't particularly American anyway.
