Without any titles, why is Belgium at the top of FIFA rankings 5-year in a row?

FIFA has already announced new FIFA/Coca-Cola World Ranking. It is surprised thatt Belgium still remain the first place despite not having won any tournaments in recent years.  The Red Devils have occupied the position since September 2018.
Belgium firstly reached to the top spot in March 2016 and has dominated the rankings since then, propelled by consistent performances on the international stage.  The FIFA ranking was created in 1993. And the first place marks Belgium out as one of the most successful national teams around the world. Only Brazil and Spain have featured more in the premier position, 12 and six times, respectively.
 With world class players such as Eden Hazard and Kevin De Bruyne, Red Devils have risen as one of the references of world football. The answer lies in the comical system that is the FIFA rankings itself.
