No way that I've ever heard of, Aji. There's no pick-and-choose by country in the current set-up, except for some cases of local country laws that Google handles automatedly. Googlebots all share one crawl-cache these days, too.

If you don't want to ban all users by using a IP block, but just ban country-specific users coming from search engines, you can do a conditional check when visitors arrive.
Each click from an SE contains a cgi variable http_referer. If your code checks for a http_referer from Google.nl and then you further check for users in Holland based on IP address you could then conditionally show those who match some different content - or no content.
Then again, Google doesn't like you showing their users something different than normal site visitors so you'd risk a penalty or removal altogether (in all countries) when doing this.
