Part of a custom post type that I am building needs to simulate page 1 of a category archive. How can I found out how many posts are displayed per page across the WordPress installation? (I assume it is in wp_options but I cannot find it.) Thank you!

The option is appropriately named posts_per_page. FYI you can see the value of options in your database by visiting wp-admin/options.php.
