I cannot decide if this form of inprisonment is unsusally cruel or unusually lenient. It is, however, rather creative. Psychologically, I can see how something like this could break prisoners more quickly than say a stay at Rura Penthe. Irons's surprisingly grateful response to Sela has to be a ruse, as regardless of idlilic their new prison may appear, it's still a prison and their first duty has to be a way to escape it.
Irons is modeling grace under pressure for her crew - and simultaneously playing the diplomat with a foreign head of state. Both of which are a bit of a trick for a captured spy...
I am very much enjoying your analysis.
