Well after my awesome pics of Krashalotski & Old Mayor Burton, I'm down to #11,282 in the 94th percentile, which makes for a total population of 188,033. So the true answer is somewhere between 177,020 and that :-)
Hmmm....MoToR's rank & percentile would suggest a population of 202,300, so I pondered the situation for a bit, and if anyone knows me they know I love a pointless exercise involving statistics, so here goes:
The equation would require the assumption that either 1 position higher or lower would put you in the next percentile to calculate the max & min range - therefore,
8851 in 95th percentile - if 8850 would put me in the 96th, that would mean a max. population of 221,250, but if 8852 would drop me to the 94th, that makes for a minimum of 147,533.
10,115 in 95th - max of 252,850; min of 168,600
11,282 in 94th - max of 225,620; min of 161,186
So then, so far we've narrowed down the population to a max of 221,250, and a min of 168,600
Anyone else want to post their rank & percentile to futher narrow it down :-D ?

Your calculation is off, 8851 is higher score than 8850 therefore 8851 would be 96% and 8850 would be 95% so 8849 would be 94% by your algebraic equation.

Cliff, I started a new team 3 weeks ago. It is team number 241,750 something. So as of 3 weeks ago there was almost 242,000 teams. Of those teams at that time, there were already a number of abandoned teams and quite a few chase teams already setup.
Given that, and taking into the consideration the number of people with multiple teams, I figured we have around 100,000 to 125,000 people actually playing currently.
Here's some high and low stats:
R&J Ent. 3265 7130 698 (+109) 38(+5) 99th
R&J Ent - The Warped Version 376 376 178,347 (+2,904) 206,518(+12) 4th
