I know that a 25 node network ought to have 4 authorities, 16 relays, and 5 clients, but is there a minimum required number of exit relays?

Test networks on recent versions of Tor (0.2.7?) will bootstrap with 0 exit relays, but they will only run hidden services.

1 exit relay is fine, but it's also worth testing with multiple exit relays to ensure your code doesn't depend on their only being 1 exit.
