Well, an inland country with no natural resources and a climate that does not allow anything to grow is not going to be very successful.
Hong Kong and Singapore are beautiful examples of what can be done with essentially no natural resources but good harbors (i.e. land forms), as an example, Japan comes close behind.
On the other hand, Canada and Norway are both examples of relatively advanced countries that have relied on their natural resources. Both have had extensive forests, fish, and, more recently, oil.
Canada also has the central plains where hard winter wheat grows well.
And, of course, there is the U.S. which has had all the advantages a country could have and even now relies on agriculture for much of its exports.
