“Ready for my country”, if a web search is to be believed.

I've only a little French, but that's exactly how I read it.

However, I suspect "pret" may have subtle differences to our "ready".  In our library management software in Quebec, we called the circulation module "Pret".  It managed the availability and lending of library materials.  It might be good to hear from someone with experience in the French idiom of the correct period.
