On my edgy system it is runlevel 2.
Run the command runlevel in a terminal:
$ runlevel
See man runlevel.

Apparently to change the default runlevel it is necessary to edit 
/etc/event.d/rc-default. I have not tried this. If you don't know what 
you are doing you could get your system into a lot of problems, like 
continually rebooting.

the commands:
sudo init (0-6)
sudo telinit (0-6)
will change the current runlevel for the current session only.

I am not aware of any gui means to change the *default* runlevel.

See man init and man telinit.

BTW I am curious why    would you want to change the default runlevel?
