iCloud Drive reports the same amount of free space as my local hard drive

My iCloud drive reports "6 items, 212.01 GB available." While the "6 items" part is correct, the free space being reported cannot possibly be. I have not paid any money to increase my iCloud Drive's capacity beyond what is offered for free. Is it perhaps showing me a mirrored copy of my iCloud Drive's content that resides on my local hard drive? And if so, is there a way to directly access the iCloud Drive itself (the one that's living "in the cloud"?) Or is Apple not allowing this?
