I tried to set it manually and it works!

$countryRepository = 
$country = $countryRepository->findByUid(14);

afterwards I assign $this->user to the template variable 'user' and I 
can access the country name in the template via {user.country.title}

The problem only occurs when saving through the form.

The form field has the name


or when it's being prefilled (in edit mode)

value is the UID of a static_country record.

both lead to the same exception.

country column in TCA:

'country' => array(
	'exclude' => 0,
	'label' => 'Country',
	'config' => array(
		'type' => 'select',
		'size' => 1,
		'items' => array(
			array('', 0),
		'foreign_table' => 'tx_xxx_domain_model_staticcountry',
		'maxitems' => 1

I have other columns with relations to domain objects where not even a 
foreign_table is defined, but everything's working.

I admit never doing this type of relation - I've only worked with extending the FrontendUser and FrontendUserGroups, never mapping a non-standard TYPO3 table to a standard Extbase Model...
>> EXT extbase_staticinfotables does not help me out in this case. It only contains 1 Country model and has the same mapping to static_countries than I do in my extension.

Unfortunately there is no manual, it's only the manual template..
