Oalia made its debut at the Internatia Song Contest at ISC 7 in Lördsberg, San Monique.

The First Era (#7 - #12)

Oalia debuted in the 7th edition of Internatia Song Contest and was regurarly competing. The first era does also hold Oalia's best result ever in ISC, featuring Kalafina's entry Kagayaku Sora no Shijima ni wa from ISC 8. But at ISC 12, it was reported that it would be Oalia's last edition. They would never be competing in the contest again. At least that's what some people thought.

The Second Era (From #59 - #92)

In Summer 2016 it was reported that Oalia would return to ISC. They joined the Waiting List in ISC 48 and joined The Roster, once again, in ISC 59. Their first contestant after 52 months absent from the contest did not do so well as the performer, Sval with To år tilbake did not advance to the grand final. In fact the competition was tougher during Oalia's second era in comparison to their first. And according to Oalia's main broadcaster OLA: The Oalian citizens rarely agreed on the ISC winner in some editions.

But Oalia never gave up. Even if the second era does consist of some embarrassing tries, such as ISC 77 when Hunter Hayes's Dear God gave Oalia their worst result ever with only 9 points in the semi: Oalia have also done some fantastic efforts. For instance did Ilse DeLange deliver Oalia's best result ever after 75 months when she competed for Oalia with her song Lay Your Weapons Down in ISC 82.

On February 2020, OLA announced their withdrawal from ISC due to their HoD's priority on college studies, so for their final edition, they partnered with the Kharónian broadcaster KATV2 to select their swansong entry "Sympathy" by Too Close To Touch, which at the end garnered a decent 18th place in the final with 107 points.
