What should the view inherit from?

I am trying to do something really simple here. But I can't find anything in the docs, or on help.openerp.com

I added a field (which is a many2one relationship with another table) on a form. This created a dropdown menu where can either pick or create new values.

If you click on "Create and Edit", this will open a new window, where you have a field that you can fill in, and save. But the label for this field is "unknown". Someone explained to me that I need to create a view for this form.

So I did, I created this view, at first, I inherited from another form (the users' one), but it throwing me error, moaning about missing fields. My question is: What should I inherit from?

The process works without defining my own view for this, but whenever I pick an existing record, create a new one, the value doesn't appear, but instead I have the name of the table, and its identifier as a link to the record (that will open a new window if I recall correctly). Is there a way to do a lookup instead, and display the value?

Here the code:

counties_view.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<openerp>
    <data>
        <record model="ir.ui.view" id="hubclub_counties_form">
            <field name="name">hubclub.counties.form</field>
            <field name="model">hubclub.counties</field>
            <field name="inherit_id" ref="base.view_users_form"/>
            <field name="arch" type="xml">
                <group>
                    <field name="county" />
                </group>
            </field>
        </record>
    </data>
</openerp>

extra-attributes.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<openerp>
    <data>
        <record model="ir.ui.view" id="hubclub_res_users_form">
            <field name="name">res.users.form</field>
            <field name="model">res.users</field>
            <field name="inherit_id" ref="base.view_users_form"/>
            <field name="arch" type="xml">
                <xpath expr="/form/sheet/notebook/page[2]" position="after">
                    <page string="Hubclub specific settings">
                        <group>
                            <field name="county_id" />
                        </group>
                    </page>
                </xpath>
            </field>
        </record>
    </data>
</openerp>

__openerp__.py

# -*- coding: utf-8 -*-

{
    'name': 'Hubclub module',
    'version': '1.0',
    'author': 'Openapp',
    'category': 'Tools',
    'depends': ['base', 'point_of_sale'],
    'data': ['extra-attributes.xml', 'counties_view.xml'],
    'demo': [],
    'installable': True,
}

hubclub_module.py

# -*- coding: utf-8 -*-

from openerp.osv import fields, osv


class hubclub_counties(osv.osv):
    _name = 'hubclub.counties'
    _columns = {
        'county': fields.text(),
    }
    _sql_constraints = [('county_uniq', 'unique(county)',
                         'Country already exists')]


# User
class res_users(osv.osv):
    _name = 'res.users'
    _inherit = 'res.users'
    _columns = {
        'county_id': fields.many2one('hubclub.counties', 'County'),
    }
    _defaults = {
    }


res_users()
hubclub_counties()

what is the error? also check that you have defined the model res_users inside hubclub_counties.

There is no error, just the behavior I described. Where can I find documentation on how to define res_users in hubclun_counties?
