Projection used to create maps.us ?

I've been unsuccessful finding documentation for map datasets in the SAS library. The dataset maps.us is a projected dataset. Assuming it was projected as 3 (or 4) separate datasets, with AK, HI, (PR), and Contiguous states separately projected, what projection was used for the Contiguous states? If it is Albers, what were the standard parallels?

Here’s a sample program on how this was done (from the MapsOnLine website). The default projection and parameters were used.
