(Spoiler Main) Why is the Riverlands so weak?

I mean shouldnt it be a lot more economically powerful than it is? With all its rivers irrigating the land shouldnt it be a major food exporter like the reach is? Or at least its central position in the continent of westeros, coupled with the huge amount of rivers flowing though it, shouldnt it be a major center for trade? It doesnt make a lot of sense that they dont possess a large city to rival Kings landing or Oldtown.
