In general, I believe 10 in a "buddhist" country and 5 in a non-buddhist country. However, I don't know where the actual rule can be found in the pali canon. This is just from experience of a temporary ordination in the US

It is 10 in the Middle Country of India (majjhimadesa), and 5 anywhere else.

"For a disciple who has conviction in the Teacher's message & lives to penetrate it, what accords with the Dhamma is this:
'The Blessed One is the Teacher, I am a disciple. He is the one who knows, not I." -
