What is pseudocode?  Am I interpreting that correctly as "false" code?

No. Pseudo code is kind of like source code in that it illustrates an algorithm. But it is not in fact any actual programming language, and so it is not really code. For example:

for all i from 1 to 100
    for all j from 1 to i
        if i divided by j has a remainder
            break
    if j equals i then i is prime


would be pseudocode for a trivial erasthenos sieve to find prime numbers.
