With regards to Law and Chaos, you are Lawful
With regards to Good and Evil, you are Neutral
Lawful Neutral people see themselves as a part of something bigger. They believe that everything operates according to a Higher Plan. Some put their faith in religion, some trust in science, some follow a political party or support a regime. Yet regardless of their different beliefs, they all serve something bigger than themselves. All Lawful Neutrals strive for a perfect society. They are not concerned with individual rights so much as the overall welfare of the majority. They see individuals as component cells of the "group organism." A person eventually dies, but people in general continue to exist. Therefore the only thing that truly matters is the collective, the group. One life is unimportant in the larger scheme of things. In the words of the old Italian mafioso from American Gangster -- "More important than any one man's life is order."
Lawful Neutral always follows the rules of the group. However, the specific rules will vary depending on which group you're talking about. An F.B.I. agent diligently enforcing the law and never questioning his superiors could be called Lawful Neutral. A Mafia member that is loyal to The Family, respects his elders, doesn't gun down innocent people and lives by a code of honor could also be called Lawful Neutral ... even though the mobster and the F.B.I. agent are deadly enemies. The term "lawful" does not necessarily mean you obey the Law of the Land. It only means you are loyal to a code of conduct (even if it's a criminal code) and that you're a team player. In this alignment, your value is defined by how others view you, not by how you view yourself. A perfect Lawful Neutral would be something like a computer, doing exactly what it's programmed to do and seeing all things in terms of true or false, right or wrong, yes or no. For Lawful Neutral, there are no fractions -- only ones and zeroes. A safe, boring alignment.

Fictional Examples of LAWFUL NEUTRAL
Don Vito Corleone, aka The Godfather ... any "by the book" federal agent played by Tommy Lee Jones (The Fugitive, Men In Black, take your pick) ... Rain Man, who lived in a perfectly ordered universe of his own ... The Terminator ... "HAL 9000" (the spaceship computer from 2001 : A Space Odessey) ... Mr. Spock from Star Trek (the real Star Trek)
Possible Real-Life Examples of LAWFUL NEUTRAL
No individuals come to mind (as might be expected), but some general examples might be : a low-ranking politician or government official that loyally serves the community ... an unimaginative bureaucrat that does everything by the book ... an average cop enforcing an average law ... a common soldier that does what he's told and gets the job done ... a teacher that values discipline over creativity ... a psychiatrist that sees medication as the answer to every social anomaly ... a scientist working within accepted theorums ... a brilliant autistic that sees patterns in everything
Your Destination in the Afterlife : NIRVANA
According to Gygax, your soul is going to Nirvana. In the Vedic/Hindu religion of India, Nirvana is the state of ultimate enlightenment and complete Oneness with the universe, where the individual loses his individuality and is immersed in the Cosmic All. In Nirvana, there are no separate identities -- everything is One. Likewise there is no illusion or uncertainty, for universal consciousness has been achieved. Depending on your personal philosophy, you could consider such a state to be either heavenly or hellish. In a way, it's probably both.
In the AD&D universe, the plane of Nirvana is unique in that it has only one level, unlike all the other outer planes which consist of multiple layers. This single plane of Nirvana lies between Arcadia and Acheron.
