Russia should be richest

One thing I just realized is that Russia is by far the nation that is most wealthy in natural resources on the planet per person. I’m guessing the United States or Canada would be pretty close seconds. So why isn’t Russia immensely wealthy and successful? My guess is the political system of socialism for 60 years that demotivated people to work, then followed by corrupt authoritarianism which continued the trend of not rewarding people for working hard?
