there is no max, you can increase the weight (which will also change the absolute weight, but what's important is relative weight)
list of countries with lower
san marino 1
SMR will generate maybe 1,2 or 3 riders, not more
Holland/italy/spain will all generate between a certain number, depending on weight of other countries, but lets say between 100-110 (for instance)
list of countries
San marino 1
in this case spain will generate more riders than holland, belgium or italy, as their weight is higher, however in this situation
-> but absolute weight the same because there is 30 weight less for another country -> spain will generate even more talents, because it's relative weight to absolute weight has risen even more..
