Once a sport gets past a certain number of participants in a country, performances tend to fall off for it becomes much harder to effectively scout and develop people.

Eh, not necessarily, you just need a better scouting and development apparatus. If you look at the Best teams, how much development is actually done by the Federation ? Not a whole lot. It's the professional teams or University system that end up doing all of the development when you have a large economy to support those structures provided the sport is actually popular.
