This is a version of the cube from figures 1.10, 1.12, 3.4, 3.7 and 3.8 of Visualizing Mathematics with 3D Printing, with owens' breakaway base design added, so that it can be printed with the long diagonal of the cube upwards. You should print with support, since the base is not quite flat on the bottom, but the design should not require support reaching up to the cube.

Is it supposed to be a perfect square? I don't understand why you wouldn't print it flat

It's a cube. The advantage of printing on a corner is that you don't need support. If you print flat, the horizontal edges need support.

I suppose, but the picture shows almost all edges printing pretty messy. I'd imagine support is preferable, no?

For designs like that typically you don't need support. I imagine the quality depends largely on the printer. For example, this was printed without supports: https://www.thingiverse.com/make:382571
