Price Tag

It's a quiz to challenge you to dig your knowledge
Can you mention a country on this Earth where any jobs have a price tag?
If you want to be a member of army, you just have to ask how much it is
If you want to be a member of police, you just have to ask how much the rate of this year is
If you want to be a judge or an attorney, you just have to prepare the money for it
The same thing goes to almost all of positions at any levels
No exception for the jobs in the department that represents God and religions
The tag is not visible but everybody knows about it
It has been practiced since a very long long time ago
Has never changed until today except the increasing of the rate
Have a clue?
Okay, I will help you
The name of the country ends with the letter 'a”
Get it?

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson

The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
