Neither Lenin's or Stalin's Russia or Mao's China should be considered Lawful Evil; All three were Chaotic Evil, as there was little rule of Law. People could be taken from the streets, 'Tried' and sent to prison on the whim of the ruler; with no evidence offered about a crime.
Russia under Brezhnev became Lawful Evil; mainly because Brezhnev was to lazy to order arrests for the sole purpose of causing fear in the population.

Depends on the ratio of Chaos to Good vice Lawful to Evil.
The slave trade was very Lawful (If you consider the unwritten laws and pretty damn evil.)to
The Vor system seems to be at its best Chaotic Good as it favored people over principles.
