Lies, all lies. Perhaps, as with most tarps, it is a few inches shy of the advertised (raw) dimensions, but it's definitely more than 11.5'x11.5'. On the diagonal it is ridiculously long, which is why you'll have to sew on two more tie out loops so that you can hang it as a rectangle--unless you're hanging between some rather distant trees.
